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.
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 RubySee all Editorial Reviews
This is a galaxy of modern singers singing folk songs. Some are wonderful, but others are just ok, especially if you like folk singers. Read morePublished 20 days ago by Marie Taylor
