CD Reviews

One of my All-Time Favorites!
J. J. Allore | 01/28/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is just a gorgeous Christmas album. Seeger's folk style blends perfectly with both the traditional carols like "The First Noel" as well as the spirituals such as "Twelve Gates to the City." (Not to mention the upbeat "Masters in this Hall" - my personal favorite.) For Seeger fans or anyone looking for an old-fashioned alternative to the almost inescapable pop diva/boy band/insert-current-trend-here CDs out there, this is a must-have!"
Banjo Christmas Classics...
J. J. Allore | 12/11/1998
(3 out of 5 stars)

"It's an odd experience to hear Pete Seeger--with his unrefined, though charming, voice and his trademark banjo accompaniment--belting out "Lo How a Rose E'er Blooming." Some of these songs sound gentle and vulnerable; others just don't work as well. It's not a bad album, especially for folk fans, but it's not one I'll keep in the CD player for more than a day out of the Christmas season, either."
