The Rounder set is limited to just 5,000 copies and contains practically all previously unissued material. There are six CDs. The first four contain the complete Library of Congress Recordings made by Alan Lomax. Unlike the Jelly Roll Morton LoC recordings that Rounder released years ago, Guthrie brings his guitar, rather than the piano, and he doesn't tap his foot while playing - which is what Morton did and it's often difficult to listen to the JRM recordings because of that. Woody is engaging and tells some great stories I've never heard. CDs 5 and 6 include the BPA recordings as well as War Effort songs from radio transcriptions. He even appeared on two programs titled "Jazz in America". This is followed by a group of "demos" Woody made on the subject of venereal disease and finally a radio drama titled "The Lonesome Traveler". But there is more to the set. There is a wonderful 60-minute DVD of the documentary "Roll On Columbia" about Woody being hired to create songs for the Bonneville Dam Project . The film was made at the University of Oregon in 2002. The set includes a 60page booklet written by Rounder co-founder Bill Nowlin. This is a condensed version of the 258-page book which is available as a full length PDF on one of the CDs.Read more ›
