USA, 1960, contemporary folk
I think Baez isn’t as well respected as other folk singers because she does a lot of traditionals and covers. Of course people know her name, but who listens to her anymore? I love her renditions of selected Child Ballads. Folk singers like this have saved and are saving old Western European folk songs. She recorded this album when she was only 19.

Child ballads for the win. Regardless, Baez’s performances are sweet and earnest, showcasing the power of the traditionals shes sings.
