✨✧ OdettaChristmas Spirituals ... CD
Vanguard (UK), 1963. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An early album of Christmas tunes from the legendary Odetta – recorded in a very spare setting, with only acoustic bass from Bill Lee alongside her vocals and guitar! The style is extremely evocative, and really gets past the cliches of most Christmas albums – and creates a dark tension in most of these tunes that's a fair bit different than the warmer tones of the season you might expect. Lee's bass is especially great – stepping out in lines that often contrast Odetta's own – providing a really dark undercurrent that keeps things interesting throughout. Titles include "Virgin Mary Had One Son", "Somebody's Talking About Jesus", "Mary Had A Baby", "Shout For Joy", "Oh Jerusalem", "If Anybody Asks You", and "Children Go Where I Send Thee". CD

VariousMilk Of The Tree – An Anthology Of Female Vocal Folk & Singer/Songwriters 1966 to 1973 (3CD set) ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $22.99
The female voice found a whole new way to flower in the world of folk music during the 60s – a style that helped women get past some of the more standard sultry modes of postwar pop, and hit the kind of righteous currents and deeper themes that helped transform a generation! The moment began with early folkies like Joan Baez and Odetta, then expanded by the end of the 60s to include incredible young talents who were carving out new styles of their own – singers who were inspired by the freedoms and deeper intellectual currents of folk, but who moved into styles that changed strongly with the heady times! This wonderful box set is a great examination of the moment, and really charts its growth – pulling together well-known artist and some lesser-knowns who include some great female singers from the UK. Titles include "Flying Away" by Serpent Power, "Foolish Seasons" by Dana Gillespie, "Light Flight" by The Pentangle, "Please" by Eclection, "Jesus Was A Cross Maker" by Judee Sill, "Who Has Seen The Wind" by The Simon Sisters, "Red Wine & Promises" by Norma Winstone, "Mr Fox" by Mr Fox, "By The Sea" by Wendy & Bonnie, "Come Into The Garden" by Chimera, "Early Morning Blues & Greens" by Diane Hildebrand, "Autumn Lullaby" by Bridget St John, "The Lonely" by Design, "If Not By Fire" by Mandy More, "Autie Aviator" by Beverley & John Martyn, "Mr Rubin" by Lesley Duncan, "Morgan The Pirate" by Mimi Farina, and "Murdoch" by Trees.

VariousWoody Guthrie – The Tribute Concerts – Carnegie Hall 1968/Hollywood Bowl 1970 (3CD/2 hardcover book set) ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1968/1970. New Copy 3CD & 2 hardcover bo ... $106.99 129.99
Woody Guthrie left this planet all too soon – in 1967, after years of struggle with Huntington's Disease – but not before leaving behind generations of singers and musicians who were forever in debt to his work! Some of the best of those artists came together here – in two legendary live tributes to Woody – one from 1968 at Carnegie Hall, the other from 1970 at the Hollywood Bowl – with amazing performances from Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Judy Collins, Jack Elliot, Richie Havens, Tom Paxton, Odetta, Pete Seeger, and others – and accompaniment on the Carnegie set by The Band, and work on the Hollywood concert by Ry Cooder and other west coast musicians. Both shows are presented here in their entirety – along with 20 tracks that never appeared on the original albums – with all songs in their original performance order, as well as original narration by Peter Fonda, Robert Ryan, and Will Geer. But even along with the music – which might be expensive here for just 3 CDs – the set also features two different hardcover books – over 240 pages between them – with a huge amount of photos, images, writings, and other details that document these amazing events – packaged in a handsome slipcover too. The whole thing is one of the most beautiful packages we've ever seen from Bear Family – and is the long-overdue proper presentation of this material! CD
