Subject: RE: Quintessential Pete Seeger Recordings?
I'd agree that "We Shall Overcome: The Complete Carnegie Hall Concert 1963" is the one to use to introduce your students to Pete. It also presents a great springboard for discussion of the historical context of the Equal Rights Movement and the events of the times that made it necessary. It's great to know that there are teachers out there who recognize the value of this music. (Or any music for that matter!)
