A solid session from Woody Guthrie recorded in 1940, his first for the RCA label. Many of his classics here. A lot of songs about the dust bowl, so it feels thematic. Glad to have this version which comes with two additional recordings from that session.

I have a version of this lp that I cannot find already listed. It has the same catalog # (FH 5212) as other versions, but the label is white. Label looks similar to other Folkways versions other than it being white and the address being 632 Broadway. Anyone have any info on this version? The record is in near mint condition and doesn't look like it has been played hardly any, if any.

I have the original press with a printed black and white back with a photo, and liner notes. Then I have what most Folkways record sleeves look like with the standard sleeve. Definitely the later is a second press. Should be made a note of when purchasing this.
