“Pete Seeger and percussionist/producer Haynes present one of the most original and inspired audiobooks of the last decade . . . Seeger’s words are blended with a variety of world music in what amounts to an unforgettable and groundbreaking listen.” —Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
“VERDICT: An especially interesting and lovely experiment, this program deserves to be heard.” —Library Journal, Starred Review, Best Media 2013/Best Audio
“Producer Jeff Haynes has combined the elements with care, incorporating interesting music–from bluegrass to Celtic to African–that enhances without getting in the way of Seeger’s marvelous reminiscences . . . Be forewarned that listening will make you smile so much that your face will hurt. Listen anyway. You’ll love every moment.”
