Joan Chandos Baez (9 January 1941 -), born in Staten Island, New York, is an American singer-songwriter who help revitalize folk music in the 1960s. She has performed publicly for over 55 years and released some 30 albums. She’s a Quaker by birthright and that is reflected in her early, anti-Vietnam War work, her alignment with the . Civil Rights movement, and her work with Amnesty International. Baez is highly regarded today for her music and her involvement in social issues, but she’s not without her critics.

Album · 1960 · 16 Songs. Recorded in just 4 days, the album sounds a lot like the live sets she was doing at the time, backed only by her own lovely, precise, often underrated guitar (an additional guitar appears on just a few tracks). The spare accompaniment makes the most of her gift: that startling soprano, piercing, pure, and almost unbearably clear. It's all quite unstylish these days - Baez is cool,formal, and sincere where we like our folksingers warm and intimate - but the power of the instrument can't be denied. And it's a mistake to see her innate elegance as detachment.
