  •  The Foggy Dew (8+ / 0-)

    In the beginning, the universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry, and is generally considered to have been a bad move. -- Douglas Adams, The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy

    •  Glad you added The Foggy Dew. (7+ / 0-)

      Odetta was hardly Irish, but her version of The Foggy Dew is one of the most powerful I ever heard.  Back in the early1960s I got a boxed set of albums from the Newport Folk Festival and Odetta had several songs on it.  I came close to wearing that one track out, playing it over and over again.  This little video of Odetta singing The Foggy Dew is not the same one performed live at the Newport Folk Festival. I think that one is much better than this studio recording; however, she was drawing energy from an enthusiastic crowd at Newport. Whenever I play that scratchy old album, I get chills.
