Mastered from the Original Analog Tape by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio!

Diamonds and Rust in the Bullring is a very difficult-to-find LP, originally released on a small, independent label. It was originally released on a very limited run of vinyl as well. This is a beautiful recording with absolutely fantastic sound. The album includes a performance of her hit song "Diamonds and Rust" as well as the audiophile classic "Famous Blue Raincoat." This may be an under-the-radar title, but it's a can't miss for the discerning audiophile.

The album chronicles a show performed by Baez in a bullring, naturally, in Bilbao, Spain, in 1988, and it demonstrates what makes her such a draw overseas. Half of the collection consists of songs sung in Spanish.

"This record was made in a bullring in Bilbao, Spain, in 1988. It is dedicated to the Mayor and the people pf Bilbao, who came out between thunderstorms to see me perform. The song in Catalan TXORIA TXORI is about a sweet little bird...I want to thank Pasku who taught it to me, and thank the Bilbao public for singing it so beautifully," said Baez about the record.

"Impeccably mastered from the original analog tape by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio, the 200-gram vinyl was plated and pressed at Quality Record Pressings. This small treasure preserves the essense of what makes Baez such a beloved figure on the world stage" - Neil Gader, The Absolute Sound, October 2015
