Thread Name: James Talley sings Woody Guthrie
Subject: RE: James Talley sings Woody Guthrie
He opened for Jerry Jeff Walker back in the early 60's. Had two albums out on Capitol at that time.....But they didn't do much to push him. I guess they didn't think he was country enough and the I guess he wasn't folk enough... Like Rick says, give him a listen. I like his takes on Woody Guthrie very much.....Nice and laid back and acoustic...... He still lives in Nashville and apparently hasn't been ruined by the Nashville "Plague"...... Frank of Toledo
