This is not Chris Ducey's original version of Songs Of Protest for sale on Amazon

It has been clarified by Mike Stax and Chris Ducey himself that this is not Chris Ducey's work...It is being misrepresented on Amazon and sold as the work of Chris Ducey which is a fraud.....

In a series of messages on Feb 28, 2013 between me and Mike Stax (ugly things magazine) Stax, who was in direct communication with Ducey, said Ducey listened to the songs on this link and said it wasn't him. Ducey said his version of Songs Of Protest was done as a solo with guitar and harmonica only. This version on Amazon would be a 3rd and unknown version, and a completely different set of songs and lyrics written to the titles on the original cover from 1965, as portrayed on the  album jacket above.


  1. How you going Bobby? I'm glad you're still around. I hadn't seen anything from you for a long time.
    Keep fighting!
    Have they changed the tracks on the site now?

  2. whoa I saw that before on Amazon and thought it was a mistake - didn't bother to listen to the tracks - now I did and while I believe it's not Ducey (i compared his Penny Arkade voice and a track he did on Capitol and then his 70s stuff) I wonder if those sneaky dudes at Mirra got ANOTHER artist to give up some songs ?? This is basic like you mention just acoustic guitars but there are at least 2 people contributing and I never hear a harmonica. Sounds like New Christy minstrel type style . Not bad but not good - your take is still legendary and for a few reasons. Sad it didn't work out then but at least the integrity of what you did trancends Money.
