Here is a great article from Rolling Stone from five years ago (link HERE) celebrating the 50th anniversary of Arlo Guthrie’s hilarious 18-minute musical saga recounting the consequences of taking out the garbage after Thanksgiving dinner.
And here is the “video” of that song (just the album cover and the original recording).
The church where Alice lived is now the Guthrie Center. If you’re ever in the Berkshires area of Massachusetts, you can visit it. You can hold your wedding or meeting there, enjoy a concert (with dinner and drinks), or take a yoga class. Every now and then you can even see Arlo Guthrie perform the song that made it famous.
Finally, here is a photo of the original page 25 Berkshire Eagle news story reporting the crime at the heart of Guthrie’s musical legend.
