Synopsis

Album Description
Brilliantly captures the exhilaration of Seeger's concert experience. With extraordinary talent, Seeger addresses salient social issues--his trademark for over 50 years--in song: If I Had a Hammer, Greensleeves, and We Shall Not be Moved. The complete concert of 41 songs was recorded live in Sanders Theatre at Harvard University and illuminates the skill of a master performer and the dedication of an enduring political activist. "...a reminder of the virtues and aesthetics that make [folk music] such an enduring medium." -- Dirty Linen

The Best
09/07/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Pete is a gift to us, one that will be certainly lost when he is gone. I got to see Pete and Arlo in concert and it was the best concert I've been to (including rock/pop stuff). This album is consumate Pete because he gets the crowd singing like a choir. There is no finer Seeger album than this. Pete's autographed picture hangs in my office and it is a treasure as is he."
Classic Pete love affair with audience

"I was sitting in the front row at Sanders Theater on that January night in 1980. Listening to this album puts me (and you) right back in that seat. This is Pete at his best - sharing his love of music and story with a warm and receptive audience in a great and intimate theater. Forty one songs exactly as they were performed in concert - no editing, no overdubs, no audio effects, no reordering. Just Pete with his acoustic instruments in a large "living room" of ordinary voices making great music. If you ever found yourself wishing you could go back in time to a Pete Seeger concert during his hey day, this is for you."
