Peggy Quotes

For decades, Seeger has been one of the most authoritative voices in American and English folk...While she is acknowledged as an esteemed interpreter of traditional material and a gifted instrumentalist, she is perhaps best known for her observant and caustic original songs about women. - Chris Morris, Billboard

Peggy Quotes 2

One minute I was crying with laughter as Peggy read 1950s advice for wives.Then, like a curving ball from nowhere, a wave of emotion hit me and I was fighting to hide sobs, blinded by mascara, when Peggy sang The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face.
- Sue Brough

 

An Odd Collection Notes

An Odd Collection - (cassette and CD, ROUN 4031)

An intriguing selection, written by Peggy. Songs about love, loss, violence against women, hormones, housework, unions, farting, abortion, ecology, old friends, weddings, nuclear pollution, bodily dimensions and the female vote. Quite unlike any of Peggy's previous solo albums.

"The muse who inspired Ewan MacColl's 'First Time Ever I Saw Your Face' has produced a body of work that is unparalleled in its vehemence and remains a fountain of inspiration in a sea of bogus political correctiveness . . . An Odd Collection delivers an abundance of themes, ranging from a tribute to folklorist Ralph Rinzler to wife-battering. Easy listening this is not, but if difficult it is difficult only in a stirring sense." (Ken Hunt, QMagazine, London)
