I wonder if the Guthrie family (whom I believe owns the rights to a lot of his work, and I would bet his name) (his daugther Sara is the person who adminsters his estate?) gets royalties. Martin certainly didn't use his name without permission. Mad, is conjecture. But they're not stupid.
Royalties. A word in plural or singular not usualy associated with the senior Mister Gurthie's politics. But certainly with his place in American folkmusic.
Madness on Martin's part. Or marketing. I wonder who contacted who first. Now we wait to see who buys one and reviews it here or EZFolk or someplace.
Too rich (another non-Guthrie word) for my blood.
