    I am a huge fan of Joan Baez. I own every song she ever recorded. Reading her life story is very interesting especially her relationship between Joan and Bob Dylan. I was in college in 1967-1969 which was folk music’s heyday. SIU Edwardsville, IL was a brand new commuting college so life in the student union building was a lesson in communal living. A lot of folk music fans gathered there to emulate their favorite performers.

    I bought Joan’s last album and was shocked to hear how rough her voice was sounding. I don’t know if she had throat issues but that once full range vibrato voice was gone. Ah, the memories this all brings to mind!

  2. My parents remember that.

  3. Lovely post fresh and young they all looked – even Johnny cash! I loved Joan Baez, her grace and beauty as well as her marvellous throbbing voice –
    And Bob Dylan, the pain and pathos in his accompaniments on the mouth organ… you forget how young and beautiful they all were back then!!!
    It all seems so innocent now….

    All of it Sharla, every single solitary song! When I get to listen to a whole series of songs from that era it brings back the time and memories so vividly clear to me and I love it.

    1963 I was in 7th grade and hating junior high. My sister was a junior and in love. I idolized her. I watched her as she put her makeup on and I would sneak makeup to school in my purse putting it on as I rode the bus and taking it off before I got home. My sister looked like Annette Funicelo (not sure of spelling) I looked like Janet from Lawrence Welk the Youngest of the four Lennon sisters. It was a time when my sister ruled the house and I listened to her music or what mom wanted to hear. That didn’t change till I hit high school.
