The Power And The Joanie.


It's a full concert from a young Joan Baez in Shepherd's Bush, London, 1965, recorded by the BBC.

On it's own it's an fantastic testament to what a kid with an acoustic guitar, a voice, and an ability to draw an audience into a song can do.

But, when you realize that she had split with Dylan just before this was recorded, and how far he had already moved on musically by then, well, 'Don't Think Twice It's Alright' becomes pretty darned amazing.

Speaking of amazing, the fantabulous Open Culture has more...

What's that funny smell Dad?

My first concert age 10 (1970ish?) at the Pacific Coliseum to see Joan Baez with the family.

Coliseum is a pretty place to see Joanie...Saw her not too long ago in Malkin Bowl...That was fun.
