Like Woody Guthrie before him, Utah Phillips is a folksinger who knows that a song can be a powerful weapon in the politics of class struggle. On this album, he performs songs from the celebrated 'Little Red Songbook' of the Industrial Workers of the World union (better known as the Wobblies). First published in 1909, the IWW songbook offered parodies of Salvation Army favorites, plus other well-known tunes which were used as rallying cries in the early days of labor organization, including 'Joe Hill,' Guthrie's 'Union Burying Ground' and Mac McClintock's 'Hallelujah, I'm a Bum.'
