AllMusic Review by

A sleeve note claims this album, like its predecessor, The Weavers at Carnegie Hall, was "recorded on location at Carnegie Hall, Christmas 1955," but other sources suggest it was drawn from subsequent shows. Wherever the recordings were made, the album is a worthy successor to its landmark predecessor, leading off with "Tzena, Tzena, Tzena," a spirited early hit not included on the first live album. The set is divided into four parts, "songs that never fade," "tall tales," "history and geography," and "of peace and good will," and the selections range from traditional folk songs of various countries to originals like Lee Hays' "Wasn't That a Time." Not as historic as The Weavers at Carnegie Hall, The Weavers on Tour is at times just as enjoyable.
