Woody At 100: The Woody Guthrie Centennial Collection (4CD Box Set)

"Woody Guthrie wrote songs that became the soundtrack of an era and permanent fixtures of American identity. His early Dust Bowl ballads, along with more than 3,000 work songs, union and labor songs, political and philosophical songs, anti-war songs, anti-fascist songs, love songs, and children's songs marked the pulse of hard-hit people in times of economic depression and war.

Many people have embraced This Land Is Your Land as America's second national anthem. Woody was ordinary, yet extraordinary a traveler, itinerant worker, radio performer, military enlistee, thinking man, gifted visual artist, husband and father, and prolific writer who left his mark on music, culture, and politics. 

He struggled with family tragedies, poverty, and personal demons. The 150-page book contains 57 tracks on three CDs, including Woody's most important recordings, 21 previously unreleased performances, and six never-before-heard original songs.

Richly illustrated with photos, artifacts, and Woody's visual art and lyrics plus extensive essays on Guthrie and his songs Woody at 100 commemorates and displays the genius of one of the greatest songwriters, musicians, and visual artists of the 20th century."
