AllMusic Review by

A budget collection that is really only a brief look at the music of Woody Guthrie, and comparable collections can probably be found at similar prices with better material. Still, it's hard to argue with the inclusion of the standards "Worried Man Blues," "John Henry" and the classic "Pretty Boy Floyd." The quality of the recordings isn't the greatest, either, with harmonica drowning out vocals at times, and certain tracks are included that wouldn't be of interest to the average Guthrie fan.
