A product of the hippie/protest movement of the mid-'60s, Arlo Guthrie, son of perennial folk icon Woody Guthrie, found himself with not so much a hit as a whole movement on his hands with the eponymous 18-minute saga of his arrest for littering and its deleterious effect on his chances of being selected for active duty in the Vietnam War. "Alice's Restaurant" may have lost some of its counter-culture appeal over the years, but its story of blinkered officialdom is as relevant today as it was when it was first performed.
Though few of the other cuts match it in terms of sheer hummability, ALICE'S RESTAURANT contains several understated high points, notably "Highway in the Wind" and "I'm Going Home," both fine examples of mid-'60s folk pop. "The Motorcycle Song" is another instance of Guthrie's talent for constructing almost childishly simple yet fiendishly catchy melodies, a skill he obviously inherited from his father.
