Darling Corey/Goofing-Off Suite

Darling Corey/Goofing-Off Suite

This reissue combines two early 1950s LPs that highlight the instrumental virtuosity of Pete Seeger. In Darling Corey, he paid homage to the mountain musicians whose banjo styles he adopted; in Goofing-Off Suite, he took the banjo into new musical territory and blazed a trail many have followed. Thirty tracks of brilliant musicianship. "Originally released as 10-inch albums...Corey and Goofing-Off Suite helped launch a generation of pickers and singers.... Grand testimony to the breadth and variety of American folk song and style.... Wonderful vintage examples of that curious mix of casual personability and determined virtuosity that have made Pete Seeger our most respected—and best liked—folk personality for over half a century." — New England Folk Almanac
