Odetta: December 31, 1930--December 3, 2008

Damn, I hate mortality. A voice that haunted the soul. And for some reason, having not thought of her for some years, I found myself singing bits of her version of "I'm a stranger here"
over the past few days. One of those coincidences that make me wonder....

More details of her remarkably full life here. For now, some of her music. Alas, I can find no Odetta version of "Stranger here" on the web. Anyone?

Still going strong in 2005!
