Pre-Order: Woody at 100: The Woody Guthrie Centennial Collection
In honor of the Woody Guthrie Centennial, a year-long celebration of Woody’s 100th birthday, Smithsonian Folkways presents an in-depth commemorative collection of songs, photos and essays on one of America’s most treasured 20th-century icons.
Woody at 100: The Woody Guthrie Centennial Collection is a 150-page large-format book containing three CDs with 57 tracks, including Woody’s most important recordings such as the complete version of "This Land Is Your Land," "Pretty Boy Floyd," "Pastures of Plenty," "Hard Travelin’," "Jesus Christ," "I Ain’t Got No Home in This World Anymore," and "Riding in My Car." The set also contains 21 previously unreleased performances and six never-before-heard original songs, including Woody’s first known — and recently discovered — recordings from 1939.
Woody at 100: The Woody Guthrie Centennial Collection will be available in stores on July 10, 2012, but you can pre-order a special package, including an instant album download, limited-edition poster, and T-shirt.
