John Henry is an African American folk hero. He is said to have worked as a "steel-driving man"-a man tasked with hammering a steel drill into rock to make holes for explosives to blast the rock in constructing a railroad tunnel. According to legend, John Henry's prowess as a steel-driver was measured in a race against a steam-powered rock drilling machine, a race that he won only to die in victory with hammer in hand as his heart gave out from stress

It appears that Seeger and Hamilton each picked up one or the other of the indicated instruments for the tunes selected for this picking session and went to town. That the word "Voices" appears last is significant in that this is largely an instrumental album

The other tracks were non-album singles from the 1950s. 18 songs, 50 minutes. Lovely example of a hybrid of crooner/folk style. I have listened to two of the discs so far: the sound on the Pete Seeger disc is poor-sounds like it was just slapped on from a monaural recording; the Burl Ives disc has nearly perfect sound, and I do so love his voice! I expect that the rest of the discs will be uneven in quality, just as these two are.
