Marxist Minstrels, The: The Communist Subversion of American Folk Music: David Noebel [1968]

If ordained minister David Noebel had been aware of the conservative folk combo The Goldwaters and singer Janet Greene, would he have been so "global" in his condemnation of American folk music on the above recording? No matter, for this LP, which was evidently nothing more than a marketing tool for Noebel's book "Rhythm, Riots and Revolution," is more entertaining as a blanket indictment of ALL folk music.

Rev. Noebel, though his photograph might indicate otherwise, was one hep cat when it came to the youth oriented music of the '60s. So what if he can't pronouce Phil Och's last name (he repeatedly pronoun ces it "Oooks") or if he seems more preoccupied with Bob Dylan's taste in women than his allegedly pinko lyrics?

Unfortunately, the minister's vigilence against FOLK music might seem a little misplaced for 1968. After all, most teenagers were dropping acid and turning on to The Jefferson Airplane, not Peter, Paul and Mary. This then begs the question: is there a 1975 Noebel follow-up treatise warning against the communist subversion of psychedlic rock? Or a 1984 diatribe against disco?

It is interesting to note that the leaders of the Soviet Union found "our" music almost as offensive as the Rev. Noebel (and made every effort to ban its import).

FROM THE BACK COVER OF THE LP (which is an advertisement for the book and says nothing of the LP):

ANNOUNCING AMERICA'S MOST NEEDED BOOK
The Book That Can Put Out The Fire Of Red Inspired Youth Revolution.

Read the unvarnished facts in "Rhythm, Riots and Revolution"...How the American Reds are using music to destroy our youth...Morally and Patriotically!

It took TWO YEARS to write this book that proves beyond any shadow of doubt: (1) the communist use of RHYTHMIC-HYPNOTIC music; (2) the communist use of BEAT music; (3) the communist use of FOLK music; and (4) the communist use of ROCK 'N' FOLK music.Tulsa's Got the Groove...

This book proves that the riots in Berkely... the insurrection at Watts... were in part inspired by the jungle beat Communist planned music, and personally directed by the "generals" of this ungodly "communist music" crowd.

Today's youth possess the power to destroy the United States of America and well they may..... unless the truths of this book can reach them in time!

EITHER FIGHT IT TODAY BY EXPOSING IT — OR DIE BY ITS MOMENTUM TOMORROW!

THE MAN AND HIS BOOK
David Noebel is an ordained Minister of the Gospel, internationally known as an Associate Evangelist of Billy James Hargis and Christian Crusade with headquarters in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He has spent two years in research for this book....which could be the most important book of our time.



A graduate of the Milwaukee Bible College and Hope College, he did his graduate work in Philosophy at the University of Wisconsin.

During the summer months, he serves as Dean of the Christian Crusade Anti Communist Youth University, The Summit, Manitou Springs, Colorado, and for the rest of the year, he travels the nation as an Evangelist on behalf of the Christian Crusade.

He has presented the thesis of this book on radio and television coast to coast, and was the subject of a feature in "Newsweek" Magazine.

You may not want to believe his message....but it would be folly to ignore it, for the future of our nation hangs in the balance!
