Woody Guthrie Sings Folk Songs

Woody Guthrie SFW40007

Deservedly a Folkways catalog classic. These fourteen songs (including Hard Travelin' and Oregon Trail) find Guthrie accompanied by Lead Belly, Cisco Houston, Sonny Terry, Bess Hawes, and others. Truly essential for anyone interested in America's greatest balladeer. "...[C]ommunal and joyous...a wildly ecstatic coming together of folk influences." — CD Review
