Sing Out America!: The Best of Pete Seeger

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
Pete Seeger's life's work was giving America back its folk music, but he wasn't after a stylish facsimile of American folk. He wanted a folk music with social utility, a folk music that lived and breathed with the times, but also a folk music that pushed betterment and change, and he never wavered from these standards throughout his long career.
