Odetta - Odetta Sings (1970 US Folk Blues)

  Antxonin envia:

Este disco lo he querido mandar, un poco como homenaje a Odetta Gordon, conocida como "la voz de los derechos civiles", la cual murió el día 2 de Diciembre del pasado 2008 a la edad de 77 años, y un mucho por su voz, desgranando blues, soul, folk, gospel, etc. En éste disco hace temas de otros artistas: Paul McCartney, Elton John, Mick Jagger, Randy Newman, etc, y tiene dos temas suyos, y está acompañada de un elenco sensacional: Carole King, John Boylan, Venetta Field, Barry Beckett, Bernie Leadon,etc, pero sobresale sobre todos ellos la gran voz de Odetta, folki, bluesera, gospeliana, total, majestuosa, sentida, íntima, la voz de los derechos civiles, solo para tí, disfrútala............antxonin

AMG REVIEW: When Bob Dylan released Street Legal using horns, choirs, and hordes of session musicians, the result gave an idea of how tired he was, and Odetta Sings seems to be the result of similar situation, including tiredness and lack of new ideas. Most of the
tracks are covers, the original artists ranging from Elton John to James Taylor, made into R&B. The band is as distinguished as can be
expected, including Merry Clayton on vocals, and, at times, the
groove and the gospel feeling gives a hint of the Staple Singers, but often it sounds just like the slightly pompous soulified pop that would haunt arena concerts throughout the '70s when the artists of the previous decade ran out of creativity. And it is uncertain if it's merit that Odetta took on this style before it became really popular. Only two songs are written by Odetta herself, "Hit or Miss" and "Movin' It On," which is a shame since they are by far the best tracks of the album. Odetta's deep, dark, warm voice distinguishes her from most soul singers, and these two songs give an idea of what it could have sounded like had she decided to release a real soul album — an album without one single Paul McCartney song. — Lars Lovén
