"There's hardly a note that doesn't seem in perfect sync with Gutherie's pen." Washington Post

On the acclaimed Mermaid Avenue albums, Billy Bragg and Wilco put music to lyrics by folk legend Woody Guthrie for which he had not written music or made recordings. Tweedy and Bragg were "the perfect pair to conclude that Guthrie ... was a prophetic rock-and-roller with a whole lot to say," said the New York Times. "All he needed was a band and a little freedom."

This original volume, which includes a duet with Natalie Merchant and Bragg, earned a Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Folk Album. The double LP, 180-gram vinyl reissue was pressed at Pallas in Diepholz, Germany.

Wonderful classic arrangements of songs by Woody Guthrie. Bragg/Wilco along with Natalie Merchant bring a fresh new life to them! Pressed at Pallas in Germany, mastered by Grundman and cut by Chris Bellman. Needless to say you are in for a treat!
