All tracks have been digitally remastered. Personnel: Joan Baez (vocals, guitar); David Soyer (cello). Liner Note Author: Arthur Levy . Arranger: Joan Baez. Released in 1964, as Joan Baez was cementing her role as the queen of the folk revival and palling around with Bob Dylan, her imaginatively-titled fifth album was a bigger mainstream commercial success than her earlier releases. Opening with a stately cover of Phil Ochs' excellent "There But For Fortune," the album moves effortlessly from the Leadbelly-style folk-blues of "Stewball" to a graceful version of Dylan's "It Ain't Me Babe" and beyond. Despite Baez's public persona as the doyenne of protest music, most of these 12 songs are basically apolitical, with only the Ochs cover and the anti-segregationist "Birmingham Sunday" packing much political punch. A version of the Brazilian art-folk song "Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5--Aria" shows a welcome openness in Baez's repertoire as well, and the guitar-and-cello arrangements are engaging but not showy.
