various artists
where have all the flowers gone: the songs of pete seeger
label: appleseed/red house
genre: roots/country/blues
file under: worthwhile tributes

the dodgy business of tributes continues unabated with where have
all the flowers gone, a two-disc set of pete seeger songs performed
by a wide array of notable artists. the difficulty in covering an
eminent folk prototype like seeger is that if you disturb his
simplicity you miss his point. seeger sang his songs with
elementary tools of the trade: a banjo or an acoustic guitar and a
voice. but many of the artists here-and the roster is a luminous
one, including bruce springsteen, the indigo girls, ani difranco,
and nancy griffith-seem eager to dress seeger's songs in fancy
clothes. on the title track, for example, tommy sands and dolores
keane diddle with a lush-and admittedly beautiful-classical/new age
arrangement, but in doing so they obscure the immense sadness of
seeger's simple sentiment. ditto for jackson browne and bonnie
raitt, who reggae-fy his "kisses sweeter than wine." elsewhere,
though, guitarists martin simpson ("living in the country") and
roger mcguinn ("bells of rhymney") beautify seeger's simple string
plucking, while john gorka ("the water is wide") and greg brown
("sailing down my golden river") add depth in the vocal department.
the boss, by the way, does a terrific, haunting reading of "we
shall overcome." in the end, though, the variety here prevents
flowers from entertaining throughout. still, no matter how you
slice 'em-from guy davis's raw blues on "false from true" to sweet
honey in the rock's lush spiritual "step by step," seeger's songs
remain well worthwhile musical and cultural artifacts. -bob gulla
