subject: [ig-news] pete seeger tribute cd review

hey everyone,

i found this on cnn news - i think it comes from a
detroit paper originally...

- -sherlyn

various artists ''where have all the flowers gone: the songs of
        pete seeger'' (appleseed/red house)
4 stars
unlike pop performers, the great folk singers win their renown
because they write great songs -- which is certainly the case
with pete seeger. more importantly, seeger wrote the kind of
songs that can be sung by anyone. this is proven throughout
this two-cd, 39-song collection, which features always-credible
and often-wonderful covers by the likes of bruce springsteen,
ani difranco, donovan, bruce cockburn, studs terkel, indigo
girls, judy collins, jackson browne, bonnie raitt, and peter,
paul & mary. better yet, seeger is alive and part of this
tribute in more than just spirit, appearing in an old recording
of the weavers' ''wimoweh'' and closing the set with the
appropriate ''and still i am searching.''

"and the best ones were the ones i got to keep as i grew strong,
and the days that opened up until my whole life could belong.
it's like getting the answers, when i don't need them anymore...
i remember..."         - dar williams, "the blessings"
