I have Odetta's first album (Odetta Sings Ballads and Blues, Tradition Recordings, TLP 1010, recorded September 1956. Liner notes by Dean Gitter begin with "A magnificent new voice is here to sing the old songs..." and end with "It is therefore with a pride which borders on hybris that Tradition Records presents in her first album one of the most electrifying performers of our time -- ODETTA!" But nowhere does it mention anyone accompanying her. I'm listening to the album right now, and there are no other voice on any songs, although about a quarter of the songs have a unnamed bass playing along. Otherwise, it's just purely Odetta. So is Sandy asking a trick question, or does he know who that string bass player is? And is Dean Gitter's "hybris" a typo for "hubris?" And where did my son put the big dictionary?
