Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Solo performer: Joan Baez (vocals, guitar).
  • Producer: Maynard Solomon.
  • Reissue producer: Mark Spector.
  • Recorded live between August 1962 and November 1963. Originally released on Vanguard (9112). Includes liner notes by Maynard Solomon and Arthur Levy.
  • All tracks have been digitally remastered.
  • This is part of Vanguard Records Original Masters Series.
  • The 'queen of folk' was an accomplished live performer as this, the first of two In Concert albums proved. Accompanying herself on acoustic guitar, Baez brought her pure, virginal soprano to contrasting material. Her interpretations of Childe ballads 'Matty Groves' and 'The House Carpenter' are particularly moving, but an empathy with American folklore, including Woody Guthrie and the Carter Family, is equally apparent. Baez's reading of Malvina Reynolds' protest song, 'What Have They Done To The Rain', is especially arresting and inspired a later pop hit for the Searchers. This album helped take folk music out of the coffee-house circuit and into national consciousness.
