Woody Guthrie was a name I knew well before I knew the music. Strangley, I came across his music before I made a connection with his name!
This CD is an open window on the simple recordings of Woody's raw folk music. Accompanied only by himself on guitar and harmonica the sounds feel very intimate. They are suited best to a cabin or a diner in the American Mid West or an industrial canteen of the 1940s. They would be out of place in a swish concert hall.
This is music which reflects the simple and restrained emotions of the poor of America. Aspirations, fears and feelings of pride all feature in the works. A cerebal listening experience a million miles from muzak! Listen on.

5.0 out of 5 stars American folk 24 Feb 2007
By Spider Monkey HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
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!

Feel free to check out my blog which can be found on my profile page.

To paraphrase Dr. Johnstone "when you are tired of Woody Guthrie you are tired of folk music". This is a marvellous performance from an enlightened era of American music. Quite magnificent!

2.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Dull 9 Aug 2010
By Mag
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Only listened to a couple of times because as with many compilations, found that all the eomponents are there (good songs) but there is little context and this you don't get a feel for when and why the songs were written. I though Guthrie was better. Some of the recordings are a bit wobbly in pitch probably due to the source recordings - sounds a bit like a stretched and well played audio cassette at times.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Original Folkie 16 Jun 2000
By Chris Houston - Published on Amazon.com
I recently had my interest in Woody Guthrie sparked by the release of Billy Bragg and Wilco's second volume of Guthrie tunes. So I decided to go back to their originator and see what it was all about, and I'm happy I did. Guthrie was a true master at what he did - write folk tunes with a variety of social and political lyrics. I can't really pick out one song that is better than others, because nearly all of them are great. Please, if you are a fan of Wilco and Billy Bragg's Mermaid Avenue vol. 1 and 2, check out their source and listen to Woody himself.
