Thread Name: Who is/was Larry Mohr ??
Subject: RE: Who is/was Larry Mohr ?? ---First Odetta album
It's widely believed that Odetta's Tradition LPs (1956 TLP-1010 "... sings Ballads and Blues" and 1957 TLP-1025 "... at the Gate of Horn") are her first LPs (Stambler & Landon 1969; Baggelaar & Milton 1977; Stambler & Stambler 2001; seems like Chinese whispers ;-).
Yet her first issued recordings actually are two 1954 Fantasy 7 inch EPs (EP-4017 "the tin angel presents odetta & larry Vol. 1" and EP-4018 "... Vol. 2") with Larry Mohr (some of the tracks as a duo, some tracks by each artist by themselves) brought out the same year (?) as a 10 inch 33 rpm LP: Fantasy 3-15 "the tin angel presents Odetta and Larry"
I've gathered what I could find about those records (and later re-issues on Fantasy and other labels) at http://www.wirz.de/music/rarearly.htm#odetta

Additional information (e.g. track list of Fantasy 3-15) are very much appreciated !!!
