Holly Near, Arlo Guthrie, Ronnie Gilbert, and Pete Seeger are reunited in this historical 1984 live recording, expanded to two CDs and containing 26 songs and wonderful storytelling.
When the original recording was released on vinyl, the out-takes were stored away on tape in a vault. So when Holly got ready to reissue the recording as a CD (Appleseed Recordings, 2001), she remembered all the songs and stage banter that hadn't fit on to the original LP and decided they would be a great addition as a beautiful slice of history, that is also powerful and contemporary.
Here, Pete and Ronnie are at their spectacular best. Holly and Arlo, singing with their mentors, bring great humor and tenderness.
