Woody Guthrie has inspired so many artists, it would be remiss to not have him in your collection. The recordings are a little dated, but it takes nothing away from the rawness of the music and the story telling in the lyrics. You can't help but be reminded of 'The Grapes of Wrath' when you listen to this album and you can hear Dylan, Springsteen and Seeger have been influenced by this artist more than any other when they perform their folk and blues music. This is not always an easy listen, but it is always a rewarding one!
