Album Reviews:

Rolling Stone (p.72) - 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "[S]umptuous....That moral spine and Guthrie's poetic way with the vernacular were central to the folk revival....WOODY AT 100 is the pure, charged source of that legacy..."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.101) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "[Guthrie was] a real life Huck Finn with a voice like an oily rag, who charmed all-comers with a combination of intensely human songwriting and wry wit..."

Album Notes

Woody Guthrie defined an era in his Dust Bowl ballads, outlaw tales, work and labor songs, antiwar songs, children's songs, political songs, and a host of love songs and songs that touched on philosophy, geography, and the hard work of living day to day in an emerging industrial world. This set, issued for Guthrie's centennial year, captures the whole story, including previously unreleased recordings of Guthrie's earliest material, made in 1937 when he was working for a radio station in Los Angeles.
