One Grain of Sand wrapped up Odetta’s relationship with Vanguard Records; she had signed a new contract with RCA in late 1962, and One Grain was released on January 1, 1963. It rang in an extraordinary year, even for a historical stretch in which every year was noteworthy in its own way. Marking the one hundredth anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation, 1963 was bound to be a unique moment of contest, elaborately observed in some quarters and violently defaced in others. The album’s title cut, One Grain of Sand, is a gentle lullaby written by Pete Seeger for his baby daughter in 1956. In delicate, reverent tones, the singer expresses humility and wonder before the magnificence of creation: One grain of sand. One drop of water in the deep blue sea One grain of sand. One little you, one little me.

something beyond money! Odetta is one of a kind and a true lady of the spiritual and civil rights movements of the 50's and 60's. One person found this helpful. I have loved the original vinyl album for so long that I had literally worn it out. Odetta is regarded as something of an anomaly in the folk world, as there seem to be few African-American musical artists who have concentrated their craft on folk music. That's a shame, since many songs that have historically been labeled "spirituals" have more in common with folk than Blues or Gospel. Many of the songs presented in this wonderful album are in fact spirituals in the African-American tradition. Moses, Moses and Sail Away Ladies are two fine examples, and were chosen to open this.

One Grain of Sand is an album by American folk singer Odetta, first released in 1963. If you drop one grain of sand on top of this pile every second, the pile will continue to grow in the shape of a cone. The pile retains its shape because occasionally a new grain of sand will trigger an avalanche which causes some number of grains to slide down the side of the cone into new positions. These avalanches are chaotic. It is nearly impossible to predict if the next grain of sand will cause an avalanche, where that avalanche will occur on the pile, how many grains.
