Recording (P)1992 by Audio Literature; Copyright ©1971 by Marjorie Guthrie
...always shockingly immediate and real....A book to make novelists and sociologists jealous. (The Nation)
Yes, Arlo's voice is expressive, and easily mistaken for Woody's.
Woody's ability to live among the rich, or live with nothing, and his drive to be true to himself.
It was very smooth, and expressive. There was no impression that he was reading you a book - he was simply telling you his story.
Yes, I started out listening in my truck, but didn't drive enough to finish it in one day, so listened to the rest of it while mowing my lawn.
IF you have warm and fuzzy feelings for early 20c folk music, or remember fondly Woody Guthrie and his influence on the 60's counter culture.... then you won't be disappointed.
the audio is a little low in this tape, I had to have my car speakers jacked way up and the windows cracked a smidge just to balance audio and a hot car. Great book fantastic imagery and settings, a great read.
Life is too short to so many good books.
A inspired life told by the author himself, and very well performed by his son, Arlo Guthrie, in the audiobook version.
The Guthrie`s travels as a hobo by train.
