Review by Al Campbell

The majority of this material was released as extended play 7" singles that accompanied Rag Baby magazine as cheap promotion for anti-war sentiments. Even though many of these topics haven't dated well, it's a curious time piece and worth checking out for the alternative versions of songs that later showed up on McDonald's Vanguard albums. Two acoustic takes of "I Feel Like I'm Fixin' to Die Rag" from October 1965 only hint at the psychedelia that was to shortly follow. The June 1966 session adds the full-blown electric element sounding even "trippier" than early Grateful Dead on "Thing Called Love" and "Bass Strings." The last session from May 1971 reveals a return to earlier acoustic settings from Country Joe (minus the Fish) with his bleak anti-war sing-alongs, "Kiss My Ass," "Tricky Dicky," and "Free Some Day."
