Carly Simon remembers Odetta

Carly Simon has contributed to The Huffington Post by providing a touching memory of legendary singer Odetta, who died on Tuesday, December 2.

Odetta is my hero. She is my only legitimate first hero. Since Odetta they have merged, my heros, but Odetta stands singular as my most fabulous and most adored influence. I can name you many, many more influences — later and different but never as strong. Like a first love, you can imitate it, maybe change it here and there, but the first cut is the deepest and the one that never leaves.

(Notice the Cat Stevens reference in the last sentence.)
