Biography

How do you build a narrative for a story as rich and multifaceted as the life of Joan Baez? Baez herself is not especially inclined to introspection, or to the backwards glance. Often wrongly perceived as a naïve idealist, she is, in her own distinctive way, a pragmatist to the core with her eyes fixed squarely on what’s right in front of her. As an activist, she has viewed her life ... Read more in Amazon's Joan Baez Store

This CD is a 'must' for her fans.
E. A. Lovitt
Joan Baez' third album "In Concert Part One" remains the quintessential album of the 1960s folk revival and stands on its own as a remarkably beautiful piece of music.

The purity and range of her voice, the quality of the songs and the simple guitar backing, all provided a very rich experience.

Time was, when this document of a 1962 Baez concert was released, that a musician could go on stage, armed with only a guitar and voice, sing songs that required listening and involvement by the audience -- and be successful. While that time may seem long ago and far away now, this first volume of "Joan Baez in Concert" proves that once upon a time, such things were possible.
One thing you might notice as soon as you listen to the release: there are no annoying hoots, hollers, yells, whistles, etc., etc., as Baez sings, or as she quietly prepares to play. One thing you will most certainly notice is the incredible quality of Baez's voice -- it was one of popular music's great instruments, producing bell-like tones of absolute purity. And finally, you will notice the quality of the material. Baez's love of songs that extend back in America's and the world's history is evident in her interpretations of much-sung tunes such as "Black Is the Color" and "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You."
Lest you think you are buying a hoary disc filled with dated protest songs, be assured that "In Concert" contains very little overtly political material. In fact, the only pure protest song, the excellent "What Have They Done to the Rain" is as much poetry as protest. And another of the disc's high points, the moonshine tune "Copper Kettle," leavens the performance with a dose of good humor.
This is music for quiet, reflective moments, a commodity in short supply today.

This was my first encounter with Joan Baez, back in the 70s. I was completely captivated. The purity and range of her voice, the quality of the songs and the simple guitar backing, all provided a very rich experience. "What have they done to the rain?" took my breath away, coming at a time when the nuclear debate was spreading world-wide. The contrast between the beauty of the melody and voice with the grimness of the meaning was very powerful. Time has not dimmed that first reaction.

Joan Baez has certainly fallen out of favor. Not sure I know why. Perhaps her music is too much out of step with the times. In any event, if you can get by the applause on this live CD, you will experience perhaps the finest artist of the prime folk movement at her prime - in voice and guitar. All the songs are a joy to listen to from a story/voice/instrument viewpoint. The voice and guitar on "Lady Mary" is perhaps Joan at her very best - a pure voice with no harsh edges and simple guitar which moves the heart. I have never heard "Black Is The Color Of My True Loves Hair" performed in any manner approaching this aching rendition. "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You" melds Joans moving voice with a guitar which literally pulls you down the highway. All in all a moving CD which demands that it be listened to - and therin may lie it's lack of popularity today. Buy it if you have an ounce of reflection in you.

Format: Audio CD
This CD has three extra songs that were not on the original vinyl recording of "Joan Baez in Concert." They are "Streets of Laredo," "My Good Old Man," and "My Lord What a Morning." Not much of a bargain, considering the fact that Joan sings kind of wishy-washy spirituals, and "Streets of Laredo" is set to slightly unfamiliar music, which makes it difficult to sing along with. I'll get used to it, though, and as always Joan's Child Ballads and Southern Appalachian ballads are to kill for. The liner notes that accompany this CD are also quite interesting. They discuss Joan's very early career and how she overcame her fear of large audiences.
Remember that the songs on this CD were recorded 'in concert' so you will hear occasional applause and crowd noises.
There are sixteen songs in all, and here are a few of my favorites:
"Babe, I'm Gonna Leave You" - I always thought this was a Bob Dylan song, but the most popular version turns out to have been recorded by Led Zeppelin. According to their web site, Jimmy Page heard the Baez version and decided to rearrange it for his band. The original version of the song has been traced to Anne Bredon, a folk musician who wrote and recorded the original song in the 1950s. At any rate, Joan sings it as a very lovely, plaintive ballad. I'm probably one of the few people in America who has never heard the Led Zeppelin version.
"Geordie" - A version of this Child ballad (#209) "God be wi' thee, Geordie" appears in the "Straloch Manuscripts (early 17th century)." It also appears in Buchan's "Ancient Ballads and Songs (1828)" under the name of "Gight's Lady.

For forty years, her pure voice and liberal beliefs have been part of the American fabric and of the lives of those of us who came of age in the 60's. When I hear her, I see myself in college waking up to this album, I see my grown sons as small children listening to her in front of the stereo while I studied in law school. When I had a "high lonely", retreated from whatever I was doing and went back to my "roots", it was Joan that I listened to. I love her music, not for what she is or isnt or what she ever has said or done, but for how her music did to me.
