    Every 100 Years - The Woodie Guthrie Centennial Songbook

    2012 would have been the 100th birthday of American singer/songwriter Woody Guthrie. To mark his extraordinary achievements in songwriting, we are releasing this souvenir centennial songbook. Woody Guthrie wrote over 3,000 songs in his lifetime, yet only300 or so were ever recorded. At the invitation of Guthrie's daughter, Nora Guthrie, contemporary singer/songwriters have set music to Guthrie's previously unpublished lyrics. Musicians such as Billy Bragg, Wilco, Dropkick Murphys, Jonatha Brooke, Jay Farrar, Tom Morello, Lou Reed, The Klezmatics, Hans-Eckardt Wenzel, Madeleine Peyroux, Janis Ian, Sarah Lee Guthrie & Johnny Irion, and Woody's son, Arlo Guthrie, have shown us how timeless Woody's words are. Every 100 Years is a compilation of 00 Woody Guthrie songs that run the gamut from work songs, love songs and union & protest songs, to topical songs and children's songs. The book features his classics such as: This Land Is Your Land  Jesus Christ  DoRe Mi  Pretty Boy Floyd Roll On Columbia  Pastures of Plenty  Deportee  Riding in My Car  and more, as well as hits from the next generation of Guthrie co-authors: California Stars  I'm Shippin' Up to Boston  The Jolly Banker Way Over Yonder in the Minor Key  Hoodoo Voodoo  Ease My Revolutionary Mind  Ingrid Bergman  My Peace  Mermaid's Avenue  Happy Joyous Hanukkah  Every 100 Years  and many others. Includes a preface from Howie Richmond, founder of The Richmond Organization - Guthrie's publisher, as well as other commentary from friends, family, and Woody himself along with photos and facsimiles of Guthrie's original drawings and hand-written lyrics.
