The Woody Guthrie Story

The Woody Guthrie Story Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For the first time, Woody Guthrie, the man who inspired Bob Dylan to be a singer, and as a result affected the hearts and minds of generations of musicians long after his death, is documented on this exhaustive set. Hear the story of the great man and the music he made, across four lovingly produced discs. The Legendary Performers series is a heady mixture of spoken-word and music packages, covering some of the most influential performers of all time. All titles are expansive four-CD sets, with two CDs in each set consisting of a newly researched audio-biography. The remaining two CDs feature complementary music track recordings from the artist, and all packages are presented in luxury full-color slipcases. Two eight-page booklets of background information accompany each set, featuring a host of previously unpublished photographs throughout, which will delight and surprise even the most obsessive collector.

Synopsis:

Woodrow Wilson Guthrie, named after the Democratic Presidential Candidate, went on to write something over a thousand songs. Bridging the gap between the urban folk scene and country music, Woody`s songs often dealt with controversial political and social issues. Tragically, Woody`s creativity was cut short by the onset of his hereditary Huntington`s Disease, leaving him unable to compose and perform and eventually leading to his death in 1967. Always remembered for collaborating with musical legends Jimmy Rogers, Pete Seeger, Cisco Houston and the Carter Family.
