      Malvina Reynolds, the well-known songwriter and activist for social justice and the environment, performs some of her most famous songs in this compilation of studio and live recordings from the 1960s and 1970s. Reflecting the cultural and political turmoil of the day, her powerful, sometimes somber, sometimes lighthearted songs address issues still pertinent today: environmental deterioration, women's rights, workers' rights, social justice, and the homogenization of culture. Extensive notes written by musician friend Rosalie Sorrels. Instrumentation ranges from acoustic guitar to richly orchestrated pieces with bass, drums, piano, harmonica, organ, cello, violin, steel guitar, and harp. 62 minutes. 32-page booklet.
