Abstract:

"Woody Guthrie was, without question, one of the greatest artists to ever lend his talents to the evolution of American folk music. He wrote thousands of songs in his lifetime and recorded hundreds of them. While many of his compositions are still being discovered, this box set presents 54 songs [including some that were previously unreleased] preserved remarkably well on their steel masters. The sound quality is incredibly clear and the energy on these discs is palpable."--Review by Kim Ruehl.
