The Weavers Reunion At Carnegie Hall 1963 on 200g LP
Sourced from the Original Master 3 Track Tape & Pressed on 200g Vinyl at Quality Record Pressings!
Recorded on location at Carnegie Hall on May 2-3, 1963 at two historic concerts celebrating the 15th anniversary of folk legends The Weavers featuring Bernie Krause, Frank Hamilton, Pete Seeger, Erik Darling, Ronnie Gilbert, Lee Hays and Fred Hellerman.
The Weavers are, some profess, the greatest folk group of the past century. They fostered the folk boom of the late 1950s and early 1960s, yet as All Music Guide notes, others scored with their songs, notably Peter, Paul and Mary, who took the group's early song "If I Had a Hammer" into the Top 10.
The group reclaimed that song and others, such as "Wimoweh" (which was pilfered by the Tokens as "The Lion Sleeps Tonight"), and at their reunion performed their own old hits such as "Goodnight Irene." Numerous lead singers make the concert sound more like a folk festival than a group performance, but this record remains a very spirited and passionate affair. An audiophile classic now on 200g vinyl courtesy of Analogue Productions!
