SONGS RECORDED BY WOODY GUTHRIE

Woody Guthrie had only a handful of opportunities to record his music. These rare sessions resulted in Woody's only releases and are mostly considered demo-quality in today's standards. However, we are grateful to Moses Asch, Alan Lomax, and Victor Records for giving Woody this opportunity, since he wasn't able to write sheet music and this is how we know Woody's musical intentions.
