July 14 marked the would-be 100th birthday of legendary folk singer Woody Guthrie. To pay tribute to his hero, Beck released a cover of Guthrie’s “I Ain’t Got No Home In This World Anymore” from 1940’s Dust Bowl Ballads. Beck’s version was apparently recorded sometime in the mid-1990s, but it was never given an official release.
In celebration of Guthrie’s centennial, Smithsonian Folkways released Woody At 100: The Woody Guthrie Centennial Collection earlier this summer. Listen to Beck pay honor to the legend below. [P4K]
