    via email: New Items - Labor Heritage Foundation Catalog
    Dear Friends,
    The Classic Labor Song CD was so popular that we ran out within 24 hours. Fortunately, Smithsonian-Folkways has provided us with more CDs for us to sell at the low price of $10 until the end of the year. They are available at www.laborheritage.org/catalog.html and now there is no limit on the number you can purchase.

    The CD is an extraordinary collection of 27 labor songs from Paul Robeson, Bobbie McGee, Pete Seeger, the Almanac Singers, Joe Glazer, John Handcox, Mike Seeger, Peggy Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Utah Phillips, Florence Reece, Joe Uehlein, New Harmony Sisterhood Band, Hazel Dickens, Larry Penn, Tom Juravich, Eddie Starr, Kenny Winfree, John O'Connor, Anne Feeney, Elaine Purkey, Jon Fromer, and Baldemar Velasquez.

    They make great gifts not just for the holidays, but also as thank you gifts. And the music deserves to circulate throughout the labor movement.

    You can order the Classic Labor Songs CD online at www.laborheritage.org/catalog.html for only $10. Also, the Good Chants for a Lively Picket Line booklet has been reprinted and is available once again.
    Take care,
    Peter Jones
    Labor Heritage Foundation
