    Personnel: Woody Guthrie (vocals, guitar).
    This 12-track budget-priced compilation on the Collectables label is a bit of a hodgepodge, made up of a variety of songs in different styles from all eras of Woody Guthrie's long and prolific career. As such, it might be expendable to Guthrie experts and not be the best starting point for the complete Guthrie novice, but for new fans who have heard some but not much of Guthrie's music, WORRIED MAN BLUES provides an overview of some of his less-anthologized songs.
    The album starts with a wonderful version of the traditional New England ballad "Gypsy Davy," followed by the playful "More Pretty Girls Than One." From there, the collection proceeds through Guthrie's gangster saga "Pretty Boy Floyd," the traditional blues "Poor Boy," and other examples of Guthrie's immense stylistic range and interpretive skills. Through disappointingly brief, WORRIED MAN BLUES is an excellent collection.
