It also includes renditions of Utah’s songs by Kate Wolf, Rosalie Sorrels, and many others.
“Utah Phillips is surely one of the nation’s most unforgettable characters, as will be attested to by people all over the USA who have heard him, guitar in hand, hold forth on the ways of the world. What a joy now to have his “songbooks” available to anyone with a CD player. You will be going through it again and again.”—Pete Seeger
“Utah brings a message of defiance, disobedience, and solidarity . . . (and) reminds us of a history that we were not taught in schools and colleges. They tell us of people who, like us, seemed to be powerless before the might of corporations, but who struggled and fought back, and changed their lives.“—Howard Zinn, author of A People’s History of the United States
