Woody recorded for a variety of labels, but the real meat of his repertoire rests in the 300 or so songs he recorded for Mo Asch's Folkways label. And now that classic material is finally coming out on CD in four volumes, of which this is the first and probably the best witness this list of songs: This Land Is Your Land (unreleased and "hit" versions); Grand Coulee Dam; Philadelphia Lawyer; Hobo's Lullaby; Pastures of Plenty; Do-Re-Mi; Hard, Ain't It Hard; Going Down the Road Feeling Bad; Jesse James; I Ain't Got Nobody, and 15 more. 72 annotated minutes.

PARADES AND PANORAMAS is a celebration of American poet Carl Sandburg's the American Songbag (1927), a meticulously indexed and illstrated book described in the introduction as "280 ballads, hobo songs, spirituals, steamboat, railroad and lumberjack songs, close harmony ditties, colonial songs, love songs." in his varied and rough-hew 21st century folk style, Zanes revives 25 of these selections with his various collaborators to bring these songs forward in time with a graceful handmade modern folk style. PARADES AND PANORAMAS is luxuriously packaged with a 60-page booklet offering lyrics, chords, blurbs about the songs and historical photos of musicians to help make the point that playing music was once much more integrated into American society than it is today.

Nickel Creek

This Side

CD: $11.98 Buy

MP3 Album: $9.99 Download

Whereas Nickel Creek's debut album established the young California trio at the progressive vanguard of traditional bluegrass, this ambitious, risky follow-up finds their acoustic artistry straying far afield. Mandolin player Chris Thile and the Watkins siblings--guitarist Sean and fiddler Sara--continue to impress with their intuitive instrumental interplay and lush vocal harmonies. Sean Watkins's title cut achieves the sprightliest blend of traditional bluegrass instrumentation and contemporary pop craft, while the ruminative melancholy of "Hanging by a Thread" and "Green and Gray" sound as though Thile has been listening to a lot of Elliott Smith (and reading the published poetry of Jewel). The album also features Pavement's "Spit on a Stranger," Carrie Newcomer's "Should've Known Better," and a traditional British ballad, "House Carpenter." However, much of the collection's original material lacks the maturity to match the trio's musical gifts, as songs incorporating influences ranging from neo-psychedelia to alt pop often suffer from self-consciousness. Kindred-spirit producer Alison Krauss plainly gave the project a long leash, and the results can be viewed as either sophomore slump or creative growth spurt--or perhaps both.

John Prine

Fair and Square

CD: $14.98 Buy

MP3 Album: $9.99 Download

Quintessential American singer/songwriter John Prine returns with FAIR & SQUARE. With the occasional wheezing accordion, curlicue electric guitar parts, quick-wristed mandolins, billowing B-3 pads and puddles of pedal steel guitar, the rough-voiced singer/songwriter's first self-produced record is a homey affair that draws generously from the palette of traditional American music, be it folk, bluegrass, shuffles, vintage rock & roll, torch, country for an amalgamation that would be at home on any Wurlitzer in a whiskey-soaked tavern with beer signs flicker from age and the walls stained deeper than sepia from the years of constant smoke.

Reintroduce yourself to the Smithsonian Folkways essentials. More than 15 years ago, FOLKWAYS: THE ORIGINAL VISION was one of the first album released by a then fledgling Smithsonian Folkways label. It was conceived and sequenced to complement FOLKWAYS: A VISION SHARED, a benefit/tribute album consisting of 14 reinterpretations of Woody Guthrie and Lead Belly songs by a cross-section of some of popular music's top stars at the time. Now, with the re-release of this historic album on it's 15th anniversary, Smithsonian Folkways expands upon the original concept with the addition of 6 bonus tracks, and enhances it with stunning new packaging and newly extended notes.
