Great Variety

Seeger travelled the world extensively, and the folk influences from every corner influenced his song selections and self penned compositions. All the while, his committment to working people and their plight caused by greed and abuse of power was always part of his reason for communicating through song. Seeger took that selflessness, which is usually evident only in religious music, and created work beyond the bourgeois, egocentric outpourings of most folk composers. Much has been made of whether or not a singer of roots based music must have lived the life, ala Woody Guthrie and his status as The Dust Bowl Balladeer or Mance Lipscomb as a sharecropper, and the argument is legitimate to a certain extent. However, as a synthesizer of musical strands, Seeger is as good as it gets. Many of his songs serve as anthems for various social justice causes and are therefore timeless. His versatility and mastering of banjo and guitar add to the overall enjoyment (example: 12 string guitar work on "Living In The Country"). Much critical fanfare has accompanied Bruce Springsteen's coverage of Seeger's playbook, and it is deserved, but, to fully appreciate it, this is an important companion piece. One of my best memories as a child was of Pete Seeger, once a week, visiting our class at Downtown Community School in the East Village and teaching us about songs and what was behind them. It has served as a positive inspiration throughout my life, now sixty-four. If this record does even a little of that for you, it is well worth it.

Half the Flowers Are Gone

The last half of the song is not on this version of Where Have All the Flowers Gone.
I give this 2 stars (any) because Seeger was the great voice of activism in the 20th century, and I expect the other songs are complete. Had Where Have All the Flowers been complete, this would get 5 stars.

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...
