African American folk, blues, jazz and spirituals singer Odetta (1930-2008) discusses her life in America, and her experiences in the music industry. An easy going interview held just before the closing of New York's Fillmore East. She talks about Black musicians in America, her childhood, being a woman in the performing world, her metaphysical view of the human experience, and the development of her music. Odetta sings Paul McCarney's "Every Night" which she says expresses, "where she's at so many times." Program also includes Odetta's recordings of "Hit or Miss", Elton John's "Take Me To The Pilot", and "Give a Damn" (Bob Dorough / Stuart Scharf). Interview recorded at KPFA on April 14, 1971. Broadcast on KPFA on May 20, 1971 and WBAI on May 27, 1971.
