A Nice Collection Of Joan's Best Songs
Barron Laycock | Temple, New Hampshire United States | 07/19/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a lovely "greatest hits' album by Joan Baez that really is more of a collection of some of her finest work covering other people`s songs. Of course, since she happens to do that better than most other artists, this album is indeed a treat to listen to. Her version of Bob Dylan's "Forever Young" has to be the definitive interpretation of that work, and her cover of John Lennon's "Imagine" is just chilling to listen to. Of course, she does include her own hit, "Diamonds And Rust" here, and it is indeed a great song. So, too is her take on Dylan's "Simple Twist Of Fate". Also included is "please Come To Boston", "children And All That Jazz", and "Sweeter For Me". She has also included her big hit, "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" here, and also a lovely Spanish song, "Gracias A La Vida (Here's To Life)". The album is rounded out with "Never Dreamed You Leave In Summer" and "Love Song To A Stranger". This is a lovely cycle of songs from several of the A&M albums Joan recorded in the 1970s, and one I recommend to any Joan Baez fan as a lovely set of interpretations. Enjoy"
As usual - Joan at her best!

"This is a trip down "memory lane" - Joan's beautiful, smooth, contralto voice brings back memories of the 60's - Great!!"
