Additional Note

This tape is labelled "General Thang--instructions on RCC songs." Recorded at 194 Cong Ly, it is a discussion among General Thang, General Lansdale, songwriter Pham Duy, and S.L.O. staff members Hank Miller and Bernie Yoh. Pham Duy speaks mostly in French throughout this tape. This was taped following a Thanksgiving dinner at Lansdale's quarters. General Thang, a close friend of Lansdale's and a top minister in Ky's cabinet, was thrilled to meet Pham Duy, whose music he remembered from his childhood. General Thang and Pham Duy, encouraged by General Lansdale, reminisce about the first days of the Viet Minh, and about the troop songs Pham Duy had written during the Viet Minh resistance against the French. (When the Communist control of the Viet Minh was revealed, Pham Duy quit that organization.)
The discussion begins with a comment from General Thang about persuading the people of Vietnam to back the government against the Communists. Soon the discussion turns to music as a way to rally the people. General Thang wants to have one inspiring song for all of Vietnam. The group discusses a song writing contest in order to find such a popular song. Pham Duy then talks (General Thang translates) about the folk music traditions of the different villages, and how difficult it would be to introduce one song. Since the problem seems to be that of restoring the pride and confidence of the people, Pham Duy suggests a program of restoring the old traditional music of each village. The music is the pride of the village; a village will not adopt the music of some other region. He gives an example of one song sung very differently in two different regions.
General Thang complains that the Viet Cong have simple, catchy songs which everyone seems to be singing. He gives one example of such a Viet Cong song, and it turns out to be one of Pham Duy's old Viet Minh songs. Pham Duy discusses the people of Vietnam, who are very tired of war, and the spiritlessness of their current songs. This discussion is continued on tapes # 5 and 6. A transcript of these tapes is found in appendix A.
