Songs of Freedom
Sixteen songs from the life and times of one of folk's premiere songwriters, exploring the political and personal sides of today's world, from Springtime In America and Election NIght At Walmart's hopeful look at the future, to Why It's So's sardonic take on murder, torture and celebrity juries. Throw in The Bellybutton Song, an instant children's classic where not only you, me and Snow White have bellybuttons, but also Jesus, Mohammed, Gandhi and the Dalai Lama, plus When You Were Two, a song that will have you asking yourself: What do I really remember of my own life? 'This is another terrific collection of political songs and beyond. It's what we've come to expect from this stalwart of the folk world, delivered with Rod's smooth, identifiable tenor'...Sing Out! Autumn/winter 2012 'A delightful collection of sixteen songs that inform, question, challenge and celebrate community as well as the personal....there are stacks of rich pickings on SONGS OF FREEDOM. Time to wake up and listen'.... Arthur Wood, © Maverick Magazine August 2011.
