Which Side Are You On -- Pete Seeger
In the mountains of Kentucky in 1931, the coal miners of Harlan County went on strike. Officers hired by the mining company roamed the countryside hunting for the union leaders. The independent coal miners fought back gallantly against the hired company deputies and blood was spilled on both sides. "Which Side Are You On," was written by Florence Reece, the wife of Sam Reece, a union leader who had escaped into the Kentucky mountains for safety. Class warfare continues in the United States and in most nations throughout the world. Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Lee Hays, and Millard Lampell of the Almanac Singers made this song famous in 1941. - Spadecaller

Pete Seeger - The Titanic (Sub)
Únanse/Join http://www.facebook.com/MetalCreeper The Titanic Disaster: It was on one Monday morning just about one o'clock When that great ship Titanic began to reel and rock People began to scream and cry saying, Lord I'm a-goin to die It was sad when that great ship went down. It was sad, it was sad, it was sad when that great ship went down Husbands and wives, little children lost their lives It was sad when that great ship went down. When that ship left England it was making for the shore The rich refused to associate with the poor So they put the poor below; they were the first to go It was sad when that great ship went down. While they were building they said what they would do We will build a ship that the water can't go through But God with power in hand showed the world that it could not stand It was sad when that great ship went down. Those people on that ship were a long ways from home With friends all around they didn't know that the time had come Death came riding by, sixteen hundred had to die It was sad when that great ship went down. While Paul was sailing, his men all around God told him that not a man should drown If you trust in me and obey I will save you all today It was sad when that great ship went down. You know it must have been awful with those people on the sea They say that they were singing "Nearer My God to Thee" While some were homeward bound sixteen hundred had to drown, It was sad when that great ship went down.

Ewan MacColl - We are the engineers
Ewan MacColl & Peggy Seeger We Are The Engineers 1971 AUEW1 En soutien au syndicat "Amalgamated Union of Engineering Workers" Paroles : "Two Joined Hands" was our device when our banner first unfurled, Hands that knew the feel of tools and helped to build a world. Two hands became a million hands and fashioned down the years The machines that make the world go round, The ships and planes and the diesel trains, The weaving frames and the building cranes, We are the engineers! We tamed the fire and harnessed metals, learned a thousand skills; Our hands have made the tools men use in factories, mines and mills. Ours the hands that throw the switch that puts the world in gear, That make the plows that turn the soil, The ships and planes and the diesel trains, The weaving frames and the building cranes, We are the engineers! Those who came before us walked a dark and lonely road: Hunger, hurt and poverty, they bore a heavy load. Police and spies at every turn, a world of doubt and fear... But they fought the cruel laws and when The lost the rose to fight again, For the right to work and live like men, They were the engineers! Tracked and hunted throught the years, these men of stalwart hand, Starved and beaten, still they took a brave dtermined stand. Jails and transportation hilks face union pioneers- But they fought the cruel laws and when The lost the rose to fight again, For the right to work and live like men, They were the engineers! We've stamped our feet in the morning queues, known unemployment's toll, Known hands go soft in idleness, the slow death on the dole. The rusty lathe and the silent factory mark the hungry years; And the grass growing green on the shipyard floor, And the endless beat of marching feet And men demanding the right to eat And work as engineers! Our skills were used to fight a war, September '39, To rid the world of fascism our workers did combine. Men and women side by side worked through the angry years, And we built the tools of victory, The bombs and guns and the armoured trains, The tanks and ships and the fighting planes, We are the engineers! Two joined hands in unity have built this world of ours; And they have built our union, too, a tool of workers' power: A mighty, multipurpose tool that cuts and bores and shears; Combining skills of those who build The ships and planes and the diesel trains, The weaving frames and the building cranes, We are the engineers! And we, the youngest engineers, we march to claim our rights; We have learned that nothing's ever won without fight. Every battle fought and won reveals a new frontier, And a world to be won by those who build The ships and planes and the diesel trains, The weaving frames and the building cranes, We are the engineers!

Ewan MacColl & Peggy Seeger:  The Big Hewer.
Ewan MacColl & Peggy Seeger: The Big Hewer -- (Ewan MacColl & Peggy Seeger), 1962. ꜜ ꜜ ꜜ « British coalminers have many stories of an almost superhuman figure who is by a variety of names (Temple, Tempest, Torr, Towers, and in Wales, Isaac Lewis). He is also known as "The Big Hewer", or "The Great Miner". This heroic figure is to the British coalfields what Paul Bunyan was to the logging camps of the United States, what John Henry was to the Negro railway builders. This song, written in 1961 for a documentary radio ballad, incorporates a number of current mining legends told about the Big Hewer » (Ewan MacColl & Peggy Seeger) Ewan MacColl: Vocal Peggy Seeger: Guitar

Miners Lifeguard - Pete Seeger
Miner's Lifeguard From the Album Pete Seeger - The Legend Miner's life is like a sailor's 'Board a ship to cross the wave; Every day his life's in danger, Still he ventures being brave. Watch the rocks, they're falling daily, Careless miners always fail; Keep your hands upon the dollar And your eyes upon the scale(s). CHORUS: Union miners, stand together, Heed no operator's tale; Keep your hands upon the dollar And your eyes upon the scale(s). Soon this trouble will be ended, Union men will have their rights, After many years of bondage, Digging days and digging nights. Then by honest weight we labor, Union miners never fail; Keep your hand upon the dollar And your eyes upon the scale(s). Let no union men be weakened By newspapers' false reports; Be like sailors on the ocean, Trusting in their safe lifeboats. Let your lifeboat be Jehovah Those who trust Him never fail. Keep your hand upon the dollar And your eyes upon the scale(s). You've been docked and docked, my boys, You've been loading two for one; What have you to show for working Since this mining has begun? Overalls, and cans for rockers, In your shanties sleep on rails. Keep your hand upon the dollar And your eyes upon the scale(s). In conclusion, bear in memory, Keep the password in your mind.; God provides for every nation, When in union they combine. Stand like men and linked together, Victory for you will prevail, Keep your hand upon the dollar And your eyes upon the scale(s). NOTES: The oft-repeated warning in the chorus to "keep your eye[s] upon the scale[s]" refers to the coal owners' practice of underweighing the miners' coal cars before the unions succeeded in appointing a union checkweighman. April 11. 2009 I have just received birthday gift from my children. And one of the gifts was - 3 CDs with Pete Seeger - 64 original recordings + some extra!

Spanish civil war song "They shall not pass!" (¡No pasarán!) with English lyrics
¡No pasarán! (They shall not pass!) was a slogan used during the Spanish Civil War, especially during the Siege of Madrid. There are many songs that use this slogan, this one is by Rolando Alarcon. - Artist: Rolando Alarcón Album: Canciones de la Guerra Civil Española Genre: Folk, Nueva Canción, Chilean music Country: Chile Year: 1968 - Letras: Los moros que trajo Franco En madrid quieren entrar Mientras queden milicianos Los moros no pasarán ¡No pasarán! ¡No pasarán! Aunque me tiren el puente Y también la pasarela Me verás pasar el ebro En un barquito de vela ¡No pasarán! ¡No pasarán! Diez mil veces que los tiren Diez mil veces los haremos Tenemos cabeza dura Los del cuerpo de ingenieros ¡No pasarán! ¡No pasarán! En el ebro se han hundido Las banderas italianas Y en los puentes sólo quedan Las que son republicanas ¡No pasarán! ¡No pasarán! - Lyrics: The Moors that Franco brought, Want to enter Madrid As long as one militiaman remains, The Moors will not get through. They shall not pass! They shall not pass! Even if they blast our bridge And also the pontoon, You will see me crossing the Ebro River: In a little sail ship. They shall not pass! They shall not pass! They may blast them ten thousand times Ten thousand times we shall go across them, For we have stubborn engineer corps. They shall not pass! They shall not pass! Italian flags are sunk in Ebro. And on the bridges remain only the republican ones. They shall not pass! (repeat)

Pete Seeger - Last Train to Nuremberg
Vietnam War: My Lai & Lt. William Calley Songs: https://rateyourmusic.com/list/JBrummer/vietnam_war__my_lai_and_lt__william_calley_songs/ Seeger's 1971 anti-war song "Last Train to Nuremberg" (Columbia Records # 4-45398) condemned the My Lai massacre and pointed the finger at several layers of society that had "blood upon" their "hands". Nuremberg refered to the location of the criminal trials that took place after the Second World War. Therefore, in the lyrics, Seeger imagined those responsible for the My Lai atrocities to be together on a train, to face justice for their crimes. Firstly, Seeger named two of the soldiers involved - the well-known William Calley, and Captain Medina (a commanding officer of the platoon in question - is this the only song to mention him)? He faced court-martial for war crimes, but was acquitted in 1971. Seeger then moved on to the politicians, referring to Richard Nixon and "both houses of Congress" - wanting to know "who gave the orders?" and "planned the campaign" (which could have meant either the politicians or the military establishment). Seeger then turned his attention to the military-industrial complex, asking the question: "who manufactured the bullet". Finally, Seeger took his analysis a step further, pointing the finger at all Americans, singing: "Do I see the voters, me and you...Who paid the taxes? Tell me, is that blood upon my hands?". It featured as the opening track on the 1971 album Rainbow Race (Columbia # C 30739). The lyrics and notations appeared in Broadside magazine, # 104, January 1970. "Last train to Nuremberg! All on board! Do I see Lieutenant Calley? Do I see Captain Medina? Do I see Gen'ral Koster and all his crew? Do I see President Nixon? Do I see both houses of Congress? Do I see the voters, me and you? Who held the rifle? Who gave the orders? Who planned the campaign to lay waste the land? Who manufactured the bullet? Who paid the taxes? Tell me, is that blood upon my hands? If five hundred thousand mothers went to Washington And said, 'Bring all of our boys home without delay!' Would the man they came to see, say he was too busy? Would he say he had to watch a football game?"

Peggy Seeger -- As I Walked out One Fair May Morn
Margaret "Peggy" Seeger (born June 17, 1935) is an American folksinger. She is also well known in Britain, where she lived for more than 30 years with her husband, the singer and songwriter Ewan MacColl. In 1958, her UK work permit expired and she was about to be deported. This was narrowly averted by a plan, concocted by MacColl and Seeger, in which she married the folk singer Alex Campbell, in Paris, on January 24, 1959, in what Seeger described as a "hilarious ceremony". This marriage of convenience allowed Seeger to gain British citizenship and continue her relationship with MacColl. MacColl and Seeger were later married (in 1977), following his divorce from Newlove. They remained together until his death in 1989. They had three children: Neill, Calum, and Kitty. They recorded and released several albums together on Folkways Records, along with Seeger's solo albums and other collaborations with the Seeger Family and the Seeger Sisters. The documentary film A Kind of Exile was a profile of Seeger and also featured Ewan MacColl. The film was directed and produced by John Goldschmidt for ATV and shown on ITV in the UK. Together with MacColl, Seeger founded The Critics Group, a "master class" for young singers performing traditional songs or to compose new songs using traditional song structures (or, as MacColl called them, "the techniques of folk creation"). The Critics Group evolved into a performance ensemble seeking to perform satirical songs in a mixture of theatre, comedy and song, which eventually created a series of annual productions called "The Festival of Fools" (named for a traditional British Isles event in which greater freedom of expression was allowed for the subjects of the king than was permitted during most of the year). Seeger and MacColl performed and recorded as a duo and as solo artists; MacColl wrote "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" in Seeger's honour (and did so during a long-distance phone call between the two while Seeger was performing in America and MacColl was barred from traveling to the U.S. with her due to his radical political views). None of the couple's numerous albums use any electric or electronic instrumentation. Whilst MacColl wrote many songs about work and against war and prejudice, Seeger (who also wrote such songs) sang about women's issues, with many of her songs becoming anthems of the women's movement. Her most memorable was "I'm Gonna Be an Engineer". There were two major projects dedicated to the Child Ballads. The first was The Long Harvest (10 volumes 1966 - 1975). The second was Blood and Roses (5 volumes, 1979 -- 1983). She visited the women's camp at Greenham Common, where protests against U.S.cruise missiles were concentrated. For them she wrote "Carry Greenham Home". Seeger ran a record label "Blackthorne" from 1976 to 1988. Seeger identifies as bisexual and contributed an essay to Getting Bi: Voices of Bisexuals Around the World. In it she details a relationship she began with Irene Pyper-Scott after Ewan MacColl died. After nearly two decades of living in the United States, Seeger has moved back to the United Kingdom in order to be nearer to her children. Seeger preformed "Tell My Sister" on a live tribute album to the late Canadian folk artist Kate McGarrigle titled Sing Me the Songs: Celebrating the Works of Kate McGarrigle. The album was released in June 2013.

Ani DiFranco covering Pete Seeger's "Which Side Are You On", Aspen, CO
Ani DiFranco does an amazing rendition of Pete Seeger's "Which Side Are You On" incorporating her own modern day lyrics. *@ Belly Up (Sunday, August 15, 2010, Aspen, CO) "Which Side Are You On?" was a song written by Florence Reece in 1931. She was the wife of a union organizer for the United Mine Workers in Harlan County, Kentucky. In 1931 the miners of that region were locked in a bitter and violent struggle with the mine owners. In an attempt to intimidate the Reece family, deputies hired by the mining company illegally entered and searched the Reece family home. Sam Reece had been warned in advance and escaped, but Florence and their children were terrorized in his place. That night, after the men had gone, Florence wrote the lyrics to "Which Side Are You On?" on a calendar that hung in the kitchen of her home. She took the melody from a traditional Baptist hymn, "Lay the Lily Low", or the traditional ballad "Jack Munro". Florence recorded the song and it can be heard on the CD Coal Mining Women.

For the Union makes us strong. Chorus: 3. It is we who plowed the prairies; Built the cities where they trade, Dug the mines and built the workshops; Endless miles of railroad laid.

They have taken untold millions That they never toiled to earn. But without our brain and muscle Not a single wheel can turn. We can break their haughty power; Gain our freedom, when we learn That the Union makes us strong. Chorus: 6. In our hands is placed a pot Greater than their hoarded gold; Greater than the might of armies, Magnified a thousand fold. We can bring to birth the new world From the ashes of the old, For the Union makes us strong. Chorus:

A Whiter Shade Of Pale - Procol Harum
Also see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pf73XwjZIFQ and https://youtu.be/_trOp2HGUAM?t=223 - And could you please stop commenting about it being 'originally written by' Johann Sebastian Bach? This composition stands tall on its own. Every song out there is *inspired* by those from other songwriters, you don't need to brag about your miracle discovery; I'm holding a do-I-give-a-shit-o-meter in my hand, and the needle's not moving. Original 16mm Scopitone conversion, from the 'summer of love' 1967 hit record, remuxed and refurbished in 2006 (I should re-upload in higher quality, I know, I will when I find the time to do so..). Fixed audio-sync (it was badly done). Sound engineer of this famous mono mix was Keith Grant. Vocals and piano played by Gary Brooker. Matthew Fisher played the Hammond organ, and these original lyrics were written by Keith Reid; We skipped the light fandango turned cartwheels 'cross the floor I was feeling kinda' seasick the crowd called out for more the room was humming harder as the ceiling flew away when we called out for another drink the waiter brought a tray and so it was that later as a mirror told its tale that her face at first just ghostly turned a whiter shade of pale She said: "There is no reason and the truth is plain to see" but I wandered through my playing cards would not let her be one of sixteen vestal virgins who were leaving for the coast and although my eyes were open they might just as well've been closed and so it was that later as the miller told his tale that her face at first just ghostly turned a whiter shade of pale..

Peggy Seeger - Get Away, Old Man  [HD]
Peggy Seeger sings the traditional song 'Get Away, Old Man' on the 1960s album 'A Lover's Garland'. Though not listed, I believe that Alf Edwards (on concertina in the liner notes) is probably the male voice assisting Peggy Seeger on the refrains of the song. This song was popular in the United States with a pop Tin Pan Alley version in the 1930s. Ewan MacColl is, of course, pictured in the video on the album covers, but I do show one picture of Alf Edwards at the end.

What Did You Learn in School Today? - Pete Seeger, Tom Paxton
Pete Seeger sings Tom Paxton's song live on the "Tonight In Person" Show (1964). Here's some of the "best" lyrics: I learned that Washington never told a lie. I learned that soldiers seldom die. I learned that everybody's free. And that's what the teacher said to me. That's what I learned in school today. That's what I learned in school. Sounds familiar, doesn't it?
