Pete Seeger's recording career covers more than 60 years, so a single-CD collection is bound to leave out more than a few worthy songs. But the 16 selections on Pete Seeger's Greatest Hits include indispensable Seeger-composed classics like "Turn! Turn! Turn!," "Bells of Rhymney," and an abbreviated a cappella version of "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?" Also included are songs Seeger popularized, such as "Wimoweh," which he learned from Solomon Linda's original South African recording in the 1940s, and "Guantanamera," which he picked up from some children at a Catskills summer camp where he was singing. All of the performances are drawn from his 1960s tenure at Columbia Records--only the first 12 tracks were included on the original 1967 package--and include both studio and live recordings. This CD features only a small fraction of the songs that could legitimately be called Seeger's greatest hits, but because most of these selections are so important to his career, this set can be thought of as the greatest of his greatest hits. --Michael Simmons

There hasn't been another that's walked among us that has been quite like Pete Seeger. Pete's 83rd birthday was in the last week, and I thought I would write this note of thanks to him for all that he has given us.
My Mom used to sing me "Little Boxes" (originally Malvina Reynolds) when I was quite young--a memory I realized when this CD began to play for the first time in my player. I now sing this song to my children. It's great to hear these songs sung by the source..."Turn Turn Turn" and "Guantanamera" are wonderful. There isn't a bad song on the disc.
This man has led a folksinger's life, and his voice is warm like a Pendleton blanket in the Fall. Don't stop with this CD...get some by The Weavers, too. Pete sounds awfully good with Lee Hays, Ronnie Gilbert and Fred Hellerman. There's a VHS tape out there, too, about The Weavers and is quite good.
Thank you, Pete Seeger.

With all the hubbub about Bruce Springsteen's latest CD (a worthy purchase I might add) I thought I'd also send a kind note thanking Pete Seeger. Being a child of the '60's I saw Pete Seeger more times than I can count at every protest rally, do-gooder function, event celebrating freedom of speech, protesting war, injustice, violence, pollution, environmental issues, human decency, and down right good neighborliness. Always wearing a well-worn paisley cotton shirt, rolled up sleeves, cordoroy cap, and lived in jeans. If we have a troubador in this lifetime, Pete's it. His heart and soul is in his music. It's also in the right place. Listening to Pete Seeger can't help us to be better human beings. This is as good a place to start. He's as close to Woodie Guthrie as we're going to get in this century. Cherish him.

First off, 5 stars to Pete Seeger for popularizing many songs that went on to become hits for other artists (Seeger, himself, actually only wrote 2 of the songs in this collection). My problem with this set is that most of the songs are live recordings which I find to be annoying. You can sometimes hear the audience make noises during Seeger's performances. Also, the offering is skimpy, only 52:46 minutes of music. Much could have been done to beef up this collection, including offering a full version of "Where have All The Flowers Gone?", though the 2 minute a cappella version is beautiful and a highlight of the CD. The liner notes and photos are good.

Decided it was time to add Pete Seeger to my CD collection while working on a paper titled "Profiles in Activism: How and Why People Get Involved". I conducted a series of interviews for this project, and one of my questions was "Who inspired you?" Over and again Pete's name came up.
Now I have the CD (listening as I key this in) and I can see why. The first song alone is worth the price ("Little Boxes" - written by Malvina Reynolds). "We Shall Overcome" is a classic from the Highlander school and the civil rights movement. Shoot, all of these songs are classics.

I have reviewed some of Pete Seeger's other albums elsewhere, including some remarks concerning our political differences. Whatever those differences may be there is no denying that brother Seeger has for more time than I care to remember been central part of the progresive protest folk music tradition. I actually first hear him with the old Weavers group and I believe that the first song was Leadbelly's Goodnight Irene. Some of the songs on this album were sung by that group,as well. Bells of Rhymney is timeless. I would pay special tribute to Knee Deep in the Big Muddy that is about his World War II military service and written and sung during Vietnam. Except in changing it to the Big Sandy we could be singing it today about the quagmire in Iraq (and seemingly about Afghanistan, as well).

This CD is just a mostly live 60's Pete Seeger data point, and I'm sure not his best singing or playing is represented. But Pete's genuineness and affection for the human condition is ever-present. In terms of production values, I enjoy less the pre-/post-song applause and enjoy more his commentary and unique speaking voice. Personally, applause in the soundtrack doesn't make the music be more alive to me; it just interjects 5-15 seconds of loud static. I also lose focus when the audience sings along in a recording, even a folk recording, but I do like it when the artist tells an inside joke or anecdote and the audience chuckles. I like to hear children exclaim. Having raised several children, our family has in one place or another a couple of Seeger LPs targeted to children and adolescents -- in horrendously scratchy overly-loved condition, completely eaten up with love as it were. While acknowledging the inwardly private and family identity of a touring musician, with its built-in conflict to the need for physical presence and daily normalcy to ones most needful, in Seeger's outward face I see inspiring self-actualization and a recognition of a greater thing, powered not by ambition but by honesty, gentleness, endurance, belief that each man is an ordinary man, and a twinkling eye. Pete Seeker is a buoy and a beacon, a minstrel who makes children happy and strong and a revolutionary who reminds us of our personal and political reason to exist.
