During this period, the Almanac Singers, who had been rabidly anti-war until Germany invaded the Soviet Union in Junebecame rabidly pro-war, a stance that coincided perfectly with the mood of the U. As a result, they began to get offers from network radio shows, reaching their commercial peak on February 14,when they appeared on a program called This Is War broadcast on all four national radio networks.
Their political affiliations, however, made them unsuitable to the conventional entertainment business, just as Guthrie was individually. They turned down an offer to appear at the prestigious Rainbow Room, and their increasing recognition led to newspaper accounts of their ties to left-wing organizations including the Communist Party, which in turn led to the cancellations of other nightclub bookings and a proposed contract with Decca Records.
Guthrie, meanwhile, met Marjorie Greenblatt Mazia, a dancer with the Martha Graham dance troupe, with whom he began a romantic relationship, even though both of them were married to other people. Around the same time, he was signed by publishers E. Dutton to write his autobiography. While working on this book, he gradually lessened his involvement with the Almanac Singers.
In March, Guthrie's book Bound for Glory was published to favorable reviews. The same month, Mary Guthrie signed her divorce papers, which had the effect of making Guthrie eligible for the draft. When he received his draft notice, he joined the merchant marine as an alternative to going into the army, signing on with Cisco Houston to a ship that was part of a convoy taking supplies for an invasion of Italy.
The four-month trip began in June ; on September 13, the ship was torpedoed but managed to make it into port in Tunisia. Guthrie returned to New York in October, but could stay only 30 days before going on another merchant marine journey if he wanted to continue to avoid army service.
So, there was a trip along the Eastern seaboard a month later, and then in January a second journey across the Atlantic that lasted until March.
When he returned, Guthrie showed up at the offices of the small Asch Record Company and introduced himself to its owner, Moses Asch, who agreed to record him on an informal basis. Starting on April 16,Guthrie, sometimes accompanied by one or more musical associates including Houston, Sonny Terry, Leadbelly, and former Almanac Singers member Bess Hawes, began making what eventually added up to hundreds of recordings for Asch including, for the first time, "This Land Is Your Land.
Asch had no means of releasing such a torrent of material at the time. In MayGuthrie shipped out again on a merchant marine ship taking troops for the D-Day invasion of Europe.
After the soldiers were put ashore on Omaha Beach in early July, the ship hit a mine, but made it back to England, where Guthrie appeared on the BBC before heading back to the U. In September, Asch released the first of his Guthrie recordings on the various-artists album Folksay: American Ballads and Dances, followed by another various-artists album called Blues, and then, at the turn of the year, the solo album Woody Guthrie, consisting of three 78 rpm discs and including such songs as "Grand Coulee Dam" and "Jesus Christ.
Guthrie continued to record extensively for Asch in the early months of In March, he was again called to the draft and found that the merchant marine's union had tightened its requirements with regard to the political affiliations of its volunteers, such that he was no longer eligible. Thus, he LP) inducted into the army on May 7, That was also the day that Germany surrendered, but the war against Japan was still going on.
After undergoing basic training, Guthrie was posted to a series of army bases around the country. At one of them, he happened to hear on a jukebox Jack Guthrie's Capitol Records recording of "Oklahoma Hills," which peaked at number one on Billboard magazine's "Most Played Juke Box Folk Records" chart the precursor to the country singles chart for the first of six weeks on July 28, He discovered that Jack Guthrie had credited himself as songwriter.
Legal discussions ensued, and eventually "Oklahoma Hills" was co-credited to the two Guthrie cousins, who shared the songwriting royalties. On November 13,Guthrie married Marjorie Mazie, who had obtained a divorce from her first husband. He was discharged from the army the following month.
InGuthrie played concerts under the auspices of People's Songs, an organization founded by Seeger and other folksingers as a clearinghouse to promote political folk songs. The album was not released until Inspired by his daughter Cathy, Guthrie also had begun writing children's songs, and he I Aint Got No Home - Woody Guthrie - A Legendary Performer (Vinyl these for Asch as well, starting in February After being released later in the year on Asch's Disc Records label on the album Songs to Grow On: Nursery Days, these became among Guthrie's most popular recordings, and he made more of them.
Work Songs to Grow On followed in Tragically, Cathy Ann Guthrie died in another of the bizarre series of accidental fires associated with him on February 10, He was not present when the incident occurred. Although Guthrie himself had faded from national attention, his persona as a rambling folksinger was already beginning to become legendary.
This was suggested on January 10,when the musical Finian's Rainbow opened on Broadway for a run of performances. Sonny Terry had a part in the show, which featured a certain character named Woody, a free-spirited, guitar-playing ex-merchant seaman who helped lead a labor revolt. His younger brother Joady Ben Guthrie, who also became a performer, was born on December 25, Nora Lee Guthrie, Guthrie's seventh child, was born in January Guthrie, meanwhile, had be re-recording much of the material from the Dust Bowl Ballads albums and the Columbia River songs for Asch, resulting in a Disc album called Ballads from the Dust Bowl released on a new Asch label, Folkways Records, in October He was also at work on a new book about a trip he and his father had taken in search of a goldmine in the early '30s.
The book would not be published untilwhen it appeared under the title Seeds of Man. Moses Asch went bankrupt inan event that would have major implications for Guthrie's discography, since Asch's ex-partner, record store owner Herbert Harris of Stinson Records, held onto some of Guthrie's master recordings, as did a pressing plant that auctioned them to Pickwick Records. As Guthrie's popularity increased in the s, Stinson and Pickwick's Everest label, as well as Folkways, would issue competing Guthrie titles drawn from the recordings he had made in the '40s for Asch.
Since discovering that his mother had suffered from Huntington's disease shortly after her death, Guthrie had feared that he would inherit the illness, as he confided to friends on several occasions in the s and '40s. By the late '40s, he had begun to exhibit symptoms of the disease, although, since his behavior had always been idiosyncratic, they were not recognized as such by him or others, and tended to be ascribed to excessive drinking. His last major composition for which he wrote only the lyrics with the music later added by Martin Hoffman came in with "Deportees" aka "Plane Wreck at Los Gatos"I Aint Got No Home - Woody Guthrie - A Legendary Performer (Vinyl, an account of an incident in which a plane carrying immigrant workers crashed.
Meanwhile, his earlier songs were beginning to become generally popular. By lateGuthrie's erratic behavior had led to his separation from his wife. On January 7,he did a recording session for Decca Records as part of proposed contract with the label, but his performing skills had deteriorated noticeably; the contract was withdrawn, and the recordings have never been released.
This was Guthrie's last serious attempt to record, although there was a final session for Asch two years later that also proved fruitless. Guthrie was hospitalized on May 16,and was in and out of hospitals over the summer until a neurologist finally recognized his symptoms as Huntington's disease in September. Nevertheless, he was released and immediately moved to California, where he took up with a year-old art student, Anneke van Kirk Marshall, who left her new husband for him and traveled with him back to New York and then to Florida.
While staying on a friend's property there on June 10,Guthrie was severely burned in attempting to douse a campfire, crippling his right arm. Nevertheless, the couple took off again, stopping in Mexico in July so that Guthrie could be divorced. They married in December and moved to New York in January On February 22,Anneke Guthrie gave birth to Guthrie's eighth and last child, Lorina Lynn Guthrie, who would be put up for adoption after the couple LP) and divorced. On September 16,no longer able to function, Guthrie checked himself into Brooklyn State Hospital, where he had received his diagnosis two years earlier.
This was a voluntary commitment that allowed him to leave the hospital on weekends, which he spent with his ex-wife Marjorie Guthrie. On May 23,Guthrie checked himself out, intending to hit the road again, but within days he was arrested for vagrancy in New Jersey and involuntarily committed to Greystone Park Hospital, where he remained for five years, until Marjorie Guthrie was able to get him moved back to Brooklyn State, an easier commute from her home in Coney Island.
As Guthrie's physical condition deteriorated, however, his career blossomed. The Weavers, who had been forced to disband due to the Communist witch hunts of the early '50s, reunited in and began performing "This Land Is Your Land," which gained enormously in popularity. Guthrie himself attended, although he was of course unable to perform. The concert was one of the events that marked the start of the folk revival.
By the late '50s, with Folkways releasing albums of previously unheard Guthrie recordings, his songs became necessary to the repertoires of all the emerging folk performers. Several Guthrie songbooks were published during the early '60s, and in Born to Win, a collection of his writings edited by Robert Shelton, folk music critic for The New York Times, was published. Guthrie was moved to Creedmore State Hospital in Queens, NY, in July and put under the care of a doctor specifically studying Huntington's disease.
He died there on October 3,at the age of His death did not impede his career renaissance. New albums continued to be released. Albums chronicling the concerts were released in and reached the charts. Woody Sez, a book collecting his newspaper columns, was published infollowed in by Seeds of Man and a film adaptation of Bound for Glory starring David Carradine with an accompanying soundtrack album.
He was the subject of an off-Broadway musical bearing his name in It reached number 70 in the charts. Another musical based on Guthrie's life and music, Woody Guthrie's American Song, opened regionally in and produced a cast album. InBilly Bragg and Wilco combined to investigate the Guthrie files of unpublished lyrics, resulting in the release of Mermaid Avenue, their recordings of the resulting songs.
A second volume followed in Both albums charted in the Top The Asch recordings that had escaped to Stinson and Pickwick continued to appear, licensed to a variety of labels, a problem that was superseded as of the s by the year copyright limit on recordings in Europe, which eventually put all of Guthrie's recordings into the public domain there, resulting in a flood of unlicensed European reissues. While some of these discs were better than others, the Smithsonian Folkways and RCA Victor releases I Aint Got No Home - Woody Guthrie - A Legendary Performer (Vinyl superior renderings of the material.
Decades after Guthrie's death, his ragamuffin image, the blue-jean-wearing Everyman with a guitar on his back, had become an American archetype, and his songs, in some cases benignly reinterpreted, had become a permanent part of the American consciousness, whether it was a parent and child singing "Put Your Finger in the Air" without any idea who wrote it, or the Mormon Tabernacle Choir thundering "This Land Is Your Land," ignorant of its original socialist intent.
In this sense, he had proved himself a true folk artist, one whose creations had passed into the culture and seemed always to have been there. This record came from a record store called "Phantasmagoria" which was located in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
Phantasmagoria went out of business in Phantasmagoria used round colored stickers to indicate the price of the albums. They had a sign on the wall with the color sticker combinations for the customers to use so they knew the price of the albums.
Most of the albums still have these stickers on them, and in some rare cases, the stickers are written on. Some of the records have prices on them. This is the price you would have paid for the record in if you would have bought it at Phantasmagoria.
Please dont confuse these prices with their current value. All sealed albums are being sold as collectors items and cannot be returned due to manufacturers defects. It may be almost impossible to replace many of the sealed albums that I am selling.
