As far as The Essential is concerned, better sense has thankfully prevailed eight years down the line. There are 36 tracks across two discs on the new version, all of them selected from the series of excellent Seeger albums released on Columbia in the decade to 1971. Inevitably, there is some overlap with Greatest Hits, but there's greater depth to this product, which kicks off with "Last Train to Nuremberg" and concludes with "My Dirty Stream".

The Essential Pete Seeger is an odd compilation. Pete Seeger usually recorded for Folkways and Columbia, but this collection, recorded between 1950 and 1974, comes from Vanguard's vaults. Many of the songs, including "The Bells of Rhymney," "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?," and "Wimoweh," have long been associated with either Seeger or his group, the Weavers. He's also frequently performed numbers like "Come All Ye Fair and Tender Ladies," "I Shall Not Be Moved," and "Oh What a Beautiful City
