Buffalo Skinners: The Asch Recordings, Vol. 4

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jeff Burger
This fourth and final volume of recordings Woody Guthrie made for Folkways and other small independent labels is just as remarkable as its predecessors. This time around, the focus is primarily on cowboy/Western music, and Guthrie -- who is accompanied by Cisco Houston on many of the 26 tracks -- proves himself a master of the genre.

Also excellent is the 36-page accompanying booklet, which completes the biographical sketch started on volumes one through three and includes extensive notes on each track.
