On October 22nd, Rounder Records will release a six-CD set titled American Radical Patriot, celebrating the life and work of Woody Guthrie. The release will make Guthrie's complete Library of Congress recordings available in their entirety for the first time and will also contain a DVD, 60-page booklet, and even a 78-RPM 10-inch vinyl record with Bob Dylan's performance of "VD City" and Guthrie singing "The Biggest Thing That Man Has Ever Done." Now you can also take an exclusive first listen to an early, grainy version of "Pastures of Plenty." Soaked in white noise, Guthrie's drawl buzzes around simple but eerie guitar plucks, giving the track a chilling feel of dire yearning.
