Long Ways to Travel: The Unreleased Folkways Masters, 1944-1949

These 17 powerful songs by Guthrie, some sung with his comrade Cisco Houston, were carefully selected from dozens of unreleased Guthrie masters. Extensively annotated by fellow Oklahoman and Guthrie scholar Guy Logsdon, this collection reaffirms Guthrie's unique place in American music. Includes Harriet Tubman's Ballad, Along in the Sun and the Rain, and Talking Centralia. Compliled by Jeff Place and Guy Logsdon. "The breadth of Guthrie's ability to entertain and enrapture his audience is clearly represented on these 17 tracks." — Sing Out
