Avis sur l’album

Folkways: The Original Vision was released in 1988 as a complement to the Columbia album Folkways: A Vision Shared (which featured modern performers doing interpretations of Leadbelly and Woody Guthrie songs), which in turn was done to help provide funds for the Smithsonian Institution to incorporate the Folkways Record Company into its archives.

This expanded version adds six more tracks and greatly extends the liner notes, making what was an impressive introduction to Guthrie and Leadbelly an even more impressive one.

Other highlights include Leadbelly's "Gallis Pole" (a furious and dynamic version of "The Maid Freed from the Gallows") and Guthrie's "Hobo's Lullaby" (which was actually written by Goebel Reeves, the so-called "Texas Drifter").

Woody Guthrie was the most important American folk music artist of the first half of the 20th century, in part because he turned out to be such a major influence on the popular music of the second half of the 20th century, a period when he himself was largely inactive. His greatest significance lies in his songwriting, beginning with the standard "This Land Is Your Land" and including such much-covered works as "Deportee," "Do Re Mi," "Grand Coulee Dam," "Hard, Ain't It Hard," "Hard Travelin'," "I...
