Great Musical Moments
Mark R. Thivierge | Brighton, MA United States | 02/26/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"DAVID'S ALBUM was recorded during Joan's "Nashville years" (from 1968 - 73 she recorded almost exclusively in Music City), and while not her best album from this period (ONE DAY AT A TIME was a much stronger album), it nonetheless contained some thrilling musical moments. Her harmonies with her sister Mimi Farina on "Poor Wayfaring Stranger" are among the most beautiful sounds ever committed to record, and Gram Parsons' "Hickory Wind" has gone on to become a Baez standard. And Joan's liner note -- a tribute to her then husband who would soon be imprisoned for draft resistance -- are no less moving thirty-odd years later."
A Distinct, Wonderful Voice !

(5 out of 5 stars)

""Poor Wayfaring Stranger" - a song to be remembered through the decades ! LP originally released in 1969, when David, her husband was imprisoned for having refused to be drafted. In her own words, Joan dedicates this album to "all those who are locked up, that they might have the strength to act like free men, and not prisoners, and for all those on the outside, that they might have the strength to act like free men and not prisoners" !Simple words, unforgettable melody easily unwinding, a feeling of melancholy and everlasting hope; Joan Baez - one of the most beautiful, warm, vibrant voices of all times !"
The power of a voice
Nora Isabel Delgado | Bernal, Buenos Aires Argentina | 10/01/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'm an atheist. But when I hear "The tramp on the street" or "Just a closer walk with you" from "DAVID'S ALBUM" I have a God and I can pray. Joan Baez's voice is a powerful message full of faith and hope.A perfect balance of sensous delicacy and strengh. Beautiful!"
