Amazing the number and quality of artists who have dipped into the Odetta songbook to source great songs: Bob Dylan, Harry Belafonte, Led Zeppelin, Johnny Cash, Joan Baez, Elvis Presley, and Janis Joplin. Of course, Odetta did not compose these songs and it may be that these artists are all drinking at the same well. There is also considerable overlap with Mahalia Jackson.
Although this album takes many of the same recordings as the Best of Odetta, this album has some great songs not on the other album, including Gallows Pole, Santy Anno and Hold On.
