Barry McGuire  "Eve Of Destruction" We remember back 44 years ago to the first real war protest song from a then 16 year old Barry Mcguire and hang on caause Barry will be with us in just a second with a brand new version of "Eve of Destruction" but first  Grab your tamborine, love beads and tie dye shirts and sing along.'  I'd heard the first Dylan album with electrified instruments. This is strange, but it's really true: I gave Phil Sloan a pair of boots and a hat and a copy of the Dylan album, and a week later he came back with ten songs, including "Eve of Destruction." It was a natural feel for him - he's a great mimic. Anyway I was afraid  of the song. I didn't know if we could get it played (on the radio). But the next night Iwent to Ciro's, where the Byrds were playing. It was the beginning of the freak period.... there was this subculture that no one in L.A. knew about, not even me, and it was growing. The Byrds were the leaders of the cult, and the place was jam-packed, spilling out on to the street. ln the middle of it was this guy in furs, with long hair, and dancing; I thought he looked like a leader of a movement. Terry Melcher told me that he was Barry McGuire, and that he'd sung with the New Christy Minstrels. A week later we cut the record and it sold six million. I didn't think it was a copy of anything. It was the first rock'n'roll protest song and Sloan laid it down in very simple terms, not like the folk people were doing. If you listen to the song today, it holds up all the way - it's the same problems. It's certainly an honest feeling, from a 16 year old. "Eve of Destruction" is aprotest songwritten byP. F. Sloanin 1965. Several artists have recorded it, but the best-known recording was byBarry McGuire. This recording was made betweenJuly 12andJuly 15,1965and released byDunhill Records. The accompanying musicians were top-tierLAsession men:P.F. Sloanonguitar,Hal Blaine(ofPhil Spector's "Wrecking Crew") ondrums, andLarry Knechtelonbass. The vocal track was thrown on as a rough mix and was not intended to be the final version, but a copy of the recording "leaked" out to a DJ, who began playing it . The song was an instant hit and as a result the more polished vocal track that was at first envisioned was never recorded.
