PETE SEEGER-CLEARWATER CLASSICS: Whether warbling political protests or children's nursery rhymes, the tireless PETE SEEGER has probably taught more songs to more people than any other modern folk artist over his seven decade career. along with TURN TURN TURN, his adaption of a Bible verse with which THE BYRDS helped invent "folk-rock". Many tracks here are enthusiastic concert recordings that demonstrate what SEEGER does best, namely prefacing numbers with a bit of history and encouraging audience participation on THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND, JOHN HENRY, MICHAEL, ROW THE BOAT ASHORE and others you probably have known the words to since grade school.
