Editorial Reviews

Joel Rafael has been a featured performer at the annual Woody Guthrie Folk Festival since its inception in 1998. Considered a natural and pre-eminent interpreter of Guthrie's music, he has released two albums honoring Guthrie's song. The Songs of Woody Guthrie, Volume 1 and Volume 2, together encompass Rafael's graceful and authentic takes on twenty-four Guthrie - and two Guthrie-inspired - compositions. Rolling Stone, in its review of Woodyboye, noted, "Don't miss the moving version of Guthrie's 'Stepstone,' which finds Rafael sharing vocal duties with Jackson Browne & Arlo Guthrie.

I had not encountered Joel Rafael before, and more or less stumbled on this album as an Amazon MP3. I took a chance on it, despite the single negative review, and was blown away. The performances are consistently smooth and mellow, and not unduly 'folksy', and you can imagine Woody Guthrie himself sounding almost exactly like this if only it were possible to get hold of 'modern' recordings of his performances. Another reviewer has taken away stars because of a marketing issue, while admitting that the music itself is unmatched as an evocation of Woody Guthrie's heritage, and I think that rating tactic is unfair to the audience. The music in this album is outstanding. If you admire Guthrie's contribution to the American folk (and more) music genre, and want to hear his work performed with respect, skill, and artistry, buy this album.

Decided to play this as part of my fourth of July Celebration. Woody Guthrie was as good as it gets and Joel Rafaels's interpretations are nothing less then brilliant.

Rafael interprets the songs of Woody Guthrie in a respectful manner. His style in probably 'brighter' and more lively than Woody's, with a great band to back him up, and his tenor voice doesn't sound at all like Woody's, which gives him freedom to bring his own personality into the music. Personally, I prefer his interpretations to Woody's own recordings, which are now old and mono and scratchy, with usually just him and a guitar. On the other hand, when I listen to Woody, I hear the personal experiences he had with unions, immigrants, civil rights, etc., and his direct empathy, which is something Rafael can't match because well, he isn't Woody. But overall, this double CD album is a must for any Woody fan.

A 2-CD album, Joel Rafael gives us a rare treat- probably the best presentation of Woody Guthrie's songs I have heard. The majority of lyrics and tunes are unvarnished Woody. Joel and "friends" (for a lack of a better term) evoke the conditions surrounding Woody that animated his songs. Listen to the interplay of instruments and voices. The use of percussion is unique. Each song captures a different facet of Woody and his world. Joel's mastery is the innate skill to combine the facets, pulling in voices, instruments or rhythm to demand our attention today. This is consummate acoustic music. Finally, do not overlook the booklet that comes with the album. It is worth the price of admission.
