5.0 out of 5 stars Vietnam without the propoganda 29 Jan 2011
By Edna85
Format:Audio CD
Country Joe still remains one of the most undevalued singers. This album helps to show some of the goings on within the Vietnam war without all of the propoganda. I found the album really easy to listen to.

1.0 out of 5 stars Meagre CJ rations 10 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD
Worthy but uninspired. 'Welcome Home' is the best of a pretty mediocre bunch of songs and even that sounds forced. As for the guitar jams ... Hendrix's Machine Gun is my Vietnam Experience. Buy Incredible Live and save your dough.

5.0 out of 5 stars The sights and sounds of the 60's 30 Sep 2008
By Bernie Weisz - Published on
Verified Purchase
I as reading the last review and I found it odd that someone would view a video to hear the backround music. In this case, it was "Country Joe" McDonald". I'm not sure why the previous reviewer thought "Country Joe" made country music. I liken Joe McDonald to events like "Woodstock", "Haight-Ashbury", the "Fillmore West" and the whole "Acid Scene" that writers like Ken Keasy wrote about. The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test McDonald played no country music. Hs contempories were bands like "The Doors" who did a song called "The Unknown Soldier" and "The End" (both anti-Vietnam) and Jimi Hendrix who wrote "Isabella" and "Machine Gun" (also anti-Vietnam) Room Full of Mirrors: A Biography of Jimi Hendrix Regardless, Country Joe McDonald got together with a company called "MPI" and produced this amazing video that truly juxtaposed the horrors of Vietnam with the Vietnam Veterans Against the War marching on Washington Nam Vet : Making Peace with Your Past It also showed the "Days of Rage" where Mayor Richard Daly in Chicago during the 1968 Democratic Convention unleased his police "goons" against protesters against the war outside the convention Battleground Chicago: The Police and the 1968 Democratic National Convention juxtaposed with planes crisscrossing the rice paddies of South Vietnam giving the terrain a good dose of Dioxin. Agent Orange: Collateral Damage in Vietnam For good measure, McDonald threw in the classic Bhuddist immolating himself in Vietnam protesting Catholic prejudice along with a young girl running naked after being burnt by napalm Long Time Passing: Vietnam and the Haunted Generation The film concludes with a teary scene of all the dead's names at the Wall in Washington.Letters on the Wall: Offerings and Remembrances from the Vietnam Veterans Memorial This is a sensational film that will keep you thinking for hours about the turbulent times of the 60's. The question is: will these scenes reoccur with our never-ending, ongoing commitment in Iraq? Let's hope not!

it is worth it for the Jam alone. Will send chills down your spine and make your mind drift all over the pace
5.0 out of 5 stars Old protest music by an old hippy. Definitely not country music. 9 Jan 2013
By Steve Merriam - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a compilation of songs published on other records. It is still good. Writing a protest song was and is just Country Joe McDonald’s way of saying hello. If you are interested in the 60s or the Vietnam War this is worth considering. The most known song on this album, The Fixing to Die Rag, is less raucous than the Woodstock version of that song and still a good version, with the advantage that I can play this one for the grand kiddies without their grandmother going ballistic. For a long time this album was only available at great cost but now it has been republished at a reasonable price and is worth considering.

5.0 out of 5 stars Prog Rockers rejoice 14 Jan 2003
By Ian - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Lets get this out of the way, I HATE COUNTRY MUSIC. I mostly listen to progressive metal.
But when I first heard country joe(not so much with fixin to die rag) I thought I was hit by a train. It was so amazing, so uplifting. I couldn't believe I was listening to something labeled as country and was liking it. But it doesn't sound like counrty. Almost prog country... I dont know. But one of the best singers I've ever heard
