This record literally defined the 1960's, and set into motion just about everything that happened in the late 60's - especially the Vietnam War protests.

This 45 plays this song perfectly - lots of surface noise to perfectly highlight this down & dirty gritty song!
This is the true MONO MIX of this song as it was originally heard on AM Radio when this was a hit record. FM Stereo radio at the time did not play pop or rock music, and basically did not exist for the youth of the world back then.
Barry McGuire was a true one hit wonder. This was his only record to crack the Top 40.
