We gave it an A+

Back when today’s parents were tykes, Pete Seeger was already busy introducing them to the world of song with Children’s Concert at Town Hall. In this wonderful 1962 performance, the troubadour enthusiastically presents a folk-music primer, accompanying himself on five-string banjo and guitar. Mixing Woody Guthrie and Leadbelly originals with spirituals, old English ballads, traditional American labor tunes, and much more, Seeger enthralls his young audience and, most likely, anyone who hears this magical record.
