Hey Rick, dont sweat it. I recently found some old tapes of me talking about music when I was 16 or 17, and cringe at the evidence of what a musical bigot (read raving lunatic ASSHOLE) I was in those days. We were all older then... Re Josh White, I have vague memories of an album he made (probably late 50's) with Jazz drummer Max Roach and a bass player (Charles Mingus?). I seem to recall that their backing of him was fairly understated and tasteful, so this is probably not the one you are talking about. I know there were others where he was put in a pseudo-dixieland setting that was clearly unfortunate. There are many cases of this type where someone had a vision of mixing artists from different genres. Some are successful (BB King & George Jones, Willie Nelson & Ray Charles, Jimmy Rogers & King Oliver), but MANY are misguided (Muddy Waters & Dizzy Gillespie, John Lee Hooker & Vic Dickenson, Frank Sinatra & Bono). I dont know if this counts as overproduction or not, but it does tend to leave one scratching one's head & wondering "what were they thinking?"
