Anyone into Pete? Pretty much a definitive collection released on May 3....it's not cheap, but the book is a tome in itself

Quote
Coming May 2019, Pete Seeger The Smithsonian Folkways Collection is a career-spanning anthology of one of America’s most quintessential, celebrated, and influential musicians. Featuring classic recordings, 20 previously unreleased tracks, historic live performances, and special collaborations, this set encompasses over 60 years of Pete’s Folkways catalog, released on the occasion of his 100th birthday.

He was a singer, a rebel, and a voice of the people. With a banjo and a selfless dedication to justice and the transformative power of music, he inspired all of humanity to question the status quo, to sing out and speak up against oppression wherever they witnessed it. His body of work reflects a deep reverence for the earth and all of those who walk on it; you can hear it in his voice and in the voices of the thousands of people who sang and continue to sing with him every day.

This collection features a large-format 200-page book with hundreds of pages of essays, commentary, photographs, history, and liner notes, alongside 6 CDs of classic and unreleased music pulled from throughout Seeger’s career.

I should do this.

We were in upstate NY, near Woodstock/Bethel for a festival in 1998. We saw on the local news that then-79 year old Woodstock resident Pete Seeger was holding a protest outside a Wal-Mart, McDonald's, or something.  I think he was picketing, by himself, against their labor practices.  He really walked the walk.  I wish we had driven over to say hi, and bring him a cup of coffee.

This is just a hopeful punt, but I suspect this might be cheaper 6 months down the line.  I hope so, anyway.
