Hey guys!

I've got a problem. I live in Russia and nobody heard of Woody Guthrie here, therefore I cannot find any records of Woody to buy. Can anybody send me all records in mp3 recorded on dvd? There's no other way (if there is please let me know).

Please write to comments if you are able to help me.

This song is Copyrighted in U.S., under Seal of Copyright #154085, for a period of 28 years, and anybody caught singin it without our permission, will be mighty good friends of ourn, cause we don't give a dern. Publish it. Write it. Sing it. Swing to it. Yodel it. We wrote it, that's all we wanted to do.

This community's kind of dead. Anyone got any Woody news?

I hate a song that makes you think that you are not any good.
I hate a song that makes you think that you are just born to lose. Bound to lose. No good to nobody. No good for nothing. Because you are too old or too young or too fat or too slim too ugly or too this or too that. Songs that run you down or poke fun at you on account of your bad luck or hard traveling.
I am out to fight those songs to my very last breath of air and my last drop of blood. I am out to sing songs that will prove to you that this is your world and that if it has hit you pretty hard and knocked you for a dozen loops, no matter what color, what size you are, how you are built, I am out to sing the songs that make you take pride in yourself and in your work.
And the songs that I sing are made up for the most part by all sorts of folks just about like you.

Hi Everyone! [Dec. 23rd, 2005|12:07 am]

I work a crappy customer service gig (which is actually far superior as far as customer service gigs go.)
In order to pass the time, one day i brought in one of the biggest books i could find which is
"Woody Guthrie" "A Life by Joe Klein". This book gives me something to look forward to and fills me head with useless trivia, as well as informing me about stuff I am intrested in, or want to know about.
Obviously I was intrested enough in Woody to buy this book, but honetly didn't know much about him aside from a couple of songs and that he was somehow "in-floo-en-shul" on what we now refer to as folk music.

I've always been a fan of folk music since my bf introduced me to a scottish folk musician named Dick Gaughan, and am a giant lover of the orginal blues, bluegrass etc. It is just recently I have found myself drawn to "folk" folk music, and through the aid of this book I guess I am gaining a new respect for it, and Woody.
Anyways... thats' my story...kinda.
Hi Everyone!

Does anyone know if Guthrie actually recorded the song "Deportees"? I've seen tons of cover versions of it, but can't find the actual Gutrie recording. If anyone has it, can they please upload it for me? I've loved the cover versions and really want to hear the original. Thanks :).

[music |Pete Seeger- which side are you on?]

Hey guys! I'm Joel. I love folk music of all kinds. I am really into Pete Seeger, and therefore Woody. I have a recording of Pete Seeger's Talking Union and in his intro he talks about when Woody was teaching him "the old talking blues" and then goes on to sing a bit from it "if you want to get to heaven let me tell you what to do..." I merely assumed this was called the talking blues and was the basis for all of Pete Seeger's talking union and Bob Dylan's dozens of talking blues all of the same tune. Anyway the point is I cannot find this original talking blues by anyone. Is there another name or can anyone suggest a place to find the song online? Thanks guys.

I know I posted a while back with a pen and ink drawing of Woody Guthrie, I forgot to post this one as well:



It is a little more abstract but is a children's book cover I did for an illustration class based on the song "Why, oh Why?" by Mr. Guthrie.  When I did it for the class my professor thought it was rather unique to do a Woody Guthrie children's book but since then I've become aware that there are already a few out there.

Hey, does anyone else want to be "mod" of this community? I think I'm going to be leaving livejournal but don't want to delete this because a Woody Guthrie community is necessary.

Just let me know if you're interested and I'll make you a moderator.

[music |Pretty Boy Floyd - Woody Guthrie]

I'm just starting to get into Guthrie, and I've been listening to him incessantly. Three things really got me into Woody: My huge obsession with Bob Dylan, who completely idolized Guthrie, my liking of Arlo's (Guthrie) music, and reading The Grapes of Wrath (same sort of subject material). I'm so glad I found a community for Woody, it's good to know that people still appreciate him :).
