Description
The title of this collection is telling, because singers who agitated for social justice in the '40s and '50sóthink Pete Seeger and the Weaversówere often, strangely, decried as "unpatriotic." In honor of Woody Guthrie's importance to American music, Rounder has compiled this comprehensive, limited-edition boxed set of material he recorded for the U.S. Government. Here are Guthrie's complete Library of Congress interviews and musical performances as recorded by Alan Lomax; his songs written for the Bonneville Power Administration; songs made for a 1940s public health service education program; and three radio skits. Among the 85 songs are "Old Joe Clark," "Beaumont Rag," "Green Valley Waltz," "Greenback Dollar," "Boll Weevil," "The Midnight Special," "Talking Dust Bowl," and "Do-Re-Mi." The set also includes a 78 RPM record with Bob Dylan performing Woody's song, "VD City," and a previously unreleased version of Woody singing "The Biggest Thing That Man Has Ever Done" on the B-side, plus a 60-page booklet and a performance DVD.
