The first collaboration between a Bongo and a Beach Boy, exclusively for ONE's Agit8 campaign. You won't want to miss Richard Barone & Al Jardine and other great artists perform at http://www.one.org/protestsongs?page=....
Written by Pete Seeger and Lee Hays in 1949, this was one of the first protest songs ever to become a hit record. They first performed the song publicly in the midst of the federal trial for the leaders of the Communist Party of the United States, accused of generating support for the overthrow of the federal government. Seeger has been a teacher and mentor to Barone (who produced Seeger's most recent single), and was an inspiration for many of the Beach Boys' folkier tunes such as "Sloop John B." The group's harmonies were in turn a big influence on Richard's group The Bongos.
