OdettaOdetta & The Blues ... LP
Riverside, 1962. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Early early work from Odetta – still done in the folksy mode you'd expect from other records of the 60s, but also with a slight flavor of trad jazz too – thanks to the presence of some great musicians on the date! The group features some standout horn work from Buck Clayton on trumpet, Vic Dickenson on trombone, and Herb Hall on clarinet – all of whom bring in a New Orleans flavor to the music that's quite surprising – almost a back door link of Odetta's groove to older African-American traditions, but not in the ways that are usually foregrounded in her work. Other players include Dick Wellstood on piano, Ahmed Abdul-Malik on bass, and Shep Shepherd on drums – and titles include "Hard Oh Lord", "Oh My Babe", "Yonder Come The Blues", "Make Me A Pallet On Your Floor", "Hogan's Alley", and "Leavin This Mornin". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label Bill Grauer Productions pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear and a split spine.)

✨✧ 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

✨✧ OdettaOdetta Sings Dylan ... LP
RCA, 1965. Used ... Out Of Stock
A stripped down, bluesy folk soul set of Dylan tunes by Odetta – returning some kudos to a kid who was hugely inspired by her earlier material in the late 50s – a really beautiful record and possibly one of the best ever Dylan covers albums! Odetta Sings Dylan is actually one of the earliest full LPs of Dylan covers – pretty soon everyone and their brother would be covering him, very few as naturalistic and wonderfully as Odetta! Odetta's perfect vocals and guitar are accompanied by guitarist Peter Childs and bassist Les Grinage, and the titles include "Baby, I'm In The Mood For You", "Long Ago, Far Away", "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright", "Tomorrow Is A Long Time", "Walkin' Down The Line", "Masters Of War", "Long Time Gone" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing. Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ OdettaOdetta & Larry ... LP
Fantasy, 1955. Used ... Out Of Stock

Tracks include "John Henry", "Old Blue", "Water Boy", "Santy Ana", "The Car-Car Song", "Pay Day At Coal Creek", "I've Been 'Buked & I've Been Scorned". They sing together and have solo songs as well. LP, Vinyl record album
(Red vinyl pressing. Cover has a center split on the spine.)
