As the album goes on, the workers' complaints about ill treatment and low pay become more extreme, and eventually the need for unions to represent them seems overwhelming. Even then, the bosses respond with violence, as Seeger documents in such songs as Jim Garland's "The Death of Harry Simms" and Della Mae Graham's "Ballad of Barney Graham," both true stories of murdered union men.

Had Pete Seeger made more records like this, the quality of his art would stand up to the reputation of his legend. With a stunning, single-minded focus, Seeger delivers hard-driven song after song, 24 in all, and creates a kind of summa of both American radical music and labor history. There are familiar tunes like "Peg and Awl," "Buffalo Skinners," "The Farmer Is the Man," "Hard Times at the Mill," as well as lesser known numbers like "Let Them Wear Their Watches Fine" and "My Children Are Seven in Number.
