Woody Guthrie - My Dusty Road
Woody Guthrie - My Dusty Road - Rounder [$79.89]
A man's life lived out of a suitcase, Woody Guthrie's My Dusty Road, inaugurates the new Woody Guthrie Legacy Series on Rounder Records. This four-CD boxed set is literally packaged in a suitcase and vital remnants of Guthrie's vagabond life: unpublished photos, lyric sheets, a business card, a post card to his wife and a booking card from the 1940s. These are also the cleanest recordings of Guthrie's work yet to date. His unrivaled folk, full of emotional nuance impresses you upon first listen to My Dusty Road and these songs timelessly revel in the wayward traveler's experience of America. No wonder Guthrie was Bob Dylan's signature musical influence. This collection is for those who love Bob Dylan and want to trace the origins of his genius to Guthrie's masterly crafted and treasured music, as well as anyone interested in American roots music and popular song.
