All Music Guide - Ronnie D. Lankford
The early work of Joan Baez offers the best of both folk music worlds. She undoubtedly sings within the tradition and will never be confused with the Kingston Trio; she also interprets folk music for a new generation, making it both accessible and relevant. Recorded in 1961, Joan Baez, Vol. 2 was her second album and offered the same traditional songs and simple accompaniment as the first. A daring a cappella version of "Waggoner's Lad" launches the album, while an incisive rendering of "The Lilly of the West" is devastatingly on target.

All Music Guide - Ronnie D. Lankford
The early work of Joan Baez offers the best of both folk music worlds. She undoubtedly sings within the tradition and will never be confused with the Kingston Trio; she also interprets folk music for a new generation, making it both accessible and relevant. Recorded in 1961, Joan Baez, Vol. 2 was her second album and offered the same traditional songs and simple accompaniment as the first. A daring a cappella version of "Waggoner's Lad" launches the album, while an incisive rendering of "The Lilly of the West" is devastatingly on target. The Greebriar Boys contribute their instrumental and vocal talents to these sessions. They add banjo and harmony to one of the best contemporary versions of "Banks of the Ohio" ever recorded and provide fuller accompaniment on a superior version of "Pal of Mine." As with all good traditional singers, Baez seems to live within the songs she sings, conveying the depth of emotion that leads one to jealousy, betrayal, or murder. Much has been written about the beauty of her voice, and all of it is true. Indeed, it is the combination of beauty and deep emotion that pulls the listener into the songs she sings. For those only familiar with later efforts of singer/songwriter Baez, such as Diamonds and Rust, this album will be a revelation. This is an exciting re-release and the three bonus tracks are good. Joan Baez, Vol. 2 is one of the high marks of the folk revival and of Baez' career.

    YOUNG BUT RICH VOICE

    This was the first Joan Baez album I'd ever heard. The sweet high and full strains still are with me when I think of my favorite folk songs. Beautiful accostic album.
