American Industrial Ballads album for sale Product Description



American Industrial Ballads album for sale by Pete Seeger was released Feb 14, 2008 on the Not Now Music label. A collection of 24 songs which were written and sung as a result of the great industrialization of America over the last 140 years. American Industrial Ballads CD music Includes liner notes and a new introduction by Irwin Silber. Pete Seeger presents a history of the Industrial Revolution and its impact on working people on American Industrial Ballads, a collection of 24 songs (over half of them shorter than two minutes each) sequenced in chronological order by date of composition, to the extent that this can be determined, from the early-1800s appearance of "Peg and Awl," in which a worker struggles to keep up with a machine, to songs written by Woody Guthrie and Les Rice in the 1940s.

As the album goes on, the workers' complaints about ill treatment and low pay become more extreme, and eventually the need for unions to represent them seems overwhelming. Even then, the bosses respond with violence, as Seeger documents in such songs as Jim Garland's "The Death of Harry Simms" and Della Mae Graham's "Ballad of Barney Graham," both true stories of murdered union men.   ...See Full Description
