Synopsis

Album Description
These are the songs Pete Seeger sang for America, songs every school child and summer camp attendee learned to sing and now sing with their children and grandchildren. The five-volume American Favorite Ballads (issued 1957 to 1962) is a cornerstone of Seeger's work with Folkways Records. This CD concludes this reissue series of digitally remastered recordings, including not only the complete original set but many more songs from other Seeger albums of the same era, including the 1954 Frontier Ballads collection, which makes up most of this volume. 36-page booklet, 29 tracks, 67 minutes!

CD Reviews

Strong finish to this set.

(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a strong finish to the anthology of Seeger's Folkways recordings. As with all of Smithsonian Folkways releases, it includes detailed liner notes and thoughtful selection. I would have liked for the discographical information about the original releases to be a bit clearer. Overall, though, this 5-volume set is the best selected and documented collection of Pete's stunning and influential recordings. Pete enjoyed more attention and success later, too, but these are the recordings that propelled the folk explosion and they have lost none of their power."
