Review of Rich Siegel’s album “The Way to Peace”, by Chris Spector
Interesting little record that you think fit’s the format but really doesn’t. Coming in with a theatrical/folkie/cabaret vibe, Siegel sends out a Zen message about getting peace across the world. He doesn’t hit you over the head with the message and it’s actually a long way away from church basement folk music. Certainly this is a sound for anyone that was ever into passive resistance and civil disobedience but as we all know, in the end, you have to fight for peace. More for the Pete Seeger fan than the granola eater, this is more or less a well envisioned take on the gentle side of protest music.
