“At 89”

2008, Appleseed Recordings

Pete Seeger’s “At 89” presents new recordings by the inspirational artist and his personal reflections from a life’s work still in progress. For Seeger fans — and newcomers — it is all that you would expect: a wonderful tribute to a man whose principled life spans almost nine decades.

Seeger wrote many new songs like “Little Fat Baby” and “Arrange & Re-Arrange” that convey the struggles he has been a part of and the passing of the torch to younger generations.

Then there are some old favorites: “Waist Deep in the Big Muddy” and “How Are We Gonna Save Tomorrow?”

Listening to Seeger’s reflections before listening to the music gives us more insight into the man’s extraordinary social convictions that molded the words to so many of his songs.

There are 32 selections on this stimulating tribute to Seeger’s talent. Don’t miss out on this one.

While listening to this CD a thought came to me. Pete has shared that robust voice with all the world and it’s out there taking up its rightful space among the people! Rep. Barbara Lee of California has agreed to carry the nomination of Pete Seeger for the Nobel Peace Prize. For more information go to: www.nobelprize4pete.org.
