Monday Inspiration: Joan Baez

Joan Baez was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame a couple days ago, so it seemed appropriate that today’s inspiration is Baez performing “Diamonds and Rust”. I like the sound a lot of those 1970s female folk singers had: Joni Mitchell, Joan Baez, Carly Simon…. The sound is clear and focused, the words are enunciated pretty cleanly, and the melodies are interesting.
