The Joan Baez volume in the Universal Masters Collection series documents what the label producers deem as the best material she recorded for the A&M label. Baez experienced an artistic renaissance at the label and actually scored a hit with her own "Diamonds and Rust." Of course that's here, but so are many other live and studio treasures from the period, including gorgeous readings of the traditional "Guantanamera," Jackson Browne's "Love Song to a Stranger," Bob Dylan's "Forever Young," Robbie Robertson's "Night They Drove Old Dixie Down," Janis Ian's "Jesse," and her late sister Mimi Fari¤a's "In the Quiet Morning." ~ Thom Jurek
