Repost Bonanza: Woody Guthrie – Various Radio Appearances

I recently found a disk with a variety of Woody Guthrie songs. Its full of fabulous stuff, but unfortunately I didn’t have any kind of information about it. I tried to input the setlist as best I could before I uploaded it but some songs are mislabeled. A little more digging and I think I have all the proper notations now, but again the MP3s are mislabeled. Sorry about that.

Its a brilliant set though. Some of the best Woody stuff I’ve ever heard. There’s lots of additional players as well including Pete Seeger. And its all just tons of fun to listen to.

*From Guy Logsdon’s Discography, reprinted in Santelli, Robert & Davidson, Emily (eds.),
Hard Travelin’ — The Life and Legacy of Woody Guthrie, Hanover and London, 1999, p. 196:

“7 JULY 1944. Woody was a Merchant Marine, “washing dishes on a Liberty Ship,” the troop ship Sea Porpoise which carried troops to the Normandy beach in early July 1944. After the troops were sent ashore, the ship hit a mine but made its way back to England; Woody was routed through London toward Glasgow, Scotland, toward the United States. On a song manuscript dated “July 13th, 1944”, Woody wrote, “this train is carrying me outside from London now; on up towards Belfast, and Glasgow.”

While in London, he went to the offices of the BBC where he introduced himself as a member of The Martins and the Coys [produced by Alan Lomax for the BBC in late March 1944, broadcast by the BBC on 26 June 1944] and was given the opportunity to sing on the Children’s Hour. After an autobiographical statement, he was recorded singing with his guitar accompaniment two railroad songs.

900 Miles is the minor-key melody that Cisco made popular.
