Product Description

Featured here in a rare filmed 1963 concert performance, Pete Seeger had been blacklisted and barred from American television, and left the persecution of his homeland and embarked on a 10 month world tour. One of his first stops was Australia where he was welcomed with open arms and sold-out performances. This DVD not only presents a full concert filmed in Melbourne but also includes 55 minutes of bonus footage from various other Australian television appearances. Witness how one man, armed only with a banjo, a guitar and the power of song, captures the hearts and minds of a nation. Over three hours of rare performance and interview footage. Songs include: If I Had A Hammer, Down By The Riverside, The Bells Of Rhymney, Goodnight Irene, A Hard Rain s A-Gonna Fall, Michael, Row The Boat Ashore, Skip To My Lou, The Wild Rover, Woody Guthrie Medley, Highland Laddie, Kum Ba Ya, Way Out There, Living In The Country, Windy Old Weather... and many more

5.0 out of 5 stars Hero 10 May 2010
Having been blacklisted in the USA in the early 60s for being 'controversial', this DVD takes footage from his tour of Australia as he tried to continue earning a living abroad. Filmed in black and white, this is as authentic as you will get. You can't help but smile watching the enthusiasm Seeger puts into every word, interlaced with close-ups of the audience - oh how hair styles have changed!! Seeger comes across as endearing as he is outspoken and this rare footage is both entertaining and educational, reminding us of the reality of the 60s - witness to some of the best popular music in history at a time of social unrest

5.0 out of 5 stars Pete in OZ 26 July 2011
Verified Purchase
Being a long time admirer of Pete Seeger it was great to be able to delve back in time and see the master at work singing entertaining and teaching during his Australia tour. I would recommend this to anyone interested in folk music. I have never ever seen someone swing an axe on stage while singing a negro work song to demonstrate how the work was carried out to the rhythm of a beat

1.0 out of 5 stars Beware quality 5 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
The first track at least of my copy had no audio (message "audio not available"). Watching it as a silent film is rather pointless. A shame, as Seeger is indeed one of the greats.
