Joan Baez - Diamonds and Rust

Bob Woffinden, New Musical Express, 28 June 1975

THIS ALBUM REPRESENTS Joan Baez's volte-face; after the years of diatribe and tireless dissemination of political views by every available channel, her records included, she's now saying that she felt the need to make a merely musical album, with no political overheads.
