For a few days we’ll have my favorite female singer/songwriters. Here’s Joan Baez, awesome singer and okay songwriter, owner of one of the best voices of our era, performing the Bob Dylan song “I Shall Be Released” in Sing Sing Prison. This live video was made in 1972, when Baez was 31.
Dylan and Baez were, of course, lovers. Here they are in a famous picture by Daniel Kramer, taken in 1964. Dylan was 23. I have this on my wall to remind me of all that was lovely in the Sixties.
