Taj Mahal, Cissy Houston, Ramblin' Jack Elliott and other artists pay tribute to Woody Guthrie in their distinctive vocal interpretations of the legendary folk artist's funny and deeply moving songs about family and children, six of which have never before been recorded. Guthrie himself introduces and closes the album, tenderly speaking his 1947 welcome to a newborn, "Howdy, Little Newlycome." Other celebratory, whimsical and keenly observational songs include "Curly Headed Baby," "Dry Bed," "Sleepy Eye," "Don't You Push Me Down," and the now poignantly resonant, "My Daddy (Flies a Ship in the Sky)."

A treasure.
