Early signs of great things to come
on 14 May 2012
This is not a collection of great songs, performed by an artist at the top of her game. Some are just the first efforts of a competent guitarist with a good voice. Other tracks are oddities as Joan Bayez struggles to find her niche and potential exploiters of her talent try to fit her to their ideas of what will sell. Some, however, show what is to come. All in all a pleasant enough collection, with the trademark voice growing in confidence and the song choices becoming more focused and appropriate for her style. Worth buying if you already have the classic albums.
