    "How Could you people give this a negative score? The #^$#s your problem?

    It's Woody Guthrie and he is a legend. It may not be your musical bag but show some respect."

    If Guthrie sometimes plods wearily, betweenwhiles you get a hot stew of the laconic anger and irony that inspired the Seeger-Dylan-Springsteen-Bragg-and-beyond heritage. [Dec 2013, p.101]
