During a marathon recording session for Stinson Records in April, 1944, Woody Guthrie invited guitarist (and Merchant Marine shipmate) Cisco Houston and harmonica player Sonny Terry to join him for an impromptu jam session. Here are 15 of their best performances, including the previously unissued 'Guitar Rag,' 'Brown's Ferry Blues' and 'Sonny's Flight.'
'These recordings are treasures. To sit and listen, is to sit with Woody and his crew. And you become a part of that crew, and you hear how they listen to each other's voices, how they lean in to connect their rhythms and harmonies. It's achingly human, simple and direct yet full of spirited words and ideas. You can hear so much; the man, his friends, his words, his times, his passions, his angers, his family, his government, his home, his road.
'It's very, very strange. The more time goes by, the clearer Woody's voice gets.'
