I had this album on vinyl and have finally gotten it on disc. Historically valid tunes with words adapted to union issues from old hymns and popular music of the day. A good teaching tool as well. You'll quickly get swept up in singing along with the group (especially if you're alone in the car). One person found this helpful.

Released by Seeger and the Almanac Singers on the 1941 album Talking Union, it was written in the 1930s by Florence Reece, the wife of a union organizer for coal workers in Harlan County, Kentucky. Seeger popularized it and broadened its meaning over the years, turning it into an anthem of progressive solidarity. Round and Round Hitler’s Grave. Seeger is revered for being an anti-war singer. But during WWII, Americans were united against a common foe, and the Almanac Singers were on board. Co-written with colleague Woody Guthrie, it features Seeger and company as bloodthirsty avengers. Per one verse: "I'm-a going to Berlin/To Mister Hitler's town/I'm gonna take my forty-four/And blow his playhouse down.

Roll the Union On. length: 1:55.
