No More Auction Block. Verified Purchase. I heard Odetta yesterday for the first time - was surprised that this album was sort of deja-vu experience:there was a constant feeling like I heard this before. And I understand why.
The first Joan Baez album for Vanguard,circa Then again,I heard traces of Odetta in Joan Armatrading. And her passion is not dissimilar of Mahalia Jackson's,both women share that wonderful contralto that make them sound as they are possesed by music.
Saying this,I must admit that Odetta is very much her own woman with spectacular strong music presence and althought this her first album was focused LP) traditional folk material,I have feeling she could have sing gospel or jazz or classical music and still it would be magic.
I found out about Odetta by accident but I'm glad I did. This has been a magnificent discovery for me. A moderate disappointment, this LP showcases the very early, and somewhat tentative Odetta. A transfer of her first LP, this 16 song disc provides a look at someone who would become a truly great singer and guitarist, but has not yet achieved that. Many of these songs were recorded again later, with much more satisfying results. And the addition of Bill Lee on bass was inspired; on the familiar cuts, that missing bass is really missing.
It is not a total loss. No Odetta disc could ever be. I think she was the finest female singer of the folk movement, a voice that went right through the ears into the soul.
And she does that on a few of these. A softer God's Gonna Cut You Down comes off as not weaker than her later, powerhouse, version but quite different, more fearful, less threatening. And the concluding trilogy is quite good. But mostly I prefer the later versions of these songs, readily available on other compilations. Her live recording from The Tin Angel, from about the same time, is also more satisfying. A bargain price makes it more attractive, but it is certainly not essential. And hey guys, the print on this disc is Another Man Done Gone - Odetta - The Essential Odetta (Vinyl.
Huge spacing between very small tan letters on black background makes it very hard to read. And the font on the inside, also quite annoying. On a 12" disc it would be fine, but compressed to this size, it is ugly and hard to read. See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries. Translate all reviews to English. Odetta for ever!
