  • The great Odetta, born Odetta Felious in Birmingham, is currently under fire for doing a blues album that is closer to jazz than folk. But she remains one of the best folk singers going; her brawny female baritone can run through a wider variety of mood and matter than most singers would dare attempt.

    "JOAN BAEZ -- Folk Singing: Sybil with guitar," TIME Magazine, Nov 23, 1962.


    BONNIE BEECHER (JAHARANA ROMNEY):

    I remember one time... Odetta was coming to town... So me and Cynthia Fisher... were plotting as to how we could get Dylan to meet Odetta and play for her... And in fact he did meet her... and I remember Cynthia Fisher coming running over to my house..., saying, "She said that Dylan has real talent and he can make it!"

    Markus Wittman Interview, The Telegraph No. 36, Summer 1990, p. 12.


    BOB DYLAN:

    I learned all the songs on that record. It was her first and the songs were "Mule Skinner", "Jack of Diamonds", "Water Boy", "'Buked and Scorned.

    Malibu, 1978
