Arlo Guthrie
Arlo Guthrie: Tales of ‘69
(Rising Son)
Releasing: 18 August 2009 (US)


Arlo Guthrie is a certifiable folk legend, plus the son of another one, and a true ‘60s icon with a fine pedigree in the field of protest music. Perfect for these troubled times for sure and his music has a certain timeliness to it in the face of a rather famous anniversary this summer—yes, it was 40 years ago that the cultural event that was Woodstock took place in a muddy field in rural New York. To celebrate, Guthrie is releasing some live recordings he made right before Woodstock at a venue on Long Island. Tales of ‘69 features nine songs from that event and we have an exclusive one for you in “Coming into Los Angeles”.


Guthrie is going to have a very busy fall as he heads out on a massive tour being labeled as the “Guthrie Family Rides Again”. The tour will feature Arlo’s classics as well as a bunch of his father’s unreleased lyrics recently set to music by a stellar cast of collaborators, including Billy Bragg and Wilco. The tour will truly be a family event as Guthrie will be joined by his son Abe and daughters Cathy, Annie and Sarah Lee. The tour begins in October and runs all the way through next May (dates below).


SONG LIST
01 The Unbelievable Motorcycle Tale
02 What a Gas
03 Coming into Los Angeles
04 If You Would Just Drop By
05 If Ever I Should See the Mountain
06 Finger Pickin’ Good (Simply Tuning)
07 Alice—Before Time Began
08 Road to Everywhere
09 Hurry to Me
