Another top article by the Daily Gerald reporters……Red Flag of Destruction..(Loved and Forgotten)
The archives were searched and this song was found, and for your enjoyment have decided to post it on Gerry’s Space blog site. As the writing says it is very powerful song. Maybe not so relevant today, but meant a great deal in the 70’s
This is quite a powerful song, I did not realise how much until I decided to put it together and make a video out of it. Because I cannot upload audio and video’s, the only way to do it was to upload to ‘You tube’. Having listened and manually writing the lyrics, it was brought home, ‘man these are powerful words’
My American friends of this era will probably be moved as well as us here in the UK, because we in distant way felt part of the movement going on. Everyone was, that is those into music and anti-war trend, CND in UK, we listened to Bob Dylan and Black Sabbath, James Taylor, one of my favourites, plus many other’s who wrote anti-war/ protest songs of some sort. Most top artists wrote something.
We, that is a few friends got together and went to London and recorded this as well as a couple more, the quality is not too good, original tape/record now in Seattle and my copies over the years showing wear. But I think one can still enjoy by allowing for a little nostalgia.
