Details

Mastered From Original Analog Tape by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio!

A very difficult-to-find recording, originally released on a small, independent label. A beautiful recording with absolutely fantastic sound. Includes a performance of her hit song "Diamonds and Rust" as well as the audiophile classic "Famous Blue Raincoat." 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 demonstates what makes her such a draw overseas. Half of the collection (tracks seven through 12) 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." — Joan Baez. Illustrations by Joan Baez; additional vocals Mercedes Sosa.
