Format: Audio CD
This compilation covers the ten years that Joan spent recording for Vanguard. She had some success after she left, but the Vanguard recordings remain the most important of her career.
She occasionally wrote her own songs (represented here by Sweet Sir Galahad) but mostly she recorded the songs of others. Her biggest influence was Bob Dylan, who wrote six of the songs here. Apparently, Bob never recorded Love is just a four letter word, but it is a lovely song. I first heard With God on our side by Manfred Mann, a sixties group who also recorded several Bob Dylan songs. Many people have recorded Don’t think twice it’s all right, including Johnny Cash – another singer who has made several raids on the Bob Dylan songbook. You ain’t going nowhere, Farewell Angelina and A hard rain’s gonna fall are his other songs here.
Other covers by Joan here include There but for fortune (Phil Ochs), No expectations (Rolling stones), Turquoise (Donovan) and the often covered If I were a carpenter. There are also some traditional folk songs – Mary Hamilton, Geordie and Te ador – so old that their writers are unknown.
Joan recorded so many great songs that eighteen tracks cannot possibly include everything worth having, but this is a good sampling of Joan’s music. If you only want one of Joan’s albums, this is a good one to choose.

Format: Audio CD
This first ten year compilation showcases Joan Baez's early works, where her voice was the song. The innocence and purity of her early folk recordings are a major mark in time for this marvelous singer. "Love Is Just A Four Letter Word", "John Riley" and the classic "If I Were A Carpenter" are memories made in and for heaven. Some of the other songs are a surprise as you sit back and suddenly 'remember' this one or that. This is a milestone recording

Format: Audio CD
If you want just one CD that gives you an overview of Joan Baez's career and contains her greatest hits, well...you won't find one. Her career has been too long and varied for that. She was at Woodstock and at Live Aid. She covered traditional English, Spanish and French folk songs, protest and mainstream pop.
Joan's is the finest female voice of the 60's folk revival and protest movement -- pure and melodious and true. This particular CD has too much Dylan for my taste. Good at the time, these now sound very dated. But that is an accurate reflection of the period. We tend to forget now that a great many fans admired Dylan's songwriting but wished he would leave it to the sweet-voiced Joan to sing them.
My personal favorites are the traditional English songs Mary Hamilton, Geordie and John Riley. She sings them exquisitely. If you share that taste, you must get this CD.
Given that this album has a wide variety of music and the resale value seems quite high, this is a prime candidate for ripping and burning the tracks you like and selling it on, especially as the insert notes are minimal and not worth keeping.
As a child of the 60s, the album of hers that I remember best and which now seems most representative is her eponymous 'Joan Baez'. If you are new to her music, start either with that album or with this one. Both are well worth hearing.
