Product Description

2CD SET FEATURING 9 ALL NEW TRACKS RECORDED SPECIFICALLY FOR THIS COMPILATION BY BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN AND PETE SEEGER, ANI DI FRANCO, DONOVAN AND FOUR NEW SONGS BY SEEGER HIMSELF - 37 TRACKS IN ALL WITH ADDITIONAL MATERIAL FROM STEVE EARLE, BILLY BRAGG, TOM PAXTON AND MORE

Amazon.com

From small seeds, the 10-year-old label has harvested an abundant orchard of folk music, as this anniversary anthology attests. With Pete Seeger providing the spoken-word invocation and benediction that frame the two-disc set, while serving as the collection's patron saint throughout, it mixes highlights from the Appleseed catalog with new tracks featuring fellow travelers Bruce Springsteen (in duet with Seeger on "Ghost of Tom Joad" and Ani DiFranco (on Seeger's "Waist Deep in the Big Muddy"). The music not only revives folk tradition but renews it, as the pairing of Eric Andersen with Lou Reed on "You Can't Relive the Past" sounds recognizably like the work of both. The compilers pay as much attention to sequencing as to selection of material, with the first disc more often demanding justice, while the second one offers hope. With a roster that now includes veterans such as Donovan and Tom Paxton as well as relative newcomers like the Kennedys and Lizzie West, the anthology traces the legacy of folk tradition while offering indications of where the music's going. Here's wishing for many happy returns (and future anthologies). --Don McLeese

Format: Audio CD
Most of the musical reviews in this space center on individual and group performers or particular musical genres, especially folk, blues and classic rock and roll. Very occasionally this space salutes record labels like Chess, Sun, Rounder, Smithsonian/Folkway, Red House, and here, Appleseed Records. On those occasions the record label may be as important to the genre as the performances of the artists because they established a genre, drove it forward, keep it alive or acted as a repository, or all of the above. That is the case here with a CD salute to the 10th Anniversary of Appleseed Records (2007).

For the history of the label there is a more than informative booklet that comes with the 2-disc CD set, including plenty of discology-type information about each track. I want to concentrate here on the performers and the performances to give the reader who may not be familiar with any of this some sense of what the label has tried to do. I will just drop the name Pete Seeger in first place here because it is his spirit that has driven this project, his sense of the desperate necessity of preserving and continuing the folk and political protest traditions and because many of the songs here are performed by him, or are covered by other artists. Beyond that the litany of performers range form "born again" folkie Bruce Springsteen, actor and activist Tim Robbins, Pete's half-sister , Peggy, a folk legend in her own right, old time folkies Eric Andersen, Tom Paxton and some newer folkies like Ani DiFranco. A nice mix.

Of course, that description begs the question of what is good here. What do you need to listen to get the essence of the Appleseed tradition?

Liberal in outlook and acoustic, this is unashamedly opinionated folk music and I like it.

Weak left wing messages and dull musical content make this a totally worthless collection. Buy some uplifting real patriotic music instead. Try "Patriotic Country - Various Artists" from 2004...you'll feel better.
