This is a various-artists set recorded at a charity fund raising concert at Carnegie Hall, January 20, 1968, held in memory of Woody Guthrie's then-recent death after years of illness. The Band performed with Bob Dylan on riveting versions of "I Ain't Got No Home," "Dear Mrs. Roosevelt," and "The Grand Coulee Dam." This was Bob Dylan's first public performance after the motorcycle accident. The Band were announced under some weird name (The Crackers?) because they still did not have an official name.

The Part 1 recording from 1968, was originally released on LP in 1972 by Columbia. A Part 2 LP, from a Guthrie memorial concert at the Hollywood Bowl in 1970, was released by Warner Brothers. Warner Brothers later released both LP performances on a single CD.

The CD entitled A Tribute to Woody Guthrie (Warner Bros. 9 26036-2), subtitled "Highlights from Concerts at Carnegie Hall, [January 20,] 1968 [and] Hollywood Bowl, [September 12,] 1970", is further described as "A 2-record set on 1 Specially Priced Compact Disc"; the back jewel box insert also contains the following statement: "Three tracks, "So Long (It's Been Good to Know Yuh)" by Judy Collins, "Vigilante Man" by Richie Havens and "Why Oh Why" by Odetta, which appear on the cassette have been omitted so as to facilitate a single, specially-priced compact disc." The disc's total running time is 71:43, and the back insert lists twenty-nine tracks.
