Speaking of the Moon and Music

The last performer I saw in concert in the decade previous to this one was Joan Baez.  She was stunning as usual, looking fit and healthy as a sexagenarian who’s devoted over four decades to passionate activism through the sharing of songs and empathic insights.

Her voice still strong and clear as ever.  I have always loved her covers of Dylan best.  And at times I’ve thought she had nailed it . . even better than Bob could do.  Here are Percy’s Song and Love is Just a Four Letter Word.

I can’t remember if she actually sang Percy’s Song, (damn that’s a beauty) since the concert  was a few years ago, but I do remember that she did my all time favorite Joan Baez song, the one she’s remembered for composing on the topic of Bob.  😉

Anyway after she finished her first encore, the crowd went as crazy as middle-aged people can go for more and as everyone was clapping and howling, I heard someone shout from a few rows ahead of me: Take it to the Full Moon, Joanie.

And there it was, the one I had been waiting for all night:

OK I’m going to be quiet now. . .and just let you listen to the beauty of this.

And next  speaking of tongues, here is one more song with the moon in it.

Rock on!  I am done here.  xo
