Joan Baez: Honest Lullaby
Phil Sutcliffe, Sounds, 18 August 1979
JOAN BAEZ is 38 and has a lifetime of quotable quotes at her disposal from her plaintive remark to an audience in 1961: "The world is in such a mess. I'd like to do something but I don't know what" through to her more recent observation after having tried every way to find out what that something might be, that "People still expect me to be sitting on railroad tracks in the lotus position, holding a bucket of organic honey, making the peace sign and waiting for the oncoming train".
