Having recently completed a half-covers, half-originals album of blues songs, Living In Dreams, self-professed 'jazz-punk western blues' singer Sandy Dillon was in a perfect position to contribute to our Odetta tribute. She's recorded several of the songs in Odetta's back catalogue over the years, but she really wanted to give us something new. So rather than let us borrow the version of 'Can't Afford To Lose My Man' from Living In Dreams, she suggested we use a live version she'd recorded in session at the Berlin-based Radio Eins, featuring her husband Ray Majors (ex-Mott The Hoople) on guitar and Alabama 3's Sir Eddie Real on percussion.
