In 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.




"Throughout 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.


"The 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 SPOKESMEN."


This rare 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."
