Subject: RE: Origins: Seeger's 'All My Children of the Sun'
Unfortunately, Jim Musselman's notes from the "Songs of Pete Seeger" CD aren't any more enlightening. After explaining why Tim Robbins was asked to perform, he says: "This song is dedicated to those who have spoken out, in an attempt to correct wrongs long before they were recognized by society - the Ralph Naders, Upton Sinclairs, Rachel Carsons, Barry Commoners and Paul Robesons of the world." Nothing about whether real or fictional. (Not that I think it matters all that much for getting the purpose of the song, but I'd like to know, and so do others, it seems.)
