An exceptional 15-track compilation released on Rykodisc's Tradition imprint (also available as part of a box set with similar compilations by Leadbelly and Woody Guthrie), AT THE GATE OF HORN is a long-overdue reappraisal of the work of Odetta Gordon. The singer/guitarist is so closely identified with the late-'50s/early-'60s collegiate folk revival that her music has often been dismissed, or simply forgotten, in the decades since.
Focusing on her striking versions of traditional folk tunes, sung in a clear, deep voice and most often backed only with her acoustic guitar and the occasional bass work of Bill Lee, AT THE GATE OF HORN offers one surprise after another. "Gallows Tree," a variant of a traditional British folk tune best known to modern audiences as Leadbelly's "Gallis Pole," is a stunning, doomy opener, and Odetta's version of the lullaby "All the Pretty Horses" is simply beautiful. In between these tracks are 13 other pure folk gems.
