The Columbia River Collection, originally released as the Columbia River Ballads, is a compilation of songs folksinger Woody Guthrie wrote during his visit to the U.S. state of Oregonmarker in 1941. Guthrie traveled to Oregon on the promise of a part narrating a documentary about the construction of public works dams and other projects in the Pacific Northwest. The documentary never came to fruition, but 17 of the 26 songs he wrote during this period were compiled and released as this collection, including some of his most famous songs, such as "Roll on Columbia", "Grand Coulee Dammarker", and "The Biggest Thing That Man Has Ever Done".
