Pete Seeger - Goofing Off Suite
2018 vinyl reissue remastered from the original 1955 master tapes, packaged in classic Folkways-style tip-on jackets with original liner notes.
Originally issued as a 10-inch album in 1955, Goofing-Off Suite finds Pete Seeger playing a mix of classical, popular, and folk music. Side 1 of the recording includes five classical music themes adapted by Seeger for banjo. In the liner notes, Seeger urges musicians to swipe music from different genres to break down musical barriers and expand musical horizons. Side 2 is Seeger playing a more familiar repertoire of traditional folk music on banjo, guitar, and chalil (flute) (“Sally My Dear”).
The vinyl reissue of Goofing-Off Suite includes Pete Seeger’s liner notes and is part of Folkways Records’ 70th anniversary celebration series, revisiting some of the most iconic and influential albums released on the record label.
