Woody Guthrie is the original folk hero. It was Guthrie who, in the Thirties and Forties, transformed the folk ballad into a vehicle for social protest and observation. In so doing, he paved the way for Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and a host of other folk and rock songwriters who have been moved by conscience to share experiences and voice opinions in a forthright manner. Guthrie wrote literally hundreds of songs, including such revered classics as "So Long, It's Been Good To Know You," "Grand Coulee Dam," "I Ain't Got No Home" and "Dust Bowl Refugees." all included on this 99 track 4 CD set.
