In 1987, the "Madonna of Folk" returned to U.S. record shops with a vengeance, delivering her interpretations of songs by Dire Straits, Johnny Clegg, U2 and Peter Gabriel performers, writes AllMusic, whose political consciousness had been formed by listening to old Joan Baez albums.
The classic has been kicked it up a notch. Several notches, in fact. This 200-gram stunner, pressed at Quality Record Pressings, was expertly remastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio. Lacquer plating was by QRP's master technician Gary Salstrom, topped off by a heavy cardboard gatefold jacket from Stoughton Printing with vibrantly reproduced original artwork. How does it get any better?
The title track from Recently is a stunning Joan Baez original, where she boldly answers ex-husband David Harris' downbeat memoir of the '60s, Dreams Die Hard, as well as other '80s revisionists.
The track "Asimbognagna" was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Recording.
