Dust Bowl Ballads was the most successful album Woody Guthrie made. Not only did it gain him public acclaim, but these songs and performances possess extraordinary unity. 180 gram audiophile vinyl. Includes insert with liner notes, background story and exclusive pictures. This is the album that Inspired Dylan, Cash and Springsteen. Woody Guthrie became the voice of his people and in a way that remains intelligible many years later. He set a standard to which many of today's best songwriters still aspire. Like Dylan, Springsteen and KRS-One, he gave his listeners stories and characters that help them better understand themselves.
Listening to Woody Guthrie's Dust Bowl Ballads is something akin to an American History lesson. On the other hand, it's also something like looking into a mirror to see our own times. While, mercifully, we are not experiencing a dust bowl disaster, we seem to be sharing many of the same social difficulties. Guthrie writes songs to express the miseries of poverty, greed and even the kind of criminality that we have come to see from Wall Street brokers and powerful banking interests. Some things perhaps never change.

Lassoo 3. Woody Guthrie - Dustbowl Ballads. 7 years ago 7 years ago. Folk. Probably one of Woody's best albums, this quintessential work proves that Guthrie was a true minstrel of the other face of America, the one that you can't find in history books: tales of poverty, migration, storms, illness, hunger and harsh criticism of the American government. These are Guthrie's tales about one of the most dire periods in rural American history, the Dust Bowl era, in which Guthrie himself along with 1000's of others were driven from their homes because of the mass dust storms.
Indeed, "Tom Joad" is nothing less than the plot of the book set to music. The story begins, as "The Great Dust Storm (Dust Storm Disaster)" has it, "On the fourteenth day of April of 1935," when a giant dust storm hits the Great Plains, transforming the landscape.
