Pete Seeger at the Village Gate with Memphis Slim and Willie Dixon

A paean to the joys of live performance, this album features rousing singalongs, blues, spirituals, and songs from South Africa and the Bahamas. Willie Dixon and Memphis Slim join Seeger in this performance, which includes "The Quizmasters," Ernie Marrs' song about the deals politicians make with big business—written in 1959 but relevant today.
