Wax Love present a reissue of Woody Guthrie's Dust Bowl Ballads, originally released as a full LP in 1964. This is the first record that "The Oklahoma Cowboy" made in NYC for Alan Lomax, after his arrival in 1940, as part of his work for the Library of Congress, taped on April 26th and May 3rd. Originally released as three separate 78 rpm records, these are Guthrie's tales about one of the most dire periods in rural America, the Dust Bowl era. 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. This record kills fascists.
