Red Flowers

dall'album "Tear Down The Walls" (1964) con Vince Martin

“It’s an anti-war song by Fred Neil which was written after the US dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The red canna flowers were the first flowers to bloom in the charred rubble, they became a symbol of courage and hope to the survivors.”
(Alex Gallacher, “The Attic Story and Karen Dalton – Red Are The Flowers”, su Folk Radio UK (FRUK))

Fred Neil scrisse questa canzone ben prima del 1964, anno di pubblicazione dell’album “Tear Down The Walls”. Infatti il brano si trova già interpretato da Karen Dalton nel disco “Cotton Eyed Joe”, un’incisione domestica realizzata nel 1962 a Boulder, Colorado, e riproposta in versione rimasterizzata nel 2007.
