Before I do, does anyone know anything about the import CD I found through Amazon: Barry McGuire:EVE OF DESTRUCTION/THIS PRECIOUS TIME ... 74&s=music

It says it has a bonus track "One by One" 2:22

Is this from the Dunhill sessions?


One By One is an early Barry track recorded before he joined The New Christy Minstrels. I have this CD and I'm pretty certain it is a bootleg, but the sound quality is good even though the tracks are in stereo (I prefer the mono mixes).

To answer my own question, Barry's track "One by One" was included on Horizon's album "WP-1636/SWP-1636 - The Barry McGuire Album - Barry McGuire with the Horizon Singers [1963] One By One/Doo Dah/Town And Country/The Way You Are/Greenback Dollar/Little Boy//So Long Stay Well/Banjo/Another Country/The Good Times Is All Done Now/Oh Miss Mary/Old Paint"

In 1965, in the wake of Barry's success with "Eve of Destruction" tracks from two Horizon albums were then repackaged into:

Surrey SS 1003 - Star Folk with Barry McGuire Featuring Members of the New Christy Minstrels - Barry McGuire [1965] Compilation from Horizon WP-1608 and WP-1636. Greenback Dollar (S)/Far Side Of The Hill (M)/Fireball Mail (S)/Ride Around Little Doggies (S)/Stay Long Stay Well (S)//Puff The Magic Dragon (S)/The First Time (S)/Gold Wedding Ring (S)/One By One (S)/Oh Miss Mary (S)

The track "Town and Country" with the B-side "One by One" were released as a single.

The tracks are all available online for purchase.

I'll note that Barry covered "Oh Miss Mary" a classic Journeymen tune by John Phillips.
