Woody Guthrie's Birthday
Over at The Inverse Square, Thomas Levenson has a nice, small compilation of Woody Guthrie tunes for Guthrie's birthday, plus a follow-up post. It's neat to hear Woody's "Tom Joad" followed by Bruce Springsteen's underrated, haunting "Ghost of Tom Joad." As Pete Seeger would say, that's part of the folk tradition.
