Bob Dylans' Woody Guthrie

Bob Dylans' Woody Guthrie


It’s no secret that Bob Dylan’s influences are many, and he is never shy to reveal and champion the artists whose music touched him and provided inspiration for his own astonishing body of work. Chief amongst these celebrated songwriters and performers is a man whose life was chaotic, whose health was poor and whose morals were, albeit generally well intentioned, quite often dubious.
But Woody Guthrie – for it is he – composed and performed music that lifted the sprits of just about everyone who witnessed it, often during times of severe national depression and war, in which his North American homeland was so entrenched during the best part of his professional life. Bob Dylan would later say of his first taste of Woody’s music; “ I was stunned–didn’t know if I was stoned or straight. All these songs made my head spin. It made me want to gasp. It was like the land parted …”.
Dylan has to date recorded or performed a total of fifty-one Woody Guthrie tracks, everyone of which is presented on this 2 disc collection. From the song which has become the alternative US national anthem, 'This Land Is Your Land', to cuts which many will associate first and foremostwith other artists, such as 'Tom Joad', 'Bad Leroy Brown' and 'Gypsy Davey' - via obscure Guthrie numbers which the listener may well witness here for the first time, this joyous collection is all at once inspiring, educational, joyous and entertaining and will delight just about anyone with an ear for a great tune.
