Living in the Country

Living in the Country

There are two versions of Living in the Country in this home-made recording from the Folk Music of the World show on WQXR radio in the late 1960s. The first version is from a London recording made in 1960, which starts with Pete Seeger talking about Huddie Ledbetter and he seems to attribute Living in the Country to him. It is unlike any other recording of Living in the Country, starting with a powerful, rhythmic, blues section that breaks into the lighter melody with which we are familiar. The second is the well-known "whistling" version that appears in numerous recordings by Pete Seeger and other artists.
