Re: [ARSCLIST] Article on processing a Woodie Guthrie wire recording
Thanks for posting, but I actually have an old radio broadcast of Woody
with some of his friends live in the studio, incl. Cisco Houston and
It's interesting though that the release came from a wire recording, as
many of the Guthrie recordings at the Smithsonian Folkways are on glass
platters. I cleaned the glass, by hand, and then carefully transferred
the recordings to digital and analogue, when I was in Graduate School
serving an internship at Folkways.

I hope this article is of interest to some. Is it indeed the only known
recording by Guthrie???
Short, 44, is part of a team that has received a Grammy nomination in
best historical album category for a tricky restoration of a wire
- an analog recording in which the sound is magnetically stored on a
spool - of a 1949 concert by Woody Guthrie. It's the only-known
a live performance by the folk music legend.
