商品説明

Despite her Latin heritage, Joan Baez probably wouldn't have been encouraged by her 1960s record label, the New York-based independent Vanguard, to sing an entire album in Spanish. At A&M Records, the Los Angeles firm co-founded by Herb Alpert that she joined in the early '70s, however, it would have been a different story, and it was A&M that released Gracias a la Vida (Here's to Life) in 1974. Baez demonstrates an affinity for Mexican folk music on such obvious choices as Cucurrucucu Paloma, but it's no surprise that, a year after the assassination of leading nueva cancion folksinger Victor Jara in a military coup in Chile, an atrocity that shocked the American folk community, she has not backed away from her political commitments. There is Guantanamera, a song that may have been a Top Ten U.S. hit for the Sandpipers in 1966, but that has political implications, as Pete Seeger has been reminding listeners for more than a decade. There is a Spanish version of We Shall Not Be Moved (No Nos Moveran) with a lengthy spoken introduction. There are songs like El Preso Numero Nueve (Prisoner Number Nine; repeated from 1960's Joan Baez) and Esquinazo del Guerrillero (The Guerillas Serenade). And, inevitably, there is a song of Jara's, Te Recuerdo Amanda (I Remember You Amanda), which the slain singer wrote for his mother. But then there is also Dida, a wordless duet with Joni Mitchell. Throughout, Baez demonstrates her mastery of Spanish singing over authentic arrangements while attempting to stir up her Spanish-speaking listeners just as she does their English-speaking compatriots. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi

Joan Baez

The most accomplished interpretive folksinger of the 1960s, Joan Baez has influenced nearly every aspect of popular music in a career still going strong. Baez is possessed of a once-in-a-lifetime soprano, which, since the late '50s, she has put in the service of folk and pop music as well as a variety of political causes. Starting out in Boston, Baez first gained recognition at the 1959 Newport Fo
