A CD of Pete made with children:
Tomorrow's Children. Pete loved to sing with children. He recorded this album with an informal chorus put together especially for this album of children living in his immediate area of the Hudson Valley. He is also joined by a number of other great singers including Dar Williams and Bruce Springsteen. Note: Although children sing on every track of this CD, these are not actually children's songs as such.
