This is a collection of spirituals
that Odetta was wicked famous for.
Richie Havens did an
interpretation of two of them at
Woodstock. Here I reinterpret her
version of the song, the way I've
been singing it for quite a few
years now. My voice with just a
little bit of delay and reverb and
eq and stuff, and my friend Carl's
Les Paul standard without an amp.
You're hearing just the wood and
the string noise. Yes, I'm playing
an electric like an acoustic. You
got a problem with that?
