I knew that the Vanguard label had recorded the songs of the Weavers after they were hit by their troubles and that the results were live recordings of the group in concert. "Very Early Joan" reveals the same approach with Joan Baez at the start of her brilliant career. Here are 22 tracks, all recorded live, representing a pleasing mix of political folk songs, such as "Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream" and "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?" with more popular works, including "Man of Constant Sorrow" and "Lonesome Valley." But what stands out is the voice, clear and pristine, whether Baez is singing "The Water is Wide" or "Little Darlin'." Obviously the recordings are going to leave a lot to be desired in terms of clarity, but as the title proudly proclaims, this is "Very Early Joan" Baez, sung live, and to be cherished for those reasons alone.

Format: Audio CD
This is a compilation of twenty-two songs culled from about fifteen of her early live concerts, which were recorded between November 1961 and August 1963. The original double album had twenty four tracks, but the back of the cd liner explains that, due to compact disc format time restrictions, some songs on the original album are not included on the cd. The notes in the cd liner itself were written by Ms. Baez's mother for the original album.
On this cd, the listener will, indeed, be treated to early Joan Baez, accompanying herself on the guitar. As the songs are culled from her live performances, the listener will note the discernible adulation of the audiences throughout. Whether Ms. Baez is singing a traditional folksong, a folksong with political overtones, a duet with Peter Seeger of Peter, Paul, and Mary fame, or a rock-n-roll parody, it is clear that the slightly insouciant Ms. Baez is enjoying herself, and it is infectious.
The quality of the cd is what one may expect from such an early, live recording, as it suffers from occasional lack of clarity and uneven volume, with the clapping of the audience throughout being louder than the song tracks. Still, this is certainly a cd to which some historical significance has attached, and one that all devoted fans of Ms. Baez will want to include in their collection, if only for her beautiful rendition of Peter Seeger's "Where Have All the Flowers Gone".
