Odessa Settles has been singing Civil Rights music since she was a child in the 1960's, and her performances on Nashville's "Tokens Show" have resulted in numerous show-stoppers, even more than the Grammy Award winners and the Country Music Hall of Famers we've had on stage. In this Most Outstanding Tokens show compilation, we are gathering Odessa's best performances thus far, and having the original multi-track live recordings re-mixed and re-mastered to bring you a beautiful and moving album.  A very special production from Music City.

The Nashville Scene describes the Tokens Show as a "grass-kicking shredfest" that is a "huge success," with "genre-bending creativity," and The Tennessean calls "one of a kind," and a "virtuouso ensemble." Music critic Peter Cooper recently opined that Tokens "is amazing. It's amazing that [Tokens] has integrated music, humor and scholarship into something so seamlessly entertaining." Other reviewers have called Tokens "spectacular," "provocative," and a "marvel." Sojourners opined that “…if A Prairie Home Companion ever moved South and got religion—or at least went to divinity school—it might look a lot like TOKENS.” And fans describe Tokens as "UH-MAZING," "awesome," "unforgettable," and "wow!"
