I can't in all good conscience, tell you I can recall the time I heard a recording so joyfully stream-of-conscious as At 89. If I had to guess it was probably Pete's last record, 'cos that's what Pete does: He brings you to his stream for a drink, a frolic, and a singalong.
Insightfully sequenced by guitarist/producer David Bernz, these 32 organic tracks, or should I stay steps towards Seeger's good, wise stream, focus not so much on the ageless voice and musicianship, but on his inexhaustible vitality and spirit. Always present as our true connection to Indra's net, Seeger soothes, challenges, celebrates, empowers and enlightens simply by getting us to sing. Imagine that as a global and personal diplomacy then lend your voice to the gathering down by the crystal clear stream.
If you'll excuse my fool's errand of picking a few highlights from a life full of them, here goes: False From True, The Water Is Wide, Throw Away That Shad Net, When I Was Most Beautiful, Waist Deep In The Big Muddy and an Arabic reworking of the Weavers' old fave Tzena Tzena Tzena.
