His matter of fact performance captures the dissonance – the commingling sense of possibility and loss – at the heart of Guthrie’s original.
— Bill Friskics-Warren, The Nashville Scene

Probably the best tribute Woody Guthrie album ever!
— Jane Weber, Radio Slovenia

..hands down the best Guthrie tribute collection ever recorded.
— Bill Friskics-Warren, The Nashville Scene, 10/28/99

..In the lineage of Jimmie Rodgers, Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan ... Woody Guthrie and Songs of My Oklahoma Home ... is timeless. The 20 songs on the album not only stand up to the originals but also complete them, compensating for the recording deficiencies that make many of Guthrie's recordings hard to take in large doses.
— New York Times, 12/9/99
