Rainbow Race/Now/Young Vs. Old
3 of the finest Original LPs from the Legendary Folk Activist! First Time On CD!!
The figure of Pete Seeger towers over 20th and 21st century music. Revered as a
songwriter, folklorist and activist his fingerprints are to be found over a vast
array of folk and contemporary culture. Wise, kind, provocative, satirical and
acerbic his commentaries and performances have lead to his blacklisting in one
decade and to his exaltation by pop icons in another. Chronicled here are three of
his finest albums, 1968’s Now, 1969’s Young Vs. Old and 1971’s Rainbow Race along
with a previously banned 1970 single in its first ever official release.
Deluxe collector’s edition remastered from the original Columbia Records tapes and presented with exclusive liner notes and rare photos.
