In 1960, after half a decade in European exile and threatened by the approach of his 30th birthday, perhaps drawn as well by the myth of the Kennedy Camelot on his native shores, Ramblin' Jack Elliott began preparing to return home. Fortunately for fans, the grand master of American folk music, Elliott, landed squarely in the lap of Prestige/International, then the East Coast bellwether label for folk and jazz. On his first exploratory expedition back home, he cut 14 legendary tracks by his ailing mentor Woody Guthrie, whose performing career already had been cut short by Huntingdon's Chorea. The legendary album that resulted was "Jack Elliott Sings the Songs of Woody Guthrie." In June 1961, after returning to the U.S. to stay, he cut another dozen tracks released by Prestige on the LP "Ramblin' Jack Elliott." With the absence only of Ray Charles' "I Love Her So/I Got a Woman," these first two Prestige albums are combined on this CD. The two later 1962 Prestige releases are featured on Fantasy's "Country Style/Live" CD. The Guthrie album was and is worth its weight in gold, enhanced considerably by accompinent not only from Elliot's guitar and mouth harp virtuosity but also by an unnamed country group with fiddle et al, a well-played musical suit followed by Elliott's late friend and fellow Guthrie protegé Cisco Houston for Vanguard three years later. The CD offers a number of Guthrie jewels not found easily elsewhere in Ramblin' Jacks's discography - works like "Tom Joad," "This Land is Your Land" and "Philadelphia Lawyer." In both albums on this combined CD one hears a young but very substantial Ramblin' Jack, making up to some extent in vitality for the still-lacking depth of prime vintage found in his 1980s and 1990s releases of works like "The Cuckoo" or "South Coast.Read more ›

I'm the proud owner of the original "Jack Elliott Sings the Songs of Woody Guthrie" vinyl LP, on the tiny Prestige label out of Bergenfield, NJ. I just picked up this gem for $20 at a record shop in Brooklyn. This is a great cover album; Elliott's voice captures the spirit of Woody on "So Long," "Talkin' Columbia," and "Pretty Boy Floyd." Any Guthrie collector should run out and buy this CD, they won't be disappointed.

Written by Dan Nelson age 12 (2004)

This is a good cd that you should buy. Jack does some great guitar playing on this album and the liner notes are very good. The first 14 songs are by Woody W. Guthrie and the rest are by other folks. There are some really good songs on this cd. Grand Coulee Dam, So Long It's Been Good To Know You, Candy Man, Railroad Bill ect. they blow me away every time I hear them. This is a cd any Woody Guthrie or Ramblin Jack fan's gotta have!

I have spent a fair amount of time in this space over past year running through the male folk singers who I listened to in my youth in the 1960's, at a time when that type of music was making one of its periodic revivals on the edges of the American musical scene. I have spilled much ink, appropriately so I think, on the continuing saga of Bob Dylan's influence on that period. I have also posed the question, a familiar one now to readers of this space about those who did, for one reason or another, not become "king of the hill" in the very competitive folk world of that period. The search for gold in that case being to snag a record contract and be heard by more than the fifty people in the audience of some back street Greenwich Village coffeehouse. The artist under review and one time very close Dylan associate, the cowboy aficionado (from the prairies of Brooklyn, I believe) Ramblin' Jack Elliot, fits into that category as one of the potential contestants.

One of the most important connecting strands that drove the folk revival of the early 1960's and from which all potential folk singers drew sustenance was the work of Woody Guthrie. Bob Dylan readily acknowledged that influence. Ramblin' Jack has made something of a career of continuing that legacy unsullied.

And what was at the core of Woody's influence? Well, a quick listen to any Woody ballad will make two things apparent- a devotion to telling the stories- in song- of ordinary people and of the humdrum topics of the day and telling those stories in a `talking blues' format. Dylan perfected those two points early in his career, and then moved on. Rambin' Jack stayed there. If there is a dispute about what these two artists owed to Woody's legacy that is the center of the dispute.

A very ruff and tumble voice, singing almost exclusively Woody Guthrie tunes. These are the dust bowl era songs which are great to listen too.
