2012 release. "In the tumultuous 1960s the powerful voices of Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs and others shaped the political and musical landscape for many. Less known, but no less strident and artful, were the folk singers from the other side of town. For the very first time the hyper-patriotic voices of conservative folk music mavericks Janet Greene, Tony Dolan and Vera Vanderlaan are reissued and reappraised. Janet Greene sings eloquently of the insidious communist threat ('The Hunter And The Bear'), Tony Dolan pleads the case for democracy in Cuba ('Cuba Will Be Free') and Vera Vanderlaan reminds us that the price of freedom is preparedness and eternal vigilance ('Freedom Is A Hammer'). Remastered with exclusive scholarly liner notes, interviews and rare photos/ephemera, this collection presents the acclaimed counter-counter-culture songsmiths Janet Greene, Tony Dolan and Vera Vanderlaan in all their righteous and right-headed glory. Remastered from the original mastertapes 2012. 29 track CD. All original recordings. 20 page full colour booklet with exclusive scholarly liner notes, rare photos, interviews and cold-war period ephemera."
