Review:
Legendary folk singer Pete Seeger entertained children in the 1950’s and ‘60's with these traditional folk and activity songs and his warm affability, light, melodic voice and sprightly banjo seem as fresh today as then. Offering a sense of America’s music-making, barn-dancing pioneer past, this playful anthology includes such evergreen classics as "Jim Crack Corn," "Frog Went A-Courting," "Skip to My Lou," "Shoo Fly," and "Jim Along Josie."
