A NOTE FROM NORA GUTHRIE -

"I remember first hearing these recordings about two years ago. Michael Creamer called and told me the incredible story of their discovery - in Brooklyn no less! Well, my curiosity was awfully peaked and I couldn't wait to have a listen.

My first impression was. Wow! Just the fact that I could hear the music so clearly was 'wow' enough! But then, this soft flow of old feelings followed, as I heard my father's voice start to fill the room and I absolutely remembered it, and then he was right there with me. Wow. And then I heard and remembered Cisco, and Sonny, as if they were sitting right there on the orange couch in our living room. I'm sitting there too, watching old friends comfortably watching each other, easily playing along together. There they are. Wow.

These recordings are treasures. To sit and listen, is to sit with Woody and his crew. And you become a part of that crew, and you hear how they listen to each other's voices, how they lean in to connect their rhythms and harmonies. It's achingly human, simple and direct yet full of spirited words and ideas. You can hear so much; the man, his friends, his words, his times, his passions, his angers, his family, his government, his home, his road.

It's very, very strange. The more time goes by, the clearer Woody's voice gets."
