As Ken Burns Series Opens

Woody Guthrie's tribute at death of FDR, "Dear Mrs. Roosevelt."   Or as Woody put it, "I could see he was a cripple/but he taught my soul to walk."   The most famed version came from Bob Dylan--backed by The Band before they were officially The Band--in Woody tribute concert at Carnegie Hall in 1967, Bob's first appearance after his motorcycle accident, which re-assured fans that he had not died.  Here it is with the boys, especially Richard Manuel key on piano, in support.

love the Dylan cover! Roosevelt in many ways our greatest president and an extraordinarily complex man. We are rarely shown more then a unterly transparent picture of him in any portrayal.
