Joan Baez's second album, recorded when she was 20 years old, is a hearty helping of folk masterpieces that give ample evidence to exactly how she was established as a leader of the contemporary folk scene of the day. The material chosen is truly exceptional, from the beautifully stark British ballad "The Trees They Do Grow High" to the tragic tales of death and lost love in "Engine 143" and "Banks of the Ohio," which recall the Carter Family in presentation as much as spirit. Baez is a true master of her craft, and though she hasn't always made the best choices for material, the 14 interpretations here are as timeless as the songs themselves. Similar to Bob Dylan's self-titled debut, this is an album that all fans of traditional folk music should seek out.

Album · 1961 · 17 Songs. Though Bob Dylan became the 20th century's best-known folk singer, he was still refining his craft as 20-year-old Joan Baez was bringing ageless traditional songs to the masses. She'd eventually sing anything Dylan dared to pen, but at the time of her second studio album in 1961, she was doing just fine with the entire history of song behind her. Her ear was simply impeccable.
