Odetta Passes

I guess today most people don't remember her, but back in the day she was one of THE voices for civil rights. She had a powerful influence on singers the likes of Janis Joplin and Joan Baez.

She died yesterday at the age of 77

Another powerful voice is gone. I always love her version of her husband Leadbelly's song "when I was a cowboy". Thanks for posting this.
