The Asch Recordings

The Asch Recordings, recorded in 1944 and 1945, are possibly Woody Guthrie's most famous recordings. The record was 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 variety 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 Songs to Grow on for Mother and Child and Nursery Days were from this session.
