Various - Folkways A Vision Shared-A Tribute To Woody Guthrie And Leadbelly (1988) @320) MP3/Flac

I'm in a storng Woody Guthrie mood lately; I find a constant inspiration in his spirit and lyrics, now that his topical songs seem to have been written about the problems of today; isn't there a better proof about his timeless value? So, as an addition to the Bragg-Wilco upload based on his lyrics, I thought that it would be a good idea to upload this "proper" tribute to him as well. Furthermore it is also a brilliant tribute to Leadbelly, as well as a good reason to remember Don DeVito who passed away recently and was the producer of this album which had won him the Grammy for the Best Traditional Folk Recording in 1989. DeVito is mostly known as the producer of Bob Dylan's Desire and Blood on the Tracks lps. As a result Dylan could not be absent from this tribute to one of his idols contributing with, to my opinion, the best song of this compilation. Finally, Dylan and Emmylou Harris are the links with the Hank Williams tribute of the previous post.
