Audible Editor Reviews

In 1960, young folk singer Joan Baez was invited to the 92nd Street Y to give her first New York City concert. In September 2008, elder stateswoman Baez returned for this interview with Anthony DeCurtis, author and editor at Rolling Stone. This interview focuses on just what happened in the 48 years between her appearances at the Y: a career in music and advocacy rivalled only by Bob Dylan, whom she was instrumental in bringing to light.

Listeners will delight in her recollection of her role as a song interpreter, political activist, and private woman. Throughout, Baez’s grace and humility - and of course her lovely voice - lift the listener’s spirits. Yes, fans: she picks that sweet guitar and raises her voice for three stellar songs!

    "Waaaaaaay Left"

    Although I knew she was a lefty way back in the '60s when I first heard her sing, I really loved her style and tried to imitate it myself. Now she is so far left she is almost right. Ohhhh, I could not even stand to finish listening to this ridiculous interview. I could forgive her less-than-wonderful voice because she is well into her 60s, but her politics sent me reeling.
