The Bells of Rhymney, And Other Songs & Stories from the Singing of Pete Seeger
The 1964 sequel to "American Favorite Ballads" has been out of print for over 18 years. In the same format - melody, chords and lyrics, heavily illustrated with photos - "The Bells of Rhymney" includes many gems that have been difficult to find in recent years, including: The Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly · The Foolish Frog (A song/barnyard story) · Several songs by Woody Guthrie,including "Woody's Rag," a mandolin instrumental included here in notation and TAB · Worried Man Blues · Guantanamera · German, Spanish, French, Yiddish and even Japanese language songs · Wim-o-weh (the basis for "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" - this arrangement includes a bass vocal line, the duet 'wimoweh' part,and a falsetto line. Seeger's arrangement - by "Paul Campbell," a pseudonym for the four members of the Weavers - is a classic copyright story, for the hit version by the Tokens obviously owed a lot to this arrangement, but was not bound to it legally.) · Where Have All the Flowers Gone? · How Can I Keep from Singing? · Wasn't That a Time? · This Little Light of Mine · Living in the Country (a instrumental - in guitar tab - by Seeger) · and more.
