5.0 out of 5 stars Joan Baez at her sublime best, 27 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: An Intimate Performance (Audio CD)
I found the footage of this 1965 concert on YouTube and was so mesmerized I sat and watched the whole thing. Twice. A little rummaging on Amazon turned up this CD which I ordered without another thought and am so glad I did. There are 17 tracks, each one a gem (including the atypical 'She's a Trouble Maker' and 'Isn't It Grand' which are sung with verve and humour), each one showing off her voice to perfect advantage. Recorded at the BBC Television Theatre in London, it includes her talking to the audience briefly between some tracks.
If you love beautiful old folk songs - with a dash of Dylan and others here and there - sung with a voice perfectly suited to their rendition, then do yourself a favour and buy yourself the little piece of Heaven that is 'An Intimate Performance'. Best seven quid I've ever spent.
This album doesn't appear on any discography of hers which is perplexing, but I would recommend it both as an excellent introduction to Joan Baez - which it pretty much was for me - or to diehard Baez fans. Her performance is almost flawless and the audience participation adds warmth to an already very moving rendition of '500 Miles', one of a handful of songs which don't seem to be on any of her earlier albums.
Really, buy it.
