Alexander from London, United KingdomWho if not Guthrie was the darling of the American left? Communist fellow traveller; he wrote a despicable song about Lindbergh.
Like Satpal Ram - see the website I set up; Linda Carty - see my Youtube video and main website; Mumia Abu-Jamal, Hurricane Carter and James Hanratty, they were guilty as Hell.
Oh, and like Amanda Knox!
Read the legal judgments and documentation before you fall for the propaganda of campaigners who have no commitment whatsoever to truth.
Barbara from Dallas, TxThis seems unnecessarily biased. Although their guilt is not clear, and is even probable, the fact that they were not given due process of law by any means and were subject to extreme amounts of bias is indisputable in all of the literature, including Montgomerey's book. Plus, "the darling of the American musical left"...come on, dude.
Whether the 'resulting songs were admittedly weak' is yours and Guthrie's opinion. They were Guthrie's opinion because they were a labor of love, music which he considered the most 'important dozen songs' of his career. They did not live up to his standards after two years of passion, but he still valued them incredibly.
