Description
Much like her friend Bob Dylan—whose "Simple Twist of Fate" is affectionately covered here—Joan Baez had moved beyond strict folk music by the time she made this 1975 recording, incorporating strings, horns, and synthesizer. Along with the haunting title track, the 11 songs here include Baez's renditions of Stevie Wonder's "Never Dreamed You'd Leave in Summer," Janis Ian's ethereal "Jesse," and the Allman Brothers' "Blue Sky," with Larry Carlton on lead guitar. Baez is joined by pianist Hampton Hawes on "Children and All That Jazz," while Joni Mitchell joins in on the wordless scat-fest in "Dida."

"The real hit was the title track, a self-penned masterpiece.... It was her finest moment as a songwriter and one of her finest performances.... The cover songs were typically accomplished, making this the strongest album of Baez's post-folk career."—Allmusic.com
