The Odds of Life

This song was the flip side of  "Nobody Likes It But Us" and was written by the fabulous guitar man, Johnny Patterson.  No one thought it would ever be heard, but it got quite a lot of air play on gospel and other religious stations - even the African American stations!  Picture me and Fats Domino, Aretha Franklin and Diana Ross!!!  "Odds . . . " was one of my personal favorites, and the memories of the exciting and hastily-done recording session for this song reign at the top of my list of most exciting times in my singing career.
