Cisco Houston Sings Woody Guthrie

An Ad from Sing Out!

Woody Guthrie as sung by Cisco Houston

Henrietta Yurchenko of "American Record Guide" -- He sings Woody's songs with the same soft lilt and lovely musical quality he was known for back in the forties. It is truly said here of him "As you listen to the record, I think you will get the feeling that Cisco Houston is visiting with you in your home, singing for you, and with you, about as he would do if he had walked in, in person." This disc is a "must."

O.B. Brummell, "High Fidelity" -- Cisco made few records in recent years -- our loss, and now irreparable -- but in my opinion his true mellow baritone rang with all the vigor of American life ... Vanguard here presents, in superb reproduction, the ballads of a great folk poet sung by an outstanding singer.

Robert Shelton, "New York Times" -- A close listening to these Guthrie works, as beautifully interpreted by his longtime friend and traveling companion, will indicate why Guthrie is so highly revered.

Peter Welding, "Hi-Fi Stereo Review" -- This Vanguard tribute release seems to me to be the finest single-disc introduction to the remarkably vital and human songs of Guthrie.
