Baez Bites Bob Back

They were the King & Queen of the folk world in the early 60s (lovers, too). Then Bobby became mean and moved on. Joan carried on with her peace efforts. They "reunited" for the 1975 Rolling Thunder Tour, water long gone under that bridge.

But, she had a few words about ole Bobby. And no, Judas Priest did not write Diamonds & Rust. Album was Joan's highest charting and yielded two hits. Diamonds & Rust (#35, 11/15/75) and a cover of Dickie Betts' Blue Sky (#57, 8/2/75). Sweet Joni joins in for a jazzy wordless duet on a song originally recorded for Joan's Gracias A La Vida.
