If there is any one person in the twentieth century whose music is synonymous with the spiritual practice of justice, it is Pete Seeger. "Songs won't save the planet," he once said, "but then neither will books or speeches. Songs are sneaky things; they can slip across borders." And into hearts. They can set the conscience on fire and spur individuals to stand up for what is right.
Where Have All the Flowers Gone: The Songs of Pete Seeger features the best of his folk ballads performed by such artists as Bruce Springsteen, Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, Judy Collins, Tom Paxton, Donovan, and many others. Practice justice by listening to "We Shall Overcome," "If I Had a Hammer," "Where Have All the Flowers Gone," "One Grain of Sand," and "Turn Turn Turn."
