A better collection than the "Folk The Banks" album. I think the lyrics have more vibrancy and the songs aren't just anti-bank, they're pro-justice. Many artists covering a wide variety of styles but overall great production work and some memorable tunes to whistle when the sun goes down and the cold settles in.

4.0 out of 5 stars Large Collection With A Handful Of Gems May 15 2012
By Keith R. Darnay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
First, you should know that this CD collection does not contain 100 songs, but rather 76 total. There is an MP3 version of this album with the 100 songs (99 plus a "hidden track" on Disc 4) listed at $9.99. However, there is also an MP3 version with a digital booklet and video of "Can I Sleep On Your Futon" with the 100 songs also for $9.99. So carefully check the listings for the different versions to make sure you get the one you want. A number of the songs here are fair to poor with predictable lyrics, but there are several gems that do stand out. A few of the standouts, in my opinion, are: "Something's Got To Give,"by Matt Pless; "Come On, Come On, Come On," by Jackson Browne; "The Panic is On," by Loudon Wainright III; "Save Us," by Paper Cranes; "Smile (Get Up And Sing)," by Jay Samel; "Hey, Can I Sleep On Your Futon," by Richard Barone; "A Peaceful Solution," by Willie Nelson; "The World Is On Fire," by Ace Reporter; "Turn The Lights On," by Chroma; "Hell No (I'm Not Alright)," by Nanci Griffith. There are several more -- I don't want to muddy up this review with simply listing a dozen or so more titles. Again, these are the ones that I particularly like -- your tastes will certainly differ. If you're wondering whether this is worth buying (CD or MP3 version), the answer is yes. There are enough quality tunes here to make it worth the price. Just be prepared to go through a lot of tracks to find the ones you like.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ever Wondered Where Today's Protest Singers Are? June 2 2012
By vmdemoss - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
They're here...along with some of the best of my generation. As a life-long liberal (aging hippie?) who likes to stay open to new things, it's nice to have the opportunity to be introduced to some musicians new to me who see the light and carry on the spirit of the best folksingers of the past. Not all of the cuts represent the kind of music I like best, but all of them deliver a powerful message we all need to hear and respond to before it's too late. In fact, I like that the CD is so eclectic because it truly delivers the message to everyone. There's nothing more powerful than music to move people to action...and this is one powerful album in so many ways.

If your taste in Music is a bit Eclectic as is mine this C.D. will satisfy nearly all your differing taste in music. The Production is of Good Quality sounding clear and Professional. There is a lot of Music for the money on this 4 C.D. compilation. It will be excellent to have for long road trips. This C.D. is sure to become a collectors item and a Historic talisman.

3.0 out of 5 stars worth it but not as good as I expected Oct. 19 2012
By Joy Leftow - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Still it's a lot of bang for your buck and has some very nice songs that make it worthwhile, such as Jackson Browne's song, which I believe was written for this album. Pete Seeger still is kicking strong and I love Yoko Ono, she's got spirit and is unique. People are still copying her. You could say she was a forerunner to punk rock. I dig the Wall Street Drummers and got to chill with some of the dudes during the Zucchotti Park thing. They were very cool dudes and good drummers. Deborah Harry is still beautiful and her song is cool. I like Tao Rodriguez-Seeger too and of course I love David Crosby and Graham Nash. Tom Morello's song is quite good. I have been listening to Toots and the Maytals since the 70's and their song is great too. Willie Nelson has soul. So even if like me you only really dig 10 or 12 songs or 15 or 20, this is still a great buy for a great cause.
