Backstage Manager(inactive) Looking for a particular recording of 'Deportees' (50) RE: Recording of Woody's 'Deportee' (UK) ? 18 Jun 04


There are no recordings of Woody singing "Deportees." He wrote the words, circa 1948, and it was set to music by Marty Hoffman in 1958. As Ron noted, Woody would kind of recite the words.

There are many, many recordings. SOme as "Deportee," some as "Deportees," and some as "Plane Wreck at Los Gatos."

Artists with currently in-print recorded versions include: Joan Baez; Tom Williams; The Byrds; Joel Rafael; Barbara Dane; Arlo Guthrie; Judy Collins; Cisco Houston; Priscilla Herdman; Peter, Paul & Mary w/Ramblin' Jack Elliott; Peter, Paul & Mary w/Tom Paxton; David Rodriguez; The Short Sisters; Nanci Griffth w/Lucinda Williams, Tish Hinojosa, Odetta, Steve Earle, John Stewart; the Highwaymen (Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson & Waylon Jennings); James Talley; The Vanaver Caravan; Bruce Springsteen; Mike Beck; Hoyt Axton & Arlo Guthrie.

I'm sure some of those are available in the UK
I'm sure some of those recordings
