Darling Corey/Goofing-Off Suite

Darling Corey/Goofing-Off Suite

by Pete Seeger
     
 
This excellent pairing of two EPs originally released in the '50s showcases both Seeger's musicological interests and his good humor. Darling Corey features traditional tunes, while Goofing-Off Suite is a more eclectic mix of old and new, with the wonderful "Chorale from Beethoven's Symphony No. 9" for banjo and whistler.
