In June 1986 John Denver released the album One World which has the track Let Us Begin, an anti-war song, which had been released as a single. On this day of that year, 30th July 1986, his record label, RCA, pulled the single. RCA had been acquired by General Electric, a major arms manufacturer, and they did not like this song with its lyrics of feeding the war machine but not babies. Thus the powerful, who get rich from making killing devices, get to silence the pacifists to protect their profits.
A video John produced to go with the song, with a short introduction from him, is here on YouTube.
This is simply the best piece of work that I’ve done in my career.
John Denver, 10th December 1987
