Don't miss it. Joan and friends come up with some stunning live versions of old favourites in a great collection. Buy it and enjoy.

TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICEon 31 December 2009
This recording when first released in single CD format was at a time when Joan Baez was releasing more live albums plus moving around labels a lot. Overall it was fine but not outstanding Baez, featuring the highlights of two evenings hosted by Joan with several songs being sung with other guest artistes. The performances were from a famous NY folk venue (the Bottom Line) which subsequently closed as did the original record label of release!

Now re-released on the UK folk label of choice (Proper), the addition of a number of previously omitted recordings expands the set out to two CDs and makes it available as a Collectors edition. While nice to have a more complete picture of the two nights, sadly none of the new tracks alter the original view of the first release as good but not great. Baez's voice remains the main reason for acquiring, and I found her solos still the better recordings versus the shared performances, including one with her sister Mimi Farina who has since died and to whom the new release is dedicated.

Having just seen Baez live on her UK tour, this compilation includes several that she performed, and other classics. Good live atmosphere with Baez's incomparable voice coming through clearly. Very good value! i recommend it.

I had this on an audio tape but when I found it was available on CD thought it a better deal. Don't go a bundle on every single song but it's a nice thing to have. Particularly like 'And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda',a long time favorite of mine so it's nice to have that and' Willie Moore' with the lateKate McGarrigle and her sister.

Would have given 5* but there were a couple of tracks I didn't particularly care for. I'm a sucker for live albums but between track editing needs careful handling and there are some clunky moments to spoil an otherwise great ambience. Nice selection of accompanists.

A really wonderful live performance from Joan on this 2cd of Ring Them Bells, yet again no banter from Joan, still it`s a wonderful experience with the other guests singing with Joan.
