"i read about bobby jameson in an article in mojo magazine and decided to check this out. it's an excellent album that sometimes reminds me alot of love, especially on songs like "girl from vernon mountain". both jameson and love were from los angeles but jameson claims to have preceded love, so you have to wonder who influenced who. some of the more folky sounding songs kind of have a bluesy feel, ala fred neil. songs like "there's a war going on" and "world war 3" are quintessential folk protest songs; with heavy strumming and intense and paranoid vocal delivery. good recording quality, good songs... not quite a lost classic but interesting music and an insightful look at some of the deep roots of rock and roll."
Amazing lost album!!!

"Chris Lucey aka Bobby Jameson's Songs of Protest and AntiProtest is an amazing album. Comparisons to Da Capo ear Love give you some idea but don't totally capture the sound of this music. Its a truly inspired and original album featuring mainly vibes, stand up bass, acoustic guitar and Lucey's great voice. A great jazz/folk sound with a mellow vibe but not overproduced a la some soft pop. The bonus tracks are of a different more folk/protest style and are a bit tedious. But the album proper is one of the best things from the 60's and easily stands up with other West Coast greats such as Love, The Byrds, and the Millenium. Buy this at once!!"
