DAWN OF CORRECTION--THE SPOKESMEN
the mid-60s, John Madara, David White and Local D.J. Raymond Gilmore
formed a group called The Spokesmen. This CD contains all
12 songs from the LP, including "The Dawn Of Correction."
This is the first time it has been released on CD.
TEXT IS TAKEN FROM THE ORIGINAL 1965 LP:
the history of popular music, the tastes of each generation have
reflected the tempo and the attitudes of the time. The success
of these trends and their acceptance by the public have been a barometer
for musical pundits down through the ages, to wit: in whatever direction
a generation is going, so goes the music of that generation.
Spokesmen are aptly named, for they represent the voice of a generation,
that has endured many and frequent changes, a generation that hovers
on the dawn of a new and better tomorrow, with promises of many
more changes. But there is good reason to feel strong confidence
in the future so long as there remains the youthful optimism of
tomorrow's leaders, as expressed in the words and the music of THE
CD is presented by John Madara through That Philly Sound, which
is dedicated to the music that came out of Philadelphia during the
50s and 60s. All of the songs were produced by Madara &
White, and many of the songs on the CD were written by Madara &
White and Raymond Gilmore. Madara & White also wrote and
produced such timeless classics as "At The Hop" and "Rock
and Roll Is Here To Stay" (Danny and The Juniors), "The
Fly" (Chubby Checker), "You Don't Own Me" (Leslie
Gore) and "1-2-3" (Len Barry, who also co-wrote the song
with Madara & White). These and countless others helped
to make up "The Sound of Philadelphia."
