Lonesome Valley - A Collection of American Folk Music

This album of "second takes" by Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, and others is a collector’s gem. The original liner notes—which include lyrics for each song—write, "On re-hearing, the spirit of the performances was so good that Folkways felt that it would be a shame not to have its many friends hear them."
