Beauty in simplicity
chalkie | Wales | 03/02/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was given this album in exchange for a couple of my university text books. I think the exchange of two boring political strategy books, for this excellent LP was the best deal since a few Dutch men got a bit of land somewhere in America for a few old beads. I have always been a big fan of Bob Dylans, and also the British version, Donavan. So to find such perfect songs as 'Blue Eyed Boy' 'A hard rains a-gonna fall' and 'Colours' given such beautiful treatment has given unadulatrated pleasure. Baez's voice has a purity to it, that when coupled with the simplicity of an accoustic guitar, show just how powerful and beautiful a good voice and a moving tune can be. For proof, just enjoy the title track which showpeices the singers voice and sets the tone for a stunning album."
Pure and beautiful singing
chalkie | 07/07/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Joan Baez has one of the most beautiful voices ever recorded. Here she demonstrates the soulful, haunting quality of her range, from the lyrical and lilting "Farewell Angelina," to the subtle sacasm of "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue," to the strong and stirring "Hard Rain Going to Fall." To hear one of the classic folk singers of all time, listen to this album and marvel at a true master of the genre."
Classic Vintage Baez
Mark R. Thivierge | Brighton, MA United States | 02/25/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Though her 1968 release, ANY DAY NOW, was her actual Dylan tribute, this classic Baez album contained four of the best Dylan covers of Joan's career. The title song, a gem filled with surrealistic imagery was never even officially recorded by Dylan (though a bootleg does surface from time to time), and "A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall" is given a near definitive treatment by Joan, her version quite possibly surpassing Dylan's. The other material, including Woodie Guthrie's "Ranger's Command," the traditional "Wild Mountain Thyme", and a German version of "Where Have all the Flowers Gone?" round the album out nicely."
