Dirty Linen - 12/99-1/00, p.91
"...brings the socio-political history of the 20th century to life....Some songs are serious, some are funny - but all are thought provoking....This recording should be required listening in every high school and college across the country."

By the '60s, Pete Seeger was as well known--possibly even more well known--for his outspoken social activism as he was for his remarkable performing skills and the depth of his knowledge as a historian and ethnomusicologist. This 23-track anthology, culled from live and studio recordings, touches on all of these aspects. Archiving anthems from the union organization, civil rights and anti-war movements alongside songs concerning specific historical events such as the sinking of the Titanic and the Reuben James. Among the highlights is the savage "Waist Deep in the Big Muddy," one of Seeger's most controversial songs, a Vietnam allegory based on a '40s incident in which a foot soldier drowned when his commanding officer forced him to walk in water without knowing how deep it was. The extensive liner notes place these songs in their proper historical context.
