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

Amazon.com

A pretty stunning group of socially conscious performers (from Bonnie Raitt to Billy Bragg) join in tribute to the inspirational music and life of Pete Seeger on this expansive 2 CD set. The grand selection of songs is well-annotated with notes from the artists and Seeger himself about each piece and its place in the pantheon. Among the many highlights are Bruce Springsteen's heartfelt "We Shall Overcome," John Trudell's tense "Torn Flag," actor Tim Robbins's rap-like "All My Children of the Sun," and Ani DiFranco's quiet, brooding "My Name Is Lisa Kalvelage." Further listening: the Smithsonian/Folkways release of If I Had a Hammer, a remarkable collection of Seeger singing his own songs. --Michael Ruby

Product Description

This 2-CD boxed set is an impressive compilation of 39 different songs that Pete Seeger and others have written, sung and shared during the last six decades. The songs are performed by a wide variety of artists from Bonnie Raitt to Bruce Springsteen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yum... whoa... WOW! September 15, 2000
Format:Audio CD
You'll hear your favorites on this album, and you'll hear songs new to you that will blow you away.

Besides being a collection of songs honoring Seeger, these are wonderful on their own. Re-release these as singles, and they will be hits in the folk-music circles, and could hold their own on some more popular stations (like Chicago's WXRT).

For me, I loved Studs Terkel reading "Blessed Be the Nation," Jackson Browne/Bonnie Raitt singing, "Kisses Sweeter than Wine," and the deeply haunting "My Father's Mansion" as sung by Billy Bragg and Eliza Carthy in a celtic flavor.

Hearing Donovan's version of "My Rainbow Race" was refreshing, and Dick Gaughan's dramatic rendering of "Waist Deep in the Big Muddy" knocked my socks off. Surprising me was Tim Robbins' "All My Children of the Sun." So he can sing, too? Amazing.

Listen to Greg Brown singing "Sailing Down My Golden River." He has a Johnny Cash thing going on when he sings it, don't you think? Check it out. Very cool.

There are others, some 39 songs in all, and each I honestly liked. No duds, no "why did they put that on the album" songs.

I fully recommend this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT!!!!! I LOVE Pete Seeger! January 4, 1999
Format:Audio CD
I just heard this 2cd set and am blown away by it! I didn't realize he had written all those songs! I loved the reggae song, and all the others. I work at two libraries. One library had it, and I am going to buy this for my other library, and a copy for me, since it has all the notes from Pete and the artists who sing his songs. EVERYONE should hear this!

5.0 out of 5 stars What an amazing tribute... November 12, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
In agreeing with all the other top-star reviews in this list, I want to add that part of what makes Pete Seeger such a treasure is the timelessness of his writing. Reggae Pete? Why not! Like Shakespeare, adapting classics for modern tastes only emphasizes their universality. This tribute makes it clear that Pete's music belongs in the global culture, for all generations present and future to discover and make their own.
On a separate note, I want to direct America-centric readers to the work of Tommy Sands, a great friend of Pete's who sings the title song. North-of-Ireland Irish, Tommy follows in Pete's peace-activist footsteps, and deserves the international recognition he has received for his work... Slàinte!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Pete Seeger Feast To Carry On To The 21st Century December 29, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
On first listen, the divergent arrangements and production of these Pete Seeger classics recorded by others startle. However, after a few listens I can't get enough. The folk melodies wrap around the new voices and interpretations like they should... beautiful and compelling music by the national treasure that is Pete Seeger.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy It. Too cool. October 9, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I love this set. It blends the works of Pete Seeger and many of the artists of subsequent decades for me. If you don't know who Pete Seeger is, get it. If you do, you will love the feeling of coming home, but to a repainted house with different furniture. Pete Seeger is an icon. You should know what he's done for us. This CD will give you a taste of his impact in the U.S.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gone but lives on April 16, 2014
By NY 2 AZ
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Pete Seeger...that says it all and this compilation is priceless. I purchased it for myself..and to also play for my 3 year old grandson so he hears meaningful, good music and messages during the day versus the mindless, self-centered pap that is wholesalers to our youngsters at every turn. Love Pete? Then play this music and remember the good times!

Like many people, I loved the late Pete Seeger's music but hated his far left socialist lunatic politics. Nevertheless, this CD (Where have all the flowers gone Vol. 2) is a pure joy to listen to and has some of the his greatest songs. Pete just died fairly recently and was in his 90s and still active chopping wood at his upstate New York home before he died. Some of the great songs in this CD include the following:

We shall overcome, Oh, had I a golden thread, Letter to eve, All my children of the sun, Living in the country, The torn flag, To everyone in the world, Over the hills, I come and stand at every door, My rainbow race, Quiet early morning and numerous other songs.

If you are a Pete Seeker fan you might want to check out this CD.

Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Never Trust a Politician: A critical review of politics and politicians).
