Here are many of Woody Guthrie's 'Greatest Hits,' along with the previously unissued 'Bad Repetation.' The sound quality of these 1944 songs is superb, taken from newly discovered original master recordings. Guitarist/singer Cisco Houston and harmonica player Sonny Terry accompany Woody on many tracks.
'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.'
