Odetta (born Odetta Holmes) was an important and unique element in the great American folk revival in the early 1960s. Unique because her musical influences came almost entirely from Anglo-Saxon folk roots rather than blues and gospel of her African-American heritage. As a performer she was a major influence over Harry Belafonte, Bob Dylan, Joan Baez and more! She also counted Dr Martin Luther King amongst her very important fans. This 2CD set features live performances from Carnegie Hall and Greenwich Village clubs and includes her only UK hit, a duet with Harry Belafonte on a version of "There's A Hole In My Bucket".

By the time the independent folk label Vanguard Records got around to releasing its sixth Odetta album, One Grain of Sand, in 1963, the singer had already decamped to RCA Victor and released her major-label debut, Sometimes I Feel Like Cryin', in 1962. But One Grain of Sand is not just a collection of outtakes assembled to fulfill a contract and take revenge on a departed artist…

Odetta's husky voice is often stunning, both in her a cappella performances and her songs with accompaniment. She says these songs are traditional spirituals, neither purely African nor American, but songs that emerged from the sufferings of slavery. Powerful stuff.

Bob Dylan singled this album out as one of his favorites by Odetta; indeed, it was albums like this that inspired him to play folk music instead of rock 'n' roll.

Odetta was one of the strongest voices in the folk revival and the civil rights movement. While it might be hard for a post-millennium roots fan to understand, Odetta — in her heyday — was the kind of folk artist who drove purists crazy. With her resonate vocals and her choice of material, she seemed like the perfect link between older performers like Leadbelly and the folk movement of the late '50s. At the same time, Odetta had studied music in college and had no intention of being hemmed in by what a small group of white men thought about tradition. Released in 1959, "My Eyes Have Seen" was the first album that revealed her split nature. "My Eyes Have Seen" is a nice portrait of a performer bucking conformity as she stretches her artistic legs a bit.

Folk, jazz, blues and spirituals singer Odetta has been an established artist for decades. She took operatic training in her early years and plays acoustic guitar & keyboards. Martin Luther King Jr anointed her "The Queen of American folk music”, and poet Maya Angelou once said, “If only one could be sure that every 50 years a voice and a soul like Odetta's would come along, the centuries would pass so quickly and painlessly we would hardly recognize time."
