Moses Asch was not only the founder of Folkways Records, but also a tireless preserver of traditional folk idioms and performers. Like John and Alan Lomax, he often traveled the country making field recordings of traditional folk songs, often along with reminiscences and anecdotes by the performers. By the time these recordings were made in a New York studio in the mid-'40s, Woody Guthrie was not only already a well-known performer and songwriter, he was nearing the end of his public career due to failing health. However, Asch treated these sessions just as he did his field recordings, neither adding to or taking from these classic songs as Guthrie chose to record them. Sometimes solo, sometimes with the backing of folks like Brownie McGhee, Sorry Terry, Pete Seeger, and Cisco Houston, Guthrie performs folk and blues standards with his characteristic dry wit and unerring gift for interpretation. This collection is essential.
