A review written for the Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange
by Mike Jurkovic

Well you won't find anything close to Blowin' In The Wind or The Times They Are a-Changin' here, but you will find plenty of awareness and the need for vigilance in these unstable times.

Produced by Brian Gladstone, Protest Songs For A Better World is a thirteen-track rally cry anthology of original protest songs selected from submissions from around our troubled globe. All the tracks are wake up calls, but my personal highlights include: Southpaw Jones humorously ominous Protest Song, Lenny Solomon's evocative Gettysurg, Maria Dunn's rousing Troublemaker', Joe Dolce's Did You Get Stupid from Being Ugly (Or Ugly from Being Stupid?) and Williams & Williams' Between Iraq & A Hard Place.

All proceeds from the sale of this forward looking collection are donated to United Nations Foundation.
