Fast Folk Musical Magazine (Vol. 3, No. 8) Season's Greetings

To celebrate the winter solstice in 1986, Fast Folk Musical Magazine issued a collection of seasonal songs. This album includes performances with Pete Seeger singing "Cristo Ya Nacio en Palacaquina" with vocal backing by Peter, Paul and Mary, and Pete along with Peter, Paul and Mary singing background to Bob Killian's "Light a Candle." Other holiday songs include "Last Wise Man" sung by Bobbie Wayne, the 17th-century song "Jeanette Isabelle" presented in both French and English by Linda Russell, "Der Winter Hersht" sung by Deb Cayman, "A Modest Proposal" (a song about long underwear) sung by Fred Small, and Peggy Seeger's song "Come Fill the Glasses" performed by a folk ensemble calling themselves the Tinsel Tones. An 18-page facsimile of Fast Folk Musical Magazine is included with the recording.
