MP3 Album Deal: Woody Guthrie Tribute ‘Note Of Hope’
  |  @   |  

The MP3 album deal of the day over at Amazon today is Note of Hope – A Celebration of Woody Guthrie, a brand-new, all-star tribute to the folk singer, for only $3.99.

This is an Amazon exclusive version being released one day early and includes two extra tracks (14 songs in all) as well as the digital booklet. Songs performed by Jackson Browne, Lou Reed, Tom Morello, Ani DiFranco, and many more.

Conceived by Nora Guthrie, Woody’s daughter, Note of Hope‘s 12 tracks are based on the unpublished words and writings penned by Guthrie between 1942 and 1954 while he was living in New York City and Brooklyn. Each artist in turn set the lyrics to music and recorded their song. The collection features Jackson Browne, Ani DiFranco, Kurt Elling, Michael Franti, Nellie McKay, Tom Morello, Van Dyke Parks, Madeleine Peyroux, Lou Reed, Pete Seeger, Studs Terkel, Tony Trischka, Rob Wasserman and Chris Whitley. The release is the first in a series of events leading up to the 2012 centennial celebration of Guthrie’s birth.

The album will be released everywhere tomorrow, Tuesday, September 26, 2011. You can pre-order the 12-track CD version now.
