Doctor John Pastures of Plenty (Woody Guthrie)-public domain? (16) RE: Woody Guthrie song - 'public domain?' 20 Feb 01

Harold Leventhal, one of the trustees of the Guthrie estate, keep a very tight - and destructive hold - on Woody Guthrie material, only allowing Arlo and Pete Seeger record the material of which he held the copyright. He relented in later years realizing that this attitude would hardly keep Woody's memory or his songs alive and was certainly not in the Woody Guthrie spirit, as DaveO says above. I don't know what the position is now. Dr John
