Together in Concert DBL Album on CD

'It took only two phone calls to get Pete Seeger and Arlo Guthrie to agree to perform together in concert. I rang Pete. 'Listen, how about you and Arlo doing some concerts together?' Pete didn't hesitate, 'Sure,' he quickly replied. I then dialed Arlo. 'Say, Arlo, how about you and Pete doing some concerts together?' His reply was as prompt as Pete's. So concerts were lined up for New York, Chicago, Montreal, Boston, Denver and Tanglewood. 'Now the big problem was to get Pete and Arlo to meet, to decide on a program and to rehearse. Arlo hates to travel beyond the border of Berkshire County in Massachusetts and Pete is traveling all over the country doing benefits. Luckily, just one week before the first concert in Carnegie Hall, Arlo escaped from his farm and found his way to Pete's place in Beacon, New York. They spent a couple of hours together, decided on a program, ran through a couple of songs...and they were ready. 'Pete Seeger had been singing with a Guthrie for some 35 years. Back in 1940, Woody Guthrie and Pete traveled cross country singing their way from state to state, and until the early 1950s Woody and Pete often shared singing in a union hall or at a political rally. In the mid-1960s, as Arlo became a 'professional' singer, he was also beginning to share the same platform or concert hall with Pete, as they both participated at peace demonstrations or sang for the Farm Workers Union. The Seeger-Guthrie Union keeps going. 'There is no gap in the two generations of singers heard on this record. Rather, the music and songs express a continuity of understanding and a reflection of the world as it is and has been. The audience at these concerts- those who were lucky enough to get tickets- spanned several generations: grandfathers and grandmothers with their grandchildren, workers and students, young and old. A New York reviewer perhaps best summed up when he wrote,'It is another time, but the need for the Seegers and Guthries of whatever generation remains.' -Harold Leventhal (Sometime manager of Pete, Arlo and Woody)
