TJR says

This 12" LP on the Smithsonian Folkways label was as themed as themed could be. 13 songs for the working man and his trade unions. Side B was "Talking Union" (the complete 3 x 78 Almanac Singers album from 1941) and side A was "Other Union Songs", an offering of 7 new songs from Pete Seeger. A strong set.
