"Recorded on April 8, 1960. Featuring support from bassist Bill Lee (Spike's father who, incidentally, is surely one of the unheralded heroes of the 1960s folk revival, contributing session work to many recordings and helping to expand the parameters of folk's sound from basic solo acoustic guitar accompaniment), as well as The Choir of the Church of the Master. While it's not certain that Odetta's versions of 'If I Had a Hammer,' 'John Riley,' 'John Henry,' and 'No More Auction Block' (all done here) were the most influential of the folk revival, certainly she was an important popularizer of these and similar songs. An important piece of the folk revival puzzle reissued here on LP."
