Which Side Are You On?
Catalogue Number: ACRCD167
In a career that now spans over 50 years, Pete Seeger has never compromised his music for fashion. Always overtly political and considered more than to be anti-establishment, he was a major influence on Bob Dylan and emerging folk/ rock music as well as being instrumental in the acceptance of the blues in mainstream music. The 18 titles offered here epitomise the roots of protest music. Seeger is one of the main stays of American protest/folk music alongside Woody Guthrie. His importance and influence can be seen from Bruce Springsteen’s new album- We shall Overcome- The Seeger Sessions which pays tribute to him.
