"The new reissue under review here is easily the best version of this recording I have ever heard. It lets you hear the nuances of the performance like I have never heard before. Things that were hard to hear on the other recording were very easy to hear now. Its ability to let you hear decay, layering, body and scale was simply better than the earlier copy. I want to thank Chad and Analogue Productions for giving me such a great sounding version of this beloved LP. Very highly recommended!" — Jack Roberts,, September 2012

Recorded on location at Carnegie Hall on May 2 and 3, 1963 at two historic concerts celebrating the 15th anniversary of the Weavers featuring Bernie Krause, Frank Hamilton, Pete Seeger, Erik Darling, Ronnie Gilbert, Lee Hays and Fred Hellerman.

The Weavers are, some profess, the greatest folk group of the past century. They fostered the folk boom of the late 1950s and early 1960s, yet as All Music Guide notes, others scored with their songs, notably Peter, Paul and Mary, who took the early Weavers song "If I Had a Hammer" into the Top 10. The group reclaimed that song and others, such as "Wimoweh" (which was pilfered by the Tokens as "The Lion Sleeps Tonight"), and at their reunion performed their own old hits such as "Goodnight Irene."

Numerous lead singers make this concert sound more like a folk festival than a group performance, but this record remains a very spirited and passionate performance. This is a real classic, both musically and sonically.
