Although 1969's DAVID'S ALBUM is named in honor of Joan Baez's then-husband, jailed draft protester David Harris, it's oddly enough one of her least political albums. Recorded in Nashville--at about the same time as Bob Dylan's NASHVILLE SKYLINE, an album which this strongly resembles--with country music veterans like Pete Drake, Jerry Kennedy and even country-pop songwriter and sometime-actor Jerry Reed, DAVID'S ALBUM is a fairly straightforward country-rock album. A version of the classic Bill Monroe arrangement of the gospel standard "Will the Circle Be Unbroken" is a highlight, as is the first of several versions Baez recorded of Gram Parson's country-rock masterpiece "Hickory Wind." The arrangements sometimes sound a bit slick and dated, but this is probably Baez's most fruitful experiment in this then-fashionable genre.
