Tales of ‘69
Discovered buried deep within the archives were the tracks for Arlo Guthrie's Tales of '69. Recorded from a live performance in the late Sixties just prior to Woodstock, Arlo offers some of his best storytelling with rate, riotous versions of Alice's Restaurant (involving Russian scientists, roaches, Scotch (TM) tape and missiles...)and The Unbelievable Motorcycle Tale.
This historical discovery also includes three never before released Guthrie songs: If Ever I should See the Mountain, Road to Everywhere, and Hurry to Me. These trippy acoustic gems capture perfectly the essence of those heady times.
Arlo's Tales of '69 showcases Guthrie's unsurpassed comedic delivery in song and is an extraordinary unearthed time capsule that exemplifies the spirit of the Sixties. Tales of '69 is Arlo in his own inimitable style and is nothing short of groovy.
