Presenting Joan Baez

Boston: Folklore Productions, [1965]. 1st Edition. Quarto, publisher's stapled photo-illustrated stiff paper wraps.

Souvenir program for legendary singer and songwriter Joan Baez's "Farewell Angelina" tour. The release of the 1965 album demonstrated a subtle departure from the folk stylings and ballads she had garnered acclaim for to more contemporary tracks, featuring the first instance of electric guitar (by Bruce Langhorne) and a number of songs penned by her on-again, off-again boyfriend Bob Dylan, including the classic title track. With a biographical essay by American jazz pianist Benny Green, a personal statement by Baez, ten full-page black-and-white photos by David Gahr, William Claxton, Jim Marshall, and others (including the reproduced album cover shot by Richard Avedon), along with notes on her six LPs to date. Light rubbing and soiling. Near fine. Item #2988
