Amazing collection of rare political songs
11/02/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This 10 CD set includes some very rare political songs. Many can be considered "folk songs" although there are also some rarities like classical-oriented Communist Party songs. If one is interested in the Almanac Singers, the early recordings of Josh White, or Peekskill, this is a must have. The book which accompanies the collection is very informative. I only give the collection 4 stars instead of 5 since there are some songs which do not hold up so well after so many years, but overall this is fantastic compilation."
