Joan Baez - Played at Woodstock, Month of August tribute

Joab Baez - played at Woodstock.  This is Blessed are...Here we have the angel of Woodstock with her post-Woodstock effort Blessed Are... "was a 1971 album by Joan Baez, and her last with Vanguard Records.  It included her hit cover of The Band's "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down", and work by Kris Kristofferson, the Beatles, Jesse Winchester and The Rolling Stones, as well as a significant number of Baez' own compositions.  Like its immediate predecessors, the album was recorded in Nashville, and had a decidedly country feel.  The original vinyl version (shown above) was released as a double album, which also included a bonus 7" 33 rpm record (I looked, that bonus record is not in my collection) that included the songs "Maria Dolores" and Woody Guthrie's "Deportee", which she dedicated to the farmers of the world, adding, "May they soon cease to be victims."  The 2005 Vanguard reissue consolidated the original album, plus "Maria Dolores" and "Deportee" onto a single CD, as well as a previously unreleased bonus track, "Warm and Tender Love"."
