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 ...

Format: Audio CD
I love Pete, and thought this would be a great collection to play (and sing along to) in the car. It works pretty well, except that the editing is poorly done. Several of the tracks are taken from live performances and originally ran together with another song. The beginning or end of the tracks are obviously missing something. It might have been better to chose a different source album or song, rather than chop up Mr. Seeger's great live renditions. I can understand the producer wanting to include these particular songs together -- it seemed to be a near perfect cross-section of classic Pete Seeger. Save up and buy the original albums that these tracks were drawn from, there is a great difference in hearing them in their original settings. Now, about the commentary offered by those ticky-tacky boxes in today's culture...

If you don't have these classic Seeger songs already on other discs, this is a good value. As another reviewer noted, the editing and sound quality is acceptable, not perfect. If they wanted ten bucks more, it might not be a wise choice compared to his "We Shall Overcome" concert, for instance. But for this budget price, you can buy famous songs by one of the most famous singers, in performances recorded during his years of widest fame. Pete's famous passion for social justice, his preservation of tradition, his humor, his internationalism, his spiritual kinship with Woody Guthrie are all on display. How can you beat all that?

Format: Audio CD
PETE SEEGER-CLEARWATER CLASSICS: Whether warbling political protests or children's nursery rhymes, the tireless PETE SEEGER has probably taught more songs to more people than any other modern folk artist over his seven decade career. He co-authored IF I HAD A HAMMER, WHERE HAVE ALL THE FLOWERS GONE and GUANTANAMERA...huge hits for TRINI LOPEZ, THE KINGSTON TRIO and THE SANDPIPERS respectively...along with TURN TURN TURN, his adaption of a Bible verse with which THE BYRDS helped invent "folk-rock". SEEGER's laid back, plaintive vocals and subtle banjo shadings serve him well on his own versions of these beloved standards. Many tracks here are enthusiastic concert recordings that demonstrate what SEEGER does best, namely prefacing numbers with a bit of history and encouraging audience participation on THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND, JOHN HENRY, MICHAEL, ROW THE BOAT ASHORE and others you probably have known the words to since grade school. From the timeless message of Civil Rights anthem WE SHALL OVERCOME to a rousing singalong of the traditional DOWN BY THE RIVERSIDE, CLEARWATER CLASSICS is a very likable, well appointed collection of PETE SEEGER's greatest hits.

RATING: FOUR PROTESTS

I have several CD's by Pete Seeger. In my opinion, Clearwater Classics is an outstanding CD, and one of Pete's best.
