Chronological list of Woody Guthrie's released recordings? by Q: I'm looking for a list comparing all of the known recordings of Woody Guthrie with all of his material that has been released. I don't mean the Wikipedia discography list, but rather a list showing how much of his recordings have been released in a way so that by buying his albums I would know if I was getting any repeats of the same tracks. I'm eventually looking to have a chronological list of all of his released material. Thanks to anyone who can help. This is a good list of the order Woody's albums came out. I'm looking for a list featuring the recording dates of released tracks rather than date of release. I figure the list starts with the Library of Congress Recordings (recorded 1940, released 1980). *released 1988

In the Woody Guthrie song "Do Re Mi", what does this phrase mean? by Paul M Q: The song is a warning to migrants from other states basically not to bother going west because its not all it's cracked up to be, but what does not having the do re mi mean?

A: its a play on the word Do as in money... "i aint got no do" the do re mi part is a reference to the musical scale taught when teaching ppl to sing. Its story is a reflection of the grapes of wrath, even tho they traveled the whole country, they got there, and there were no jobs...and in connection no Do either

WOODY GUTHRIE, THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND COMPLETE VER.? by Q: I know that their was a recording discovered not long ago of Woody singing This Land is Your Land, with all the verses including the 2 that are usually left out. Does anyone know where I can find it? I decided to place this in the blues section because I figured this is where the most knowledgeable people on older music would be

A: I hadn't heard anything about a new recording being discovered, but Woody recorded a five verse version for Folkways in the 40s, including the "private property" verse. One of his last cognizant acts was to take Arlo out in the back yard to teach him all the verses-the song was already popular by then, but most left out the "private property" and "relief office" verses. You can find Woody's five verse version on The Asch Recordings set. He also recorded several variants of the verse over the years.

Did Woody Guthrie hit the nail on the head in the lost verse of 'This Land' but only now it holds truth? by Last True Paladin of Scotland Q: In the squares of the city, In the shadow of a steeple; By the relief office, I'd seen my people. As they stood there hungry, I stood there asking, Is this land made for you and me? What I mean did he predict way things were going to go decades earlier. Since new verse was released in 1944.

Woody Guthrie's "Dust Bowl Ballads" record? by Q: I wanna buy an ORIGINAL copy of Woody Guthrie's "Dust Bowl Ballads", or one that's close to an original copy.

A: It was originally issued on 78, not lps. http://www.baumanrarebooks.com/rare-books/steinbeck-john-guthrie-woody/lp-album-dust-bowl-ballads-w/booklet-and-autograph-letter-signed/72098.aspx

Is there a Dylan song titled "A Fraction of Last Thoughts on Woody Guthrie," or was it written by Jack Johnson by James E Q: I just downloaded the "I'm Not There" soundtrack, and enjoyed Jack Johnson's recording of "A Fraction of Last Thoughts on Woody Guthrie." Was this song written by Dylan, or by Jack; is it possible to find a recording of Dylan playing this song? Thanks for your help

A: yes... and no. i'm not a fan of johnson, but i am a huge fan of dylan. the track on the i'm not there soundtrack is a combination of two dylan songs- "mama you've been on my mind" and "last thoughts on woody guthrie." although, the latter is more of a verbal reciting than song. you can find bob's version of both songs on the bootleg series volumes 1-3. link to entire tracklisting/lyrics below. i listened to the jack track to be able to answer this question- and you should know that while his rendition of "mama you've been on my mind" sounds like bob's, his interpretation of the "last thoughts on woody guthrie" sounds entirely different. he puts it to music, bob's has no music. his song is titled "a fraction..." because bob's poem (that's what it is really) is very long, and jack only chose a selection to put to music. i admire his choice... but i prefer dylan. hope i helped clear that up for you! i included a youtube link to bob dylan's version of "last thoughts on woody guthrie." i didn't watch the video, but i couldn't find the audio elsewhere. ((the first time i heard it was mind blowing))

Woody Guthrie questions? by illuminati2o12 Q: Please answer these questions if you know them. Thank You. 1. Why was Woody Guthrie so well suited to his role as chronicler of Depression Woes? 2. If Woody Guthrie were a young man traveling the country today, what groups or conditions do you think he would write songs about? 3. How do you suppose Woody Guthrie might have answered his question, Just what... has gone wrong here any how?

A: I'll give it a crack since I am a huge Woody G. fan 1. His personality for one; he was very gregarious and made a great spokesman for the downtrodden who weren't so outspoken. Also, his personal experience as a lad from a broken home and a family who were kicked out of their nice home in Oklahoma. 2. Definitely the homeless. #1 problem in America today. 3. Too much greed ; pure and simple. Powerful business execs. who take all the money out for themselves ; public who always want more and over-extend their credit to get it.

What was Woody Guthrie's best-known work...? by tracy Q: ... that he wrote while observing America from the tops of the traincars with the hobos? (during the great depression)

A: This Land is Your Land .

In the book "Bound for Glory" by Woody Guthrie, how did the econonmy impact the formative years of his life? by ilovehyrup Q: This on pp 19-115 of the book. Any help is greatly appreciated.. Thanks

A: In Pampa, Texas, July 1936, some men congregate at a dusty filling station in the middle of the day. Economic depression has them debating what’s going to happen to their town. In California, it’s said, you can just plop a seed in the ground and you’ll find a sprout the next day. Woody Guthrie would rather strum his guitar. A traveling man pulls in and offers the men a dollar for any news he can use. Guthrie correctly deduces the man’s vocation and dreams, and wins fifty cents, despite claiming he “ain’t no mind reader.” Woody’s wife Mary tells him he could make more money with his sign painting if he’d apply himself. The father of two seems to have other ideas. Word is out that he’s a fortune teller, and he’s asked to help a woman in town who has stopped drinking since her daughter died of dust pneumonia. By just talking to her, and the sound of Woody’s voice seems to break her out of her depression. Work is scarce, and as a dust storm covers Pampa, all Guthrie can do is pick his guitar and ride it out. With no way to support his family in West Texas, he leaves a note, “Gone to California. Will send for you all. Love, Woody,” and - with only his paintbrushes, a harmonica, and the clothes on his back - hits the open road. Guthrie falls in with some boxcar hoboes, before being kicked off the train by thugs. At the California border, he discovers the LAPD are turning away anyone who doesn’t have $300 cash. Guthrie finds himself at an encampment of fruit pickers, who practically beg for work from the ranchers. One day, Ozark Bule shows up at the camp with his guitar to spread the gospel of unionizing. He gets Guthrie an audition, and a $20 a week job performing on the radio results. Guthrie’s show is a success, and he receives a raise to $35 a week. But his new sponsors insist no controversial material appear on the program. Bule advises his protégé to make a living. On air, Guthrie decides to sing about the Dust Bowl, the police, and the people he met on the road. His wife convinces him to sing to the tune of management, but a run-in with a fruit picker convinces Guthrie that his songs are making a difference.

What did Woody Guthrie do after he read Grapes of Wrath, a novel built on the folklore of the depression? by Terry Q:

A: He wrote the Ballad of Tom Joad. According to my research he wrote it in 1940 after watching the movie. http://www.geocities.com/Nashville/3448/tomjoad.html "Ever'body might be just one big soul, Well it looks that a-way to me. Everywhere that you look, in the day or night, That's where I'm a-gonna be, Ma, That's where I'm a-gonna be. Wherever little children are hungry and cry, Wherever people ain't free. Wherever men are fightin' for their rights, That's where I'm a-gonna be, Ma. That's where I'm a-gonna be." This site gives a short interesting bio on Woody. http://www.woodyguthrie.org/index.htm

Why is woody guthrie considered a pioneer? by Q: Tell me about how he is new to do something. 10 pts. Tell me in the next hour and give me your source. No wikipedia or bad sources

A: Woody Guthrie was one of the first musical artists that wrote and sang about the plight of the working poor in America in the mid-20th century...making his music more of a social commentary than melodic entertainment. He was to his era what Bob Dylan was to the 1960's...the voice of questioning vision and reason in an unreasonable age.

Woody Guthrie--This land is your land..Where can I find more information on this? by sabrina r Q: I am doing some research on Woody Guthrie, I have searched the internet for stories about his songs, poetry etc. We are having to interpret some of his work. I did find some information about his illness, etc. Any suggestions?

A: Slightly built, with an extremely full and curly head of hair, Woody was a precocious and unconventional boy from the start. Always a keen observer of the world around him, the people, music and landscape he was exposed to made lasting impressions on him. During his early years in Oklahoma, Woody experienced the first of a series of immensely tragic personal losses. With the accidental death of his older sister Clara, the family's financial ruin, and the institutionalization and eventual loss of his mother, Woody's family and home life was forever devastated. Having lived through some of the most significant historic movements and events of the Twentieth-Century --the Great Depression, the Great Dust Storm, World War II, the social and the political upheavals resulting from Unionism, the Communist Party and the Cold War-- Woody absorbed it all to become a prolific writer whose songs, ballads, prose and poetry captured the plight of everyman. Mistakenly diagnosed and treated for everything from alcoholism to schizophrenia, his symptoms kept worsening and his physical condition deteriorated. Picked up for “vagrancy” in New Jersey in 1954, he was admitted into the nearby Greystone Psychiatric Hospital, where he was finally diagnosed with Huntington’s Chorea, the incurable degenerative nerve disorder now known as Huntington’s Disease or HD.

Fire was to dog Woody, boy and man. A kerosene lamp shattered - the OKEMAH LEDGER reported it as an accident, while folks in town whispered otherwise - and flames consumed his beloved older sister Clara, the one who called him "Woodblock," when the boy was just months shy of his seventh birthday. There were other fires, unexplained. Woody was not yet 15 when his mother hurled a kerosene lamp at a dozing Charley, searing his chest from neck to navel. Members of Charley's Masonic Lodge arranged to send Nora to the state asylum in Norman. lots of interesting information here too: http://www.pbs.org/wnet/americanmasters/database/guthrie_w.html

How do you strum This Land Is Your Land- Woody Guthrie on guitar? by Mona Q: I know the chords but I can't figure out how to strum this song at all...and there is nothing online that is straightforward. Can someone help me out?

A: Pluck the bass or root of each chord with the thumb followed by strumming up, down, up with your index finger. Woody Guthrie used an alternating bass technique – meaning he constantly changed the bass note. Attempt this technique after becoming comfortable with the basic strum. Here is a video demonstrating the basic strum. Good Luck and Have Fun~

is there a connection between Woody Guthrie and President Wilson? by Sparky Q: Woody Guthrie's full name is Woodrow Wilson Guthrie, and he was born in 1912. Pres. Wilson was elected in 1913. Woody was born in Oklahoma, and Pres. Wilson was from NJ... does Woody's name reference to the Pres-to-be? - odd since they are from different states...?

A: Famous folk artist Woody Guthrie was named after Woodrow Wilson. His dad, Charles Guthrie, known as Charley, was an industrious businessman, owning at one time up to 30 plots of land in Okfuskee county. Charley was also actively involved in Oklahoma politics and was a Democratic candidate for office in the county. The young Guthrie would often accompany his father when Charley made stump speeches in the area.

Why did Woody Guthrie write This land is your land? by Q: One of the questions on my history homework is, "Woddy Guthrie wrote and preformed 'This land is your land'. Explain Guthrie's intentions with this song" HELP!

A: "This Land Is Your Land" is one of the United States' most famous folk songs. Its lyrics were written by Woody Guthrie in 1940 based on an existing melody, in response to Irving Berlin's "God Bless America", which Guthrie considered unrealistic and complacent. Tired of hearing Kate Smith sing it on the radio, he wrote a response originally called "God Blessed America for Me". Guthrie varied the lyrics over time, sometimes including more overtly political verses than appear in recordings or publications. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/This_land_is_your_land http://lcweb2.loc.gov/diglib/ihas/loc.natlib.ihas.100010446/default.html

Should Woody Guthrie have been working for WPA? by Q: In 1941, Woody Guthrie was paid to write songs for a month as he visited the new dams under construction along the Columbia River in Washington State. wasn't he a commie?

A: How about a Woody Guthrie poster, nicely framed? There's a website called The Woody Guthrie Store that has a lot of items featuring Guthrie: books, CDs, posters, etc. Some of the posters look quite nice: http://woodyguthrie.org/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=TWGS&Category_Code=POST

When did Woody Guthrie tell the truth? by beachvolleysjh Q: My class is doing a report on American truth tellers, and I was given Woody Guthrie. I have done research and I don't get when he was a truth teller.

A: Maybe he didn't. The guy was a fellow-traveller if not an outright Commie, a bit slipshod in his sexual mores, and probably not above embellishing history to make a good song. If it's really a research paper and not political indoctrination, your teacher will be into a well-supported case that he WASN'T a truth teller, if that's what you see. The answer you're "supposed" to give is, "He wrote about the plight of the common people during the depression and the way the big corporations oppressed them yada yada." And there is some truth to that. But he was an artist and activist, not a journalist. I assume you've read Guthrie's autobiographical writings and a wide selection of his song lyrics.
