There’s an excellent Wilco/Billy Bragg version as well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wyjNRmSPVMM
You know, you could take that post title two ways when it shows up in RSS… and I did. ‘Now why would Cory have a hate-on for Woody?’ Clicking through cleared it up of course.
Curious album art on that MP3.
posted this last night to twit: ”Some will rob you with a six-gun, And some with a fountain pen”, Woody Guthrie, Pretty Boy Floyd http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_nPA57rpr4&feature=youtube_gdata_player #ows h/t @WREK
Mr. Guthrie, I’m afraid that your instrument constitutes a clear and present Health and Safety threat to fascists among the public. Come with us please.
Sad to say, it’s been fifty years and some since Woody wrote his songs and the fascists are still going strong.
This is damn near the best post I’ve seen on this site in a long while.
I was listening to the Weavers and Pete Seeger recently and stumbled on this gem that sums up perfectly the current financial situation: “Banks of Marble” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZzTT5fXquTo
I’ve been listening to “Biko” these last few days. Over and over.
