When I was little I thought she wrote "Kumbaya".

She always got on my nerves but then I heard her sing Amazing Grace on npr this AM and it was way nice. RIP Odetta.

She always got on my nerves

even when I was five years old.
my parents were big fans

when i heard her again in the Scorcese Dylan film, it brought back bad memories.
this is why I hate folk music, beard or no beard.

I mourn Odetta. I hate we're not going to hear her when Obama is sworn in.

This tribute to Woody Guthrie CD (recording of 1968 tribute show) is probably my favorite record of all time. Her "Rambling Round" is superb.

This is the only image I could find online. Please buy it, but not from fucking Amazon. There's this record store called Goner...
