Thread Name: I just discovered Joan Baez
Subject: RE: I just discovered Joan Baez
I first heard her beautiful voice in the mid-70s on records owned by a friend, & continued listening to tapes copied from these records until 1996 when I found folk was still alive. Admittedly I'd never looked for live music, so didn't realise it had never died!

I was forced to buy a CD player in 1998 when my absolute favourite tape (Joan Baez 5, 1964) was so wheezy from overplaying that I could no longer enjoy my favourite song, track 5 - Bachainas Brasilerias no. 5 - Aria. I had an agonised wait of a week before the CD shop could get this particular album, so I had to listen to 5 other CDs I'd bought, including Farewell Angelina.

I have 17 albums, I've replaced most of my copy & original tapes, & I carry around my list so I can buy missing albums.

I think I have most of her early stuff, but I'll check her website.

I'm now listening to Joan Baez 5 - bliss
