From Every Stage is a good introduction to Joan Baez. That said, it has some weaknesses. Disc 1's topical songs have dated badly, especially if you don't remember the 70s. I do, but the effect is more nostalgic than effective. Disc 2 is better.The backup combo does a good job and the songs are not stuck in a time warp. It's nice to hear her version of Please Come to Boston, a hit for one-shot folkie Dave Loggins. Her Vangaurd period was her peak, and she fell out of commercial favor shortly after this set came out. All in all, this is a good sampler of Joan Baez when she still meant something to her generation.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
