Subject: RE: Lyr Add: In the Pines (Joan Baez/Leadbelly?)
I remember being asked to do this song back in the late 1950's as a semi-unaware college kid and realizing how unsuited I was for it - being both white and male, for starters. I really loved the feel of it and the haunting melody - still do. I'd have loved to hear Odetta do this one. I was never able to hear Leadbelly's version.
