Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Car, Car (Woody Guthrie)
I have in my hand a 6 track 45rpm disc by Rambling Jack Elliott "Kid's Stuff" children's songs by Woody Guthrie, recorded in London in November 1959 and issued in 1960 on the EMI label SEG 8046 for any collectors out there. One of the songs is 'Riding in my Car'.
Jack was the guy who introduced many in the UK to the work of Woody, one of his best albums which appeared on the Topic label was reading extracts from Woody's book 'Bound for Glory' and illustrating it with songs.
If you are a Jack Elliott collector these discs are definitely worth trying to get ahold of.
The Topic label is still in existence putting out excellent folk material and they do have a web site.
