A Dozen Demos From Baez's Early Career!

Joan Baez in San Francisco is a crucial addition to the collection of any folk completist. It comprises the album-length session that the then-unknown teenager recorded in June 1958. As she later recalled, "I was still in high school [when] two guys approached me and said 'hey little girl, would you like to make a record?' They were rogues, but I didn't know that. [So] off we went to San Francisco [where] I recorded everything I knew on a gigantic borrowed Gibson guitar." The LP includes a dozen songs ranging from recent hit songs like "La Bamba," "Young Blood," and Harry Belafonte's "Island in the Sun" to folk club standards "Oh Freedom," "I Gave My Love a Cherry," and "Dark as a Dungeon." A curio from the very dawn of her career - a demo tape that failed in its stated purpose of landing her a record deal – In San Francisco remains an interesting glimpse into the early career of one of the absolute legends of 1960s Greenwich Village folk!
