..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.
