  1. I was introduced to Odetta by a guitar-playing girl I met at a course in 1977. She was also into Bessie Smith and was quite a unique character. (I just don't meet people with interesting, wide-ranging musical tastes anymore - except occasionally on the web - ie: BAK & BBW. ;-)

    1. Know what you mean. There was a time, after Top 40 pop radio days, when your friends, or folks you’d run into somewhere, would be your source for horizon broadening. Nowadays. . . ? To quote Waylon Jennings, “where has a slow moving, once quick draw outlaw got to go?”
