The jazz critic Leonard Feather called her "Bessie Smith in Stereo", and on this LP from 1962 the big voice of Detroits Barbara Dane really come true. On My Way includes the entire register of her - folk, jazz, groovy soul-jazz/r&b, blues, etc. She also was a true politic activist back in the 60s, and made a phenomenal album in 1966 with the groovy boys of The Chambers Brothers. A matsterpiece for sure. Groovy!
