Reseña de álbum

Pete Seeger's repertoire was not limited to songs with specific sociopolitical goals, and the most familiar versions of his most popular tunes were done for Columbia. Still, it's hard to imagine doing better than this compilation of Folkways recordings (most from the late '50s and '60s) if you want evidence of Seeger's importance and skills as a spokesperson for worthy causes. Dividing into segments addressing "unions and labor," "peace," "civil rights," and "hope," this has the original 1956 versions of "If I Had a Hammer" and "Where Have All the Flowers Gone," along with other tunes identified with Seeger like "We Shall Overcome" and "Turn! Turn! Turn!" (the last from an unreleased tape of unspecified vintage). The liner notes explain the origins of each song, as well as how their structures have evolved over the years; a couple of 1998 tracks show his spirit intact, but his voice (as he himself admits) losing strength.

Pete Seeger is the greatest political protest songwriter ever.

Pete Seeger is simply great. He teaches his messages of love and peace the way noone else can. PEACE. US OUT OF IRAQ!

Remembering Pete Seeger

When I heard that Pete Seeger had died, I bought a copy of "Joe Hill" off his classic "If I Had A Hammer" LP. My best memory of Pete Seeger is the sunny afternoon at Sugarhouse Park in Salt Lake City many years ago. It was a protest and celebration of Joe Hill Day. Joe Hill was a well known folk singer around the turn of the 20th Century. He was a protester for worker's rights and was part of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) movement, often called "The Wobblies." He was framed for murder in Utah. Despite appeals and support from notable individuals and groups nationally, including the daughter of the President of the LDS church at the time, Joe Hill was executed by firing squad at the state prison which is now the site of Sugarhouse Park.

I will never forget the joy and power of Seeger joining with local musicians like Rosalie Sorrels and Utah Phillips to lead all of us in singing songs that protested and songs that rejoiced in human rights like Joe Hill, We Shall Overcome, This Land is Our Land, and even some of Joe Hill's songs. God bless and keep Pete Seeger and his legacy.

I am glad to have this song on my iPad. Our friend Dick Nikiel led this song at our wedding 46 years ago this past June. Richard W. Hammer

Perhaps no single person in the 20th century did more to preserve, broadcast, and redistribute folk music than Pete Seeger, whose passion for politics, the environment, and humanity earned him both ardent fans and vocal enemies ever since he first began performing in the late '30s. His battle against injustice led to his being blacklisted during the McCarthy era, celebrated during the turbulent '60s, and welcomed at union rallies throughout his life. His tireless efforts regarding global concerns...
