Iconic folk singer Pete Seeger describes the music of Lead Belly as "some of the best songs we'll ever know." On this 11-track recording, Seeger pays tribute to the legendary blues musician and 12-string guitar virtuoso he also called a friend. Performed live with both exuberance and deference, the selections on this recording present a small fraction of Lead Belly's extensive repertoire but include greats such as "Goodnight Irene," "Midnight Special," and "Alabama Bound." Sleeve notes written by Seeger include a biography of Lead Belly and recount the origins of their friendship, and what it was that made Lead Belly the artist he was.
