Thanks to the poster of this. I adored the photos, and this is one of the best “I love you, You treated me wrong, I’m over you” songs of all time. Sorry to simplify a song that contains the immortal lyrics “speaking strictly for me, we both could have died then and there.”
I’ve never heard love expressed so well and so painfully.
BTW, I went to a BD concert in the early 80s and left at the interim. He didn’thave a beautiful voice at that time. Camp Joan.
Just a masterpiece!! Nothing more or less!!
Her voice and her singing guitar are simply haunting. Sheer poetic magic.
@MReineck sorry i love this ass don’t hate me
Melts in my heart – still..
This original version sounds bad, Judas Priest made this song new quality, almost legendary… Priest made it more poetry than a poetry singer Baez… I mean the second version of song by Priest mixed slow and fast
@andarys666 I grew up with Priest’s version, but man the feeling and heart you can feel through Joan’s voice is sooooo palpable.
diamonds and rust es una muy buena cancion iso un buen trabajo joan baez pero en mejor la vercion de judas priest en el 1974 como la vercion de joan baez como la de judas priest tiene muy buena letra y claro q todos aman esta cancion
Wow, I listen to this song every day. So powerful & beautiful. I know how she feels!
We’re contemporaries ZadZadrack and some of the best long ago moments of my life happened listening to a Baez album, looking at the sea and doing … well, all the things one does when they’re young. I’m obviously no longer young but her music still goes straight to my heart so Dylan was so wrong.
@ZadZadrack You nailed it Zad … after reading a couple Dylan biographies it was clear to me that his personality was egocentric and he betrayed many friends. But his talent is genius.
As ever, and always remained so: Elegant & Graceful in Soul and Spirit. And that’s Joan Baez.
At my 65 years of age, I still remember to this day the time when Bob Dylan said of Joan that she was nothing more than a beauftiful voice but can’t write songs, or words to this effect. Namely, he was being an ‘A.H.’ and young at that time. lol. But in 2010, and regardless of who had the greatest musical talent, I say: a choice between a Diamon & Rust, I’d compliment the Diamon, for the Rust Got Rustier, and the Diamond got more shining. lol
@andarys666 Your view is shared here too. And her passion and meaning in this song is another tribute to Bob.
this is quite possibly the most powerful voice i have ever had the pleasure to hear, not only through sheer strength but through an inconceivable amalgamation of passion and meaning, this voice will echo through time, my only regret is that i will not live to see its end.
Saw her on a concert in Hanover, Germany, in the mid-eighties. The sound broke down. She continued just with her voice and inthused a 6,000-people-hall. Hardly could see her in the back rows but heard her. Beside the indeniable quality of her songs: Joan can fill a hall just with her voice and guitar. I thank her for this unique experience.
every time i hear this song i like it more!
its very beautiful
@biskitlee Well,Paul Simon started touring in 1962,getting bif in 1964 with Artt G.Maybe you like the vocals.The poems will last.$years from 1964 is 1968 & Paul Simon went on much longer.Bob Dylan put out som much material in so short a 5 decade time,you can’t judge today,like Shakespeare wasn’t well accepted.Dylan recorded from 1963& turned poem on paper to music no one effected music like him then.Jimmy Hendrix,Manfred Mann,the Byrds etc.made many covers of his early work.
@tegenalex what a great comment you are surely a genius
@biskitlee How ’bout Herman’s Hermits. You must love them!
Bob Dylan truly over-rated. Bob has a cult following that holds him up like a god…wrote good stuff for around 5 years, then almost nothing ever since.— Paul Simon even a bigger fraud. Ever heard Paul sing without Art? Not good. Simon had a run for about 4 years and since 1980 he cant even give a song away. –Nobody can come half close to John Lennon & Paul McCartney(not close)…..
This is by far the best sound quality version I’ve heard. Above all on the net anyway.
Great female vocal, poetry, and acoustical guitar. With this song I am in heaven. This music will always be in my heart.
She wrote this about Bob Dylan, Bob Denver, or Bobwhoever, doesn’t matter, what an incredible, eathreal song.
