great film for Baez fans, and good history of 60's antiwar movement
14 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen this film in a long time, but it is wonderful. The Baez performances are timeless of course. She is shown in concert of course, and also on TV. She is even filmed backstage in the green room before a TV appearance, rehearsing. Her husband at the time, David Harris was a very charismatic speaker. The politics are very left of course, after all this was 1969. Also a great record of what it was like to be young and living in America in a very exciting and vital period. Nice black and white photography. This film was shot just prior to the Woodstock Festival. Joan is at "one of" her vocal peaks here, the A Capella numbers are unbelievable. I would love to see this one make it to DVD.
