DD Juke Box V2.0: Kisses Sweeter than Wine- The Weavers & Pete Seeger
« Reply #814 on: December 20, 2014, 03:39:57 AM »
From the Weavers.  This Vanguard Record was one we had when I was a kid, and I listened to it many times.  You'll recognize the Voice of the Lead Singer for the Weavers, Pete Seeger.  This was recorded in 1951.  Pete was targeted by the Anti-Communist Purge of Joe McCarthy in the mid-1950s.  His life's work spanned the time of the Industrial Era.  He was a CHAMPION of the Working Man.

Quote from: Wiki
The McCarthy Era

In the 1950s and, indeed, consistently throughout his life, Seeger continued his support of civil and labor rights, racial equality, international understanding, and anti-militarism (all of which had characterized the Wallace campaign) and he continued to believe that songs could help people achieve these goals. With the ever-growing revelations of Joseph Stalin's atrocities and the Hungarian Revolution of 1956, however, he became increasingly disillusioned with Soviet Communism. He left the CPUSA in 1949 but remained friends with some who did not leave it, though he argued with them about it.[48][49]

On August 18, 1955, Seeger was subpoenaed to testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC). Alone among the many witnesses after the 1950 conviction and imprisonment of the Hollywood Ten for contempt of Congress, Seeger refused to plead the Fifth Amendment (which would have asserted that his testimony might be self incriminating) and instead, as the Hollywood Ten had done, refused to name personal and political associations on the grounds that this would violate his First Amendment rights: "I am not going to answer any questions as to my association, my philosophical or religious beliefs or my political beliefs, or how I voted in any election, or any of these private affairs. I think these are very improper questions for any American to be asked, especially under such compulsion as this."[50][51] Seeger's refusal to answer questions that violated his fundamental Constitutional rights led to a March 26, 1957, indictment for contempt of Congress; for some years, he had to keep the federal government apprised of where he was going any time he left the Southern District of New York. He was convicted in a jury trial of contempt of Congress in March 1961, and sentenced to ten 1-year terms in jail (to be served simultaneously), but in May 1962 an appeals court ruled the indictment to be flawed and overturned his conviction.[52][53]

In 1960, the San Diego school board told him that he could not play a scheduled concert at a high school unless he signed an oath pledging that the concert would not be used to promote a communist agenda or an overthrow of the government. Seeger refused, and the American Civil Liberties Union obtained an injunction against the school district, allowing the concert to go on as scheduled. Almost 50 years later, in February 2009, the San Diego School District officially extended an apology to Seeger for the actions of their predecessors.[54]

Pete died in January of 2014 at the age of 95.  He was born in 1919, so in the depths of the Great Depression in 1934 he was 15 years old.  By the time he died this year, Pete was pretty deaf and he could no longer sing, but right up to the Occupy Movement in Zucchini Park, Pete made it there too.



Pete Seeger was a HERO.

DD Juke Box V2.0: Turn, Turn, Turn- Pete Seeger
« Reply #815 on: December 20, 2014, 03:51:53 AM »
Pete wrote this one, adapted from Ecclesiastes.  Recorded by the Byrds and many others since.

This version recorded in 2010, when Pete was 89 years old.

DD Juke Box V2.0: If I Had a Hammer- Pete Seeger
« Reply #816 on: December 20, 2014, 03:59:46 AM »
I don't want to leave this belated Requiem for Pete with him in his dotage.

Here he is in his prime, performing "If I Had a Hammer" in 1956, right when he was under attack by the House Un-American Activities Committee of Joe McCarthy.

Yea, Pete wrote this one too.

Without question.

About Pete Seeger, I am reminded of Lillian Hellman, playwright and target of HUAC, who famously stated, "I cannot and will not cut my conscience to fit this year's fashions."

Many parallels between the Red Scare days and the War On Terror™.

Re: DD Juke Box V2.0 - Joe in 1970 live

Joe was playing at a nearby college when i was about 17 in the Bay area, and I didn't have a ticket. I had heard his songs and really wanted to see him perform. Eventually I was able to sneak in and watch the show. I was dumbfounded! I had never seen anyone performing with that antics the Joe was famous for. I loved the concert.....this is about the time I saw him. R.I.P.........totally one of a kind!
