Perhaps no single person in the 20th century has done more to preserve, broadcast, and re-distribute folk music than Pete Seeger, whose passion for politcis, the environment and humanity have earned him both ardent fans and vocal enemies since he first began performing in the late '30s. His passion for authentic folk music is clear by his voice and chiming banjo which both sing out with a clarity that rings true. His ceasless passion for reaching the hearts and minds of those who will
listen is summed up by the inscription on his banjo which reads "This machine surrounds hate and forces it to surrender." Pete Seeger's music does not force hate to surrender with muscle or intimidation but with his simple honesty and pure- hearted clarity which has truly changed the course of history during the 60-plus years that he has been performing
( This 22-track compilation provides a fitting
contribution to Seeger's finest works.
