Folk legend Joan Baez offers her most successful album in years with this collection of warm, spirited interpretations of songs by five talented (although not widely known) young songwriters. Baez's voice is at its richest here, lending her maturity and experience to literate and heartfelt songs like Dar Williams' stark portrait of loss, "February," and Sinead Loban's "No Mermaid," a quietly triumphant celebration of personal freedom.
GONE FROM DANGER illustrates Baez's admirable talent for recognizing the best, most innovative songwriters and bringing them to the attention of a wider audience. The big news is the mainstream arrival of superlative songwriter/cult hero Richard Shindell, who's recorded several albums of trenchant, poetic songs and is championed here by Baez. She offers her interpretations of his "Reunion Hill," "Fishing" and "Money For Floods," and one is reminded of the way Judy Collins' genteel cover versions brought a young Leonard Cohen into suburban dens and college dorms everywhere.
