Having reached his 60s, Seeger
asked Folkways to document a typical concert "before my voice, memory, and sense of rhythm and pitch were too far gone." What they got is this 25-track, two-record boxed set containing the amazing variety and depth of Seeger
's repertoire, from the traditional "John Henry" to the African lullaby/story "Abiyoyo" to Charlie King
's anti-nuke tune "Acres of Clams." But what most impresses is Seeger
's rapport with an audience that is willing and able to sing along on every song.
