How would you like to be the son of Woody Guthrie? But Arlo carved out a niche for himself with this, his debut album, which features that beloved minute title cut and the lovely Chilling of the Evening. While the title track may seem, by now, a rather obvious and nostalgic relic, we'd do well to remember that an entire post-baby boom generation has likely never heard it. At 18 minutes, the song remains one of the most hysterical things ever recorded, and many of its politcal barbs can still sting. But the record also contained two far more lyrical pieces: "Chillin' of the Evening" and the gorgeous, sweeping "Highway in the Wind. Would you like to tell us about a lower price?

Alice's Restaurant is a American comedy film directed by Arthur Penn. It is an adaptation of the folk song " Alice's Restaurant Massacree ", originally written and sung by Arlo Guthrie. Alice's Restaurant was released on August 19, , a few days after Guthrie appeared at the Woodstock Festival. A soundtrack album for the film was also released by United Artists Records. The soundtrack includes a studio version of the title song , which was originally divided into two parts one for each album side ; a CD reissue on the Rykodisc label presents this version of the song in full, and adds several bonus tracks to the original LP. In , Arlo Guthrie as himself has attempted to avoid the draft by attending college in Montana. His long hair and unorthodox approach to study gets him in trouble with local police as well as residents. He quits school, and subsequently hitchhikes back East.
Appreciating the hospitality, Arlo, on Thanksgiving break from his first and last semester as a Montana college forestry major, decided the least he could do was help clean up. Guthrie began composing a song about his malfeasance immediately afterward, though he didn't think to put it to paper until informed he needed a copyright. Woodie thought it was a fabulous vehicle for social commentary. I loved those guys.
