Joan Baez, American singer, activist, Citizen of the World
We hear her original song "Diamonds and Rust" from 1988 about her romance with Bob Dylan. Her first recordings went gold, from in 1963 we hear "House Carpenter" and "Pretty Boy Floyd" live in concert. Her first recording of a Dylan song was "Don't Think Twice It's Alright" in 1963 and from 1965 Phil Och's "There But for Fortune". In 1968 she recorded "Baptism" with music and orchestration by Peter Schickele. She received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement award in 2007 and Amnesty International created the "Joan Baez Award" for their 50th Anniversary.
