What we’re sayin’ is…

Hey, Jimmie, Joe, John, Jim, Jack
Even little tigers lose their knack
When somebody twice their size
Can’t see the world through children’s eyes

— from “Hey, Jimmie, Joe, John, Jim, Jack” by The Limeliters

Music’s Biscuit Roller Has Done Gone   Leave a comment


Born in Alabama during the Great Depression (1930), although Odetta and her mother moved to Los Angeles in 1937, her soul had been baptized in the black prison songs and work songs from the southern fields. Considered by many of my generation as the voice of civil rights in America, our “biscuit roller has done gone.” (December 3, 2008) She traveled most of the 20th century, now on her way after serving as a key to so many doors.

With the current economic crisis impacting so many around the globe, I thought I would share this YouTube selection. “Brother Can You Spare A Dime” — Dr. John & Odetta
