4.0 out of 5 stars Great collection of great songs, 9 Jun 2006
This review is from: Pete Seeger's Greatest Hits (Audio CD)
Some people, including Seeger himself, claim that Seeger never had any hits. Where Have All The Flowers gone was a hit for Peter, Paul And Mary, Turn Turn Turn was a hit for The Byrds and Wimoweh was a hit for The Weavers.

Pete Seeger got a single in the top ten chart only one time. That song was Little Boxes which is the opening number for this collection.

Maybe these songs never were 'hits' but they are a fine collection of folk songs, old and new. This album was originally published in the late sixties and the CD version has a couple of extra tracks.

But I still recommend that you start your Pete Seeger collection somewhere else. American Favorite Ballads 1-4 are fine collections of old American folk music. Anyone of them is more interesting than this collection. As for Seeger's political songs I recommed Smithsonian Folkways' If I Had A Hammer - Songs of Hope Struggle.
