Recorded in 1944 and 1945, 'The Asch Recordings' are possibly Woody Guthrie's most famous recordings, conducted over a series of days by Moses "Moe" Asch in
New York City. The songs recorded by Asch comprise the bulk of Guthrie's original material and several traditional songs. They were issued on a variaty of labels over the years since under the labels Asch, Asch-Stinson, Asch-Signature-Stinson, Disc, Folkways and Verve/Folkways. The tracks for Guthrie's Dust Bowl Ballads, Songs to Grow on for Mother and Childand Nursery Dayswere from this session.
Smithsonian Folkwayslabel repackaged and arranged these sessions in a series of 4 discs from 1997 - 1999, this is the most current release of these recordings.
