Pete Seeger had a long and productive career as a folk song leader and social activist.

In 1938, he settled in New York City and eventually met Alan Lomax, Woody Guthrie, Aunt Molly Jackson, Lead Belly and others. Many of this group of musicians eventually formed the Almanac Singers in late 1940. The group performed for gatherings, picket lines, and any place they could lend their voices ...

Product Description


Pete Seeger, who began recording in the early 1940s, is perhaps the most influential figure in the American folk revival, a walking repository of song who's had an immense influence in popularizing folk music with mainstream audiences. The 2 CD We Shall Overcome is an expanded version of a classic 1963 live album that offers an excellent example of Seeger's activist passion and good-humored humanity. This expanded edition contains the entire 40-song concert, making it almost three times longer than the original vinyl incarnation. The typically eclectic and heartfelt program, encompassing civil-rights anthems and anti-war pleas, along with tunes from England, Russia, Brazil, and the Caribbean, provides an excellent introduction to the artist. --Scott Schinder

5.0 out of 5 stars An historic recording 8 Feb 2010
By Himself
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The original LP was the second one I bought and I was surprised to find out late last year that this full version of the concert had been available for 20 years! Now that I have listened to the full version a few times, I find it has even more impact than the original the comments and even the audience noises draw you into the occasion - it's a joyful record and it's just as well the world can't hear me singing along to it in my car!

5.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate Pete Seeger 1 Aug 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Fantastic music and radical thinking at that time. Best Pete Seeger album, in my humble opinion. All the family can enjoy it, on many levels. What a great man and musician at his best. If you heard this when it came out (which I did as a toddler), you will be transported back to and reminded of a time when people power did make the change.

Yesterday, the world woke up to the news that Pete Seeger had died. He was a truly great man and a true American patriot who had a deep love for his flawed homeland, and wanted it to be a fairer, more just nation. This historic live recording of his 1963 concert in Carnegie Hall is perhaps the very best proof of that. He clearly had the audience eating out of his hand, and I'm guessing that everyone there that evening caught a glimpse of what could be.....Just listening not only to the music, but also to Pete's conversation with his audience is to be infected by his warm humanity and sense of justice for all. If you admire Pete Seeger, and would like his work to live on in your memory, do download this from the Amazon MP3 page. I did, and I promise, you won't be disappointed!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Performance 1 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
All I can say is I was excited with the album. Many of the live versions of his old songs sound better here as you can hear the audience joining in on parts, making these versions sound livelier and more atmospheric.He also turned in good versions of songs from other artists.

5.0 out of 5 stars There's room for this in everyone's CD case 2 Mar 2002
By Catherine S. Vodrey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Pete Seeger is a mirror: you see yourself in him. If you're a child, you latch onto his easygoing voice and the humor evident in tunes like "A Little Brand New Baby" and "Little Boxes." If you're a teenager, you cling to the drama in "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall" and "Who Killed Norma Jean?" If you're an adult--younger or elderly--you can appreciate the joy in life evinced by Seeger on every song on the album. It brings tears to my eyes nearly every time I listen to "Tshotsholosa," a Rhodesian road worker's song. Seeger's gift is to make every song a proclamation of the beauty of life and the wonder of other people. He is endlessly curious and polymathic--songs on this album include the traditional and the new, the English and the Portuguese, the German and the Spanish, the despairing and the overjoyed. Think of this album as a wistfully lovely time capsule in the few months before the 1960s finally exploded. It was recorded just five months before the assassination of JFK (one of Seeger's Harvard classmates) and just five years before the assassinations of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Bobby Kennedy. It simultaneously bears the innocent stamp of the 1950s without that decade's plastic falsity--and the righteous indignation of the 1960s without the tang of defeat that accompanied so many other things from that era.

5.0 out of 5 stars Time Capsual 27 Dec 2000
By Ben Fitzgerald - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Wow. 1963. Pete Seeger. According to "Music Hound's Guide to Folk", Seeger was in his prime when he performed this concert at Carnegie Hall. I'll say he was. He finds the emotion and fun in every song he sings and lets his voice soar. If he hasn't completely blown you away before, this recording will. This is the entire un-cut concert with audience applause, Pete's introductions (and mistakes), and it runs for over 2 hours. It's not the same as being there but it's pretty darn close. Listen to it on the best system you can find, make your self comfortable and transport back in time to 1963. This is why Pete Seeger is the Father of modern Folk.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Folk Singer Ever! 9 April 2000
By "oldtimerocker" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Pete Seeger is the most essential folk artist ever. This album proves that. It starts off with Seeger and his banjo, but moves quickly to the songs that made him popular. He also does a few Bob Dylan tunes, including a wonderful version of "A Hard Rain's A Gonna Fall." The second disc includes many familiar songs, including "This Land Is Your Land," "We Shall Overcome," and his signature song "Guantanamera." It also includes a number of introductions and conversation with the audience. The original album only had a small portion of this concert. Having the whole show enables a person to hear the magic. Simply one of the best folk albums ever released.

5.0 out of 5 stars The man introduced We Shall Overcome to the civil right movt 23 Aug 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This may be one of the most influential albums of the past two or three generations. Pete introduced "We Shall Overcome" to the civil rights movement. How can anyone top the impact of that song on our sensiblities ? He has always been modest about fame, being more interested in the message of the music in helping make a better world. And the other songs of the peace movement. Turn Turn Turn, Where have All the Flowers Gone?, and so many others that many of us know, but few know that he penned. He influenced Bob Dylan, The Byrds, Phil Ochs, Tom Paxton, and so many others. It is hard to underestimate the impact of this fine person no matter what his flaws might be. He has a way of seducing an audience with music of the people and then when they are comfortable, he slips in the message of struggle and change and the importance of making an effort. This is Pete's great achievement and this album is the essence of the 60's and so much that was good about the era. He is the good father to all of us and teaches dignity and honor. Did you know he was blacklisted by McCarthy? That he would not testify against his fellow artists? What a night that must have been at Carnegie Hall in 1963.

5.0 out of 5 stars Humanity's songster 8 Jan 2007
By Andrew R. Weiss - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Back in the mid-1950's I attended a summer camp in New Hampshire for 5 years. For most of those years, sometime in the middle of the summer a tall, lanky redhead came striding up the camp's dirt road with two instrument cases slung across his back. He'd stay with us for 10 days or so, and every night we'd meet in the rec hall or by the lake and he'd teach us songs and sing with us. There was a small group of us who played instruments like guitar or (in my case, at that point) mandolin, and he'd meet with us and teach us. All I knew about him was that his name was Pete, that he had an amazing and inspiring, trumpet-like voice, infectious optimism and charisma, and that we all sang alot better when we was there than when he wasn't.

I had no idea who Pete was, what his last name was, or anything more about him until my 4th year at camp, when my counselor, who was a banjo player, filled me in (and refused to play in front of Pete because he was embarrassed). "The Weavers at Carnegie Hall" had just come out, and I got that album and lo and behold, most of those songs were ones we'd learned from Pete and there was that amazing voice, that banjo, the driving rhythms, and the charismatic presence bringing people together to sing better than they ever knew they could. Pete was blacklisted then, and made his living going from schools to colleges to summer camps; there were many kids like me who grew up with Pete's warm and human influence.

Any recording of a Pete Seeger concert will give you an inkling of what it was like to be with him, but this one is special -- it's complete, it's long, it's very human, and it catches Pete at the height of the folk music revival and before the crucible of the late-1960's. It's all here. I suspect you'll find yourself singing along, stamping your feet, and at the end feeling a lot better about yourself, more committed to making life better for yourself and others, and more optimistic about this world. That's the hallmark of Pete's humanity. He wanted people to be involved, he disliked passive media like TV and recordings, and he played and inspired his audiences like an extension of his beloved banjo and guitar.

Yes, Pete was a member of the Communist Party from 1941 to 1949, but whether his songs after 1949 reflect, or were driven by, his affiliation (as another reviewer suggests) is, I believe, incorrect. Pete's songs were always guided much more by his native optimism, his love of people and the planet, his belief that songs and singing can somehow make a difference, his curiosity and openness, his response to the events around him (which actually made him more radical as he (and we) progressed through the 60's and 70's) and, yes, his open-hearted humanity.

No matter what your affiliation, and even if you've never heard a folk-song record in your life, you deserve to hear this one and let your spirit soar.
