odetta
harry belafonte
there's a hole in my bucket
Een serie knusliedjes (mijn vertaling van feel-good-music) moet voor mijn gevoel beginnen met dit nummer, dat onvergetelijk gebracht werd door Harry Belafonte en Odetta. Dat was meteen ook de definitieve versie. Het is te vinden op de langspeelplaat Belafonte returns to Carnegie Hall with Odetta and the Chad Mitchell Trio. Op de platenhoes staat dat ze het samen geschreven hebben: "Belafonte and Odetta worked out this game for a television routine - a rarely heard side of two great artists".
