Customer Review

on 16 March 2000
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.
