There is a Judas Priest cover of this song which is awesome but I never knew how great the original was
Most of the times we listen to music with our ears. But when it comes to this song, we listen with our hearts.
Thanks Joan Baez for this masterpiece !!!!!!
This song is always beautiful and meaningful ….
Yes, i like! Greetings from Finland
Such poetry and what a poetess ! ! ! !
@Cyanarchy : Priest did it as a song .. John Baez is telling a story through this song. This is just a walk through the dead roads of Nostalgia .. Love John Baez ….
Priest did it better.
@ultramegabob2 Lady Ga Ga isn’t a musican, she is an entertainment
Where is the talent like this these days? It makes me sic, that people think that Lady Ga Ga is a musician.
Joan The Great.
the incomparable joan baez…I have seen her twice live, once up close in a small club. As pure a voice as we’re likely to hear, and a brave, shining heart to drive it…
These are lyrics for the ages. A thousand years from now people will find these lyrics as beautifull and meaningfull. That is the mark that Joan will leave in history….. she will be as famous as Shakesperare and Cervantes.
So nice ,so clear,so emotional…..
sorry about multiple posts… couldnt figure out how it worked!!!. Still my favourite apart from the sound track to the film `Silent Running` which was sublime.
to me the original is always better, but I realize too that you guys are so much younger than me, so you never had a chance to hear the original first. Your first imprint of this song will be your favorite, that’s just the way it is. I once found ‘Rocken Robin’ in sheet music from the 1920’s and so many Artists recorded that song.Now some music is being redone from the Supremes and it’s not bad, at least they’re true to the melody, but remember someone did it first and did it very well.
WOW !!! This is one the most beautiful lyrics of all times by an american composer !!! Thanks Joan for giving us this beautiful and meaningful song !!!!.
This is my first time hearing the original song. I admit I did not think Joan Baez version could even come close to the awesome, powerful versions recorded by Judas Priest. I’m sure I’m not alone in saying a duet is long over due. I still feel that JP’s version is better, but that’s just me. After playing the original a few times and really hearing her voice I feel the way JP preforms it is how she truly envisioned it. Wish I could ask Joan that question someday.
probably the best first line of any song…superb voice even today
