Product Description

It s no overstatement to say that American music and America itself would be very different without the lasting influence of the late singer/songwriter Woody Guthrie (1912 1967). He was the prototype of the 20th Century rambling minstrel, turning his travels and observations into a huge body of topical and timeless music songs that contrasted our country s natural glories and sociopolitical shames, pro-labor songs, both anti- and pro-war songs, kids songs, patriotic and left-wing songs, music for everyday people to think about as they sing.

When the 21-year-old Pete Seeger first met Guthrie, six years his senior, backstage at a benefit concert in 1940, he was enthralled by Guthrie s music, lyrical vision, and charisma. The two men started traveling and performing together, which was, in Pete s words, his own big, big education in learning about America. On the new 2-CD Pete Remembers Woody, Pete recounts his vivid firsthand reminiscences, wide-ranging and frequently humorous, of Woody s adult life Guthrie s transmutation of his experiences and omnivorous readings into popular although often controversial songs, his tips on freight-hopping and saloon singing, encounters with musical contemporaries Leadbelly and others, and many of the life lessons Pete has subsequently used in his own career, still ongoing in this Centennial year of Guthrie s birth.

Interspersed with Pete s recollections of Woody are versions of some of Guthrie s most famous songs performed by idealistic links in the topical music chain like Arlo Guthrie (dueting with Pete on one of the few Woody-Seeger co-writes, 66 Highway Blues ), the Work o the Weavers ( This Land is Your Land, So Long, It s Been Good to Know Yuh! ), CD producer David Bernz, whose own three-part Woody s Ghost serves to bookend and provide an intermission between the two CDs, and Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer, who added music to Woody s lyrics for Howdy Little Newlycome. The Vanaver Caravan, the 40-year-old troupe of musicians and dancers, performs the Depression plaint Do Re Mi, Union Maid, Pastures of Plenty and Peace Pin Boogie, while members of Hope Machine tackle I Ain t Got No Home and I ve Got to Know. Woody himself, with another of his running buddies, Cisco Houston, is heard on a 1940s recording of New York Town. Fink s banjo-playing on various traditional tunes helps tie together the masterful sequencing of spoken stories and related songs.

That two men Guthrie and Seeger with a passion to carry on and expand music s potential for social change among the less fortunate, as well as for entertainment should overlap, interact and inspire fellow and future musicians and listeners was a timely miracle. Listen to how it happened and how it lives on on this lively spoken and sung musical document.

Review

Fascinating and engaging... --- Scott Bauer, Associated Press

Listening to this wondrous 2CD set is like having the great man riding shotgun in your car, or filling your listening room up with recollections and stories of his dear friend, Woodrow Wilson Guthrie. --- Mike Jurkovic, Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange

Seeger s recollections provide illuminating context for some of Guthrie s best-known works, while also documenting his relationship with his fellow folk giant. --- Nick Cristiano, Philadelphia Inquirer

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Steve Ramm TOP 100 REVIEWER on September 30, 2012
Format: Audio CD
This is one of TWO Pete Seeger-related albums being released today (the other is the single CD titled "A More Perfect Union" which Seeger recorded with his neighbor Lorre Wyatt (and some guest vocals by Bruce Springsteen, Dar Williams and Steve Earle).. Each is different and I'll be posting my review of the "Union" title elsewhere on Amazon.

2012 is the Centenary of Woody Guthrie's birth and there have lots of tribute books and CDs (the Woody@100 box set is the perfect way to hear rare Woody tracks and read about him). But to hear about Woody from the guy who "was there" and traveled with him, this CD makes an important "companion" to that collection. For nearly two hours, over 2 CDs, the 93-year-old Seeger tells us about this folk music legend (who equals Seeger's stature as an American icon) in 1- to 3-minute narratives with titles like " "Songs Woody Liked", "How to Sing in Saloons" and "Woody Writes `This Land is Your Land'". These narratives were recorded over a period of years and Producer David Bernz has done a nice job of editing them. To add to Seeger's tales, Bernz has invited some of Seeger's biggest fans (Arlo Guthrie - who joins Seeger on one of the few songs Seeger wrote with Woody - Vanaver Caravan, Cathy & Marcy, and the tribute band, Work o' the Weavers) to add some music tacks. Bernz also composed a new song, "Woody's Ghost" to bookend the album and open Disc Two.

As the Centenary year for Guthrie winds down, this new release from the independent Appleseed record label, adds more insight on this folk music icon , and gives us still, another Seeger recording to add to our collections. Also HIGHLY recommended to music libraries.

I hope you found this review both informative and helpful.

Wonderful experience listening to Pete's reminiscences and Woody's music as presented by a number of really gifted musicians, some of whom were new to me but well worth becoming better acquainted with. Highly recommended.

This two-disc collection is basically Pete Seeger telling stories about Woody Guthrie, punctuated by Guthrie's songs, many of them sung by contemporary fans. It is not background music. You have to listen! Thing is, Seeger is a master storyteller, and he knew Woody better than most. I listened to these on my solo drive to and from work. It was as if Seeger was a passenger. I couldn't wait to get in the car. It was a very emotional experience too, as Seeger and Guthrie were major influences on my own youth, at times bringing tears to my eyes. I remember when... There are 48 tracks on this album, but the story ends with 43, if I remember correctly, and the rest is disappointing.

Pete Seeger
"Pete Remembers Woody"
(Appleseed, 2012)
---------------------------------------------------------------
While celebrating the centennial of Woody Guthrie's birth, few artists' contributions could be more welcome or more meaningful than those of the indefatigable, culturally immortal Pete Seeger, Guthrie's comrade and a champion of his legacy. This is one of two albums Seeger cut for the Guthrie anniversary, a double album which mixes music with spoken word, as Seeger reminiscences about their times together, including retelling some of the stories Guthrie told him over the years. It's a heartwarming and resonant work, and the format recalls Guthrie's own recordings for the Library of Congress, lo those many decades ago... Students of folk music history will find this a rich and rewarding collection. Sweet stuff! (DJ Joe Sixpack)

Wonderful learning what Pete Seegar had to say about his friend Woody Guthrie, especially about "This Land is Your Land."
