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
