The thread on Pete Seeger's lost-and-found banjo got me thinking. The person who found and returned the banjo had never heard of Pete Seeger! As a music teacher, I got to thinking- have I spend enough time naming the living legends of our time? I'm planning to introduce the kids (ages 5-11) to Pete's music but only have a few very old vinyl lps with songs mostly geared to kids. They are great, but there's much more to Pete. What would you recommend to a school with a limited budget if you could only buy one or two of Pete's recordings?

I'd suggest either of two double concert albums:

"We Shall Overcome: The Complete Carnegie Hall Concert 1963"

or

"Singalong, Sanders Theater, 1980."

I would suggest the two CD set of his live Carnegie Hall performance. Forty songs with sing-alongs,stories etc. "We Shall Overcome" is the title.

Two in agreement. Sounds like a winner.

I've had the We Shall Overcome LP since 1964, when he did a similar concert in Manchester. One of the few I've kept that long. I should probably upgrade to the double CD though. Count one more vote.

By the way the paper this morning reported that Pete has treatable Lyme disease. Here's hoping that returned banjo can surround Lyme disease and force IT to surrender.

Great thread A A W.

I'd strongly suggest to anyone who's not aware just how skilled a banjoist Pete is to get "Goofing Off Suite". Listen to his picking on "Blue Skies", and try to remember that he did this in the very early fifties. Some picker!

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!)

I don't know. I'd have to suggest that best place to start with Mr. Seeger is with the Weavers. I still think that he was best as a team player. The weavers live at Carnegie Hall has such a potent sense of humor that I think he lost a bit in his solo efforts. Not that I don't like him solo of course.

"We Shall Overcome" is quite political. The "Singalong-Sanders concert" is less so. For the age group I would also suggest "Family concert" and "Birds, Beasts Bugs and fishes" The latter is two old LPs combined on one CD

Thanks- these all sound great! I'm going to look for "We Shall Overcome" and if I can't find it locally, I'll check in at Amazon and support the Mudcat all at the same time!

There's no better way to teach history than with the songs and ballads of a given era. They are documents handed down in the words of the people who were there at the time. They are at least as accurate as history books. Pete did some wonderful ones.
