Ramblin' Jack Elliott Sings Woody Guthrie, Jimmie Rodgers, and Cowboy Songs

Ramblin' Jack Elliott Sings Woody Guthrie, Jimmie Rodgers, and Cowboy Songs

Ramblin' Jack Elliott (born 1931) was interested in cowboys from a young age; he ran away from his home in Brooklyn, New York, to join a rodeo at age 14.

But he was also inspired by Woody Guthrie--he lived with the Guthrie family for a time, mastering Woody's vocal and guitar style so completely that Woody supposedly exclaimed, "Jack sounds more like me than I do!"

Jimmie Rodgers (1897–1933), of Meridian Mississippi, was one of the first country music icons, but only after his worsening tuberculosis made it too difficult for him to continue as a railroad worker.

This recording, issued as a CD in 1994, combines two LPs released more than 30 years earlier—one of Woody Guthrie and Jimmie Rodgers songs and the other of cowboy songs.
