Review:
"You know, there's a lot of good music in our country you never hear on the radio, don't hear it on the jukeboxes or on television. Just ordinary old-fashioned songs that one person teaches to another..." Folk music legend Pete Seeger was reaching out to young listeners when he spoke that introduction to this still-vibrant album, first released in 1959, and the warmth of his storyteller's magic and activist spirit still speaks to listeners of all ages. Despite some varying sound quality in the tracks that were recorded in concert, Seeger's expressive voice and his passionate energy still infuse these heartfelt and playful human stories from the past-ranging from "Skip to My Lou" to "Weave-Room Blues"-with timeless appeal.
