    The Weavers of 2003 did not sing as well as they did in 1982, or 1952, but if anything they had more heart, because more memories.
  2. Any opportunity to see Pete Seeger perform, even at age 85, is worth taking - and Seeger is front, center and full-throated in Jim Brown's concert film.

    White-haired Ronnie Gilbert of the Weavers -- the group was blacklisted during the McCarthy years -- is in especially fine voice.

    The film's heart is the concert, whose highlights include "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?," "Wimoweh," "Guantanamera" and the crowd-pleasing "Have You Been to Jail for Justice?"

    Watching the aging, but still spirited, singers come together to express their gratitude for the man who started their careers is often genuinely touching.

    Excellent filmography in capturing the concert for Harold Leventhal and providing a background on the folk movement and connecting it to our times. Great job Jim brown. Full Review »

    Beautifully done and recalls a great time that perhaps is relevant again. Jim Brown does a great job in weaving between the concert for Harold Leventhal as well as the history of the folk movement. Full Review »
