SANTA MONICA, Calif., Sept. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- As the centennial of his birth approaches, the words of Woody Guthrie – America's greatest folksinger – seem more relevant than ever on Note of Hope, due out tomorrow on 429 Records. The Amazon.com Mp3 Store (www.Amazonmp3.com) is celebrating its release by making it the "Daily Deal" today only. Fans can purchase Note of Hope for $3.99 at:
The collection features Jackson Browne, Ani DiFranco, Kurt Elling, Michael Franti, Nellie McKay, Tom Morello, Van Dyke Parks, Madeleine Peyroux, Lou Reed, Pete Seeger, Studs Terkel, Tony Trischka, Rob Wasserman and Chris Whitley. Conceived by Nora Guthrie, Woody's daughter, Note of Hope's 12 tracks are based on the unpublished words and writings penned by Guthrie between 1942 and 1954 while he was living in New York City and Brooklyn. Each artist in turn set the lyrics to music and recorded their song. Jackson Browne's radio single from the album, "You Know the Night," is already topping AAA radio charts across the U.S.
"From the epic brilliance of Jackson Browne's 'You Know The Night' to one of the late great Chris Whitley's final recordings ('On The High Lonesome'), 'Note Of Hope' is an album that needs to be exposed," says Mike Marrone, Program Director of Sirius XM's The Loft. "My personal favorite is Kurt Elling's riveting 'Peace Pin Boogie' but we're playing the bulk of the disc to great audience response at The Loft."
