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

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The voice that launched a thousand earnest young fare-thee-well folkies cut her teeth in the first half of the '60s at the Newport Folk Festivals. This 17-song collection allows fans of Baez to sample her star-making 1963, '64, and '65 sets. (She'd first appeared at the event as a teenager in 1959 as the teenage guest of Bob Gibson, though that milestone has apparently been lost to the ages.) Balancing comely traditionals such as "Come All Ye Fair" and "Tender Maidens" with grittier Bob Dylan tunes, Baez demonstrates how she came to define folk music for a generation of female folksingers. Duets with Dylan, Mary Travers, Peter Yarrow, and the Lilly Brothers provide some extra texture to compliment Baez's smooth-as-silk delivery. --Steven Stolder

4.0 out of 5 stars A golden voice matched with moving songs October 24, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
When I popped this CD into the player for the first time, I simply fell back and said, "Wow." Joan Baez has a great voice and she delivers the songs on this CD with heartfelt emotion. It is a great CD. The only drawback is that on one or two cuts you can hear (if you listen very carefully) some crowd noise, otherwise the sound is outstanding. Her duet with Mary Travers on "Lonesome Valley" is moving. Her duets with Dylan are only OK because their singing styles don't compliment each other. I would recommend this CD if you like any acoustic stuff that the Cranberries have done. Why? Because Dolores O'Riordan's range is similar (but not quite as extensive) as Joan Baez's range. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent historical recordings October 4, 1999

Format:Audio CD
Fine material and performances. Liner notes could be better, though : it would be nice to know at which years' festival each of these recordings were made.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good introduction to Joan Baez January 18, 2013
Format:Audio CD
I primarily bought the album for the duet with Mary Travers on "Lonesome Valley," a great song written by Woodie Guthrie. Their voices complement each other very well -- Travers' earthy and unostentatious style to Baez's trilling soprano. Other duets on the album include Baez with the bluegrass group, The Lilly Brothers, on "Satisfied Mind," and with Bob Dylan on the last two tracks. However, with the exception of the quaint but trifling duet with Peter Yarrow on "Hush Little Baby," these other pairings don't work out too well.

The rest of the album features Baez's solo performances from the legendary Newport Folk Festivals from 1963 to 1965. Fans of music from the 60's folk revival will probably be familiar already with many of these songs, which were made popular by Baez and other folk artists like Peter Paul & Mary. Even though Peter Paul & Mary's is considered the definitive version of "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright," Baez's rendition is quite good. There are many great performances to enjoy here, including "Farewell, Angelina" and the uplifting "Wild Mountain Thyme."
