Pete Seeger: The Complete Bowdoin College Concert, 1960 - Behind the Scenes Mini-Documentary

Biography

Pete Seeger (b. 1919) has had a long and productive career as a folk song leader and social activist.

In 1938, he settled in New York City and eventually met Alan Lomax, Woody Guthrie, Aunt Molly Jackson, Lead Belly and others. Many of this group of musicians eventually formed the Almanac Singers in late 1940. The group performed for gatherings, picket lines, and any place they could ...

Editorial Reviews

Review

"As you might expect from a Seeger album, the songs on "At 89" take on some of the problems faced by America in 2008, and while the music is sometimes touched by melancholy, Seeger's faith in his fellow humans shines through clearly." -- j. poet, AllMusic.com

"At an age where most men are struggling for breath, Pete Seeger has made a vibrant, full-bodied album that encompasses all his magnificent talents. . . Seeger is buoyed by guest vocalists, children's choirs, etc., but stays center stage throughout on this masterful outing by an American folk music giant heading into his 10th decade on Earth." -- Joel Selvin, San Francisco Chronicle, September 28, 2008

". . . something of a treasure for longtime fans and packs at least a dozen treats for relative newbies." -- Jeff Vrabel, Billboard, Sept. 26, 2008

"...Spunkier here than he even gives himself credit for, Seeger loves being in front of a mic again and delivers a commensurate performance. Certainly a late in life valentine to his fans, he has earned the right to deliver any material in any way he sees fit. The real fans are sure to respond accordingly. This is the kind of set that defies both category and criticism." -- Chris Spector, Midwest Record, August 29, 2008

"Here's a record by a folk singer who is the opposite of an unhappy, delicate creature, who has no concern at all for the concept of the beautiful loser, who carries no loftiness or obscurantism about his own talent, who speaks to adults with the same clarity and care that one might speak to children, who believes that everything is done better in groups and yet puts enormous faith in the value of his individual effort. . . [a] sweet, antivirtuosic record . . . This is an artful gesture, but it's not just for art's sake." -- Ben Ratliff, New York Times "Critics Pick," Sept. 29, 2008

He combines his philosophy of life, his love of social equality, and his love of music in this album with songs and spoken dialogue.

Congratulations to Pete Seeger and to Jim Musselman of Appleseed Records for all of his work in getting Pete to record again.

Pete as 89 is as powerful as Pete at 50. The music he sings, with lyrics that matter, empowers him . My only criticism is the use of singers, but I have always like Pete to sing alone, or with an audience or with protest marchers. Choirs and such seem to dilute the power of his performance.
I have listened to Pete in all the "ages" of my life, and wish he has many more although he is 89!
One warning: Some of the songs are without Pete, and our songs he has done over the years. I would have preferred to use some earlier recorded songs of Pete, but these songs are very, very good.

We can only hope Pete will be around long enough to see a positive result in next week's elections! He is an inspiration to us all, a testament to the power of positive, dedicated, optimistic, conscientious, committed people to make this world a better place. Fans who enjoy this CD may also want to check out Pete's spoken recollections of playing the great Spanish Civil War songs on another Appleseed release, "Spain In My Heart: Songs of the Spanish Civil War". He shares some poignant memories and also plays some great banjo!Spain in My Heart: Songs of the Spanish Civil War

I think it is great that Pete can still perform at his age. I am 84 myself and cannot sing anymore. Of course, the reason is my chemo 24 years age. I and my sons consider that a small price to pay for my life. I love Pete's songs. They are very, very down to earth and beautiful. Thank you, Pete, and keep on singing. Ginny Evert

I suppose there are folks who can resist, but it's hard to imagine a life and a talent that is any more authentic, and dedicated to bringing healing transformation to life, human and otherwise. Whether it's nurturing future generations, or the heroic nature of an elder living to the hilt beyond the traditional retirement formula, I dare you to encounter the tear that will likely appear - not of sadness, but joy.

Pete Seeger has always been such a strong force for social justice, equality and protecting the environment; especially the waters. His voice is a little scratchy at 89 but he's still that amazing, strong and influential person! Irene

Pete Seeger at 89..........this is moving, meaningful and one of a kind. True, he doesn't sing all the songs, but his heart and soul are clearly there. The quality of sings is perhaps uneven and every song won't please every person. But the spirit is so strong and so real. The message is as it's always been. Well worth the money and a CD you'll value.
