1:38 pm - help!


i'm hoping that maybe some of you can lead me in the right direction for a paper i'm working on. i've been assigned to do a paper on crime cases in new york city from 1850-present, and how they have served as vehicles for discussion of serious issues that had previously been left undiscussed. i'm attempting to do the project using 20th century folk songs (hopefully from the 1960s/1950s NYC folk scene) which were influenced by particular crime cases (i.e. cases dealing with racism, communism, anything), and raised awareness of the issues at hand. the hard part here is that the case had to have occurred in NYC.

if anyone can understand what i mean by that: are there any particular joan baez songs that you think would be good for this?

please let me know what you think! any input is greatly appreciated. thanks!

3:08 pm - A special evening with Joan Baez, 13.03.2007, Erfurt, Germany


Joan started the concert with Farewell Angelina and it was clear that she's in a perfect shape - both voice and guitar. After Angelina she sang a song of Elvis Costello which called something about Tight, I don't remember the name for sure. After that there were some quite old songs including Gospel ship and Long black veil, but I don't like them anyway ;). The following songs were With god on our side and Caleb Meyer, the latter one is from the last studio album, and the cover ot Tom Waits' The day after tomorrow - very beautiful and sad ballad about a soldier who is going to return home on the day after tomorrow and who has to fight not for democracy or ideas but for his life. El Preso Numero Nueve was followed by the great songs which I listened to with tears in my eyes - Imagine and Love is just a four-letter word - they are my favorites and I couldn't even imagine to hear Joan singing them live. Somewhere in between (or maybe a little bit later, I am not sure about the order of the songs) there was a german song Wenn unserer Bruder kommen. Joan communicated with the auditorium very intensive, friendly and nice and she told something like 'I am told that I sing it with the Bavarian accent (it's the worst german accent), but it's because it was Konstantin Wecker who taught me' (he's a popular German singer-songwriter who toured with Joan and Mercedes Sosa in 1988). Joan also did many great jokes during the evening and they were very funny, like 'in Woodstock we had 4 days of scheise wetter' (which means 'shitty weather', the expression is very popular in Germany, almost as popular as 'alles klar' which means 'Did you get it?' and showed that Joan had some experience in communicating with germans ;) ). The funniest moment was when Joan, after explaining the meaning of a song for quite along, asked how many people understood what she was talking about. After having a look at the amount of raised hands she said 'what are you all doing here?', then laughed and said 'well, thank you for coming and being here with me anyway :)', it was very funny, at least for me ;). Joan wanted to finish a concert with Diamonds & Rust (her guitar sounded amazing on the song), but it didn't work out. She had to return 3 times for the encore. For the first one she sang Jerusalem and Finlandia, for the second one, when many people gathered before the stage, she sang Sag mir wo die Blumend sind? (it's Where have all the flowers gone? in German) and Donna, Donna - and the whole auditorium was singing with her on the both of them and on the 3rd encore - Sind do kleine Hande, very nice and touching german song about children. I think, there were some more songs but I just don't remember them.

Before the beginning of the concert I was interested what is sold at the Merchandise table, so I came there and acquainted with Jim Stewart, a very nice man who is Joan's merchandise manager and writes articles for Joan's official web-site. He was very nice and it was very nice to talk to him. He told that there's a chance that Joan is going to sing 'Let it be' or 'Imagine' which she was rehearsing before the concert, and I was thrilled about it (finally she sang 'Imagine' and it was one of the greatest moments of the concert). After the concert Jim was very kind and gave me a hand to meet Joan and say thanks to her.

I have never thought that I would have a chance to see Joan live, to hear my favorite singer singing my favorite songs, so it was a kind of dream that came true. Above it, I could never imagine meeting Joan personally and talking to her. I still feel happy when I think of the great, really special evening with Joan Baez. Thank you very much for it, Joan and Jim.

current mood: happy

7:51 pm - Joan's Grammy Appearance 2/11/2007

Did anyone else see Joan open the Grammy's by introducing the Dixie Chicks as the first act of the night? She was beautiful as always -- what a way to be introduced! I was shocked to see her there, and very pleased that she was there to lead us into a great performance by the Chicks.

I love Joan, it totally made my night!

6:42 am - Baez in Austin

I went to see Joan perform in Austin last Friday, 10/27. I'm a lifetime fan of Joan for many reasons and I must say that seeing her felt surreal. Her voice was absolutely amazing. Amazing. When she started a very, very touching version of Diamonds and Rust I was shifting from "is this real?" to "holy crap this is real!"

She did an astounding version of Christmas in Washington that brought tears to my eyes. I am so happy, and so thankful that I was able to see her live in person. I have wanted to my entire life and now the time came.

Her mother was in the audience, too, and she stood up to thunderous applause. It reminded me though that Mimi is gone.

She is an amazing musician and an amazing person. I'm very touched and thankful that we have her in this world.

Anyone have theories on the lyrics of "Rider, Pass By"?
I was reading them and it looks like they could be about feminism, but I feel like I'm missing a specific cultural or historical reference that might clarify things a bit.

Tell me when you see them
Gathered at the shore
Dancing on their broken chains
Ah, the ladies are no more
In their blue jeans and their necklaces
Against an evening sky
But some of them are weeping
Crying rider, please pass by

The ship with all the riders
Has drifted out to sea
Compass cracked and stars unnamed
It's lost to history
And the riders in captivity
Watch ancient waves roll high
And hear the distant voices
Crying rider, please pass by

All you men who should have been
Your fathers beat you down
Your mothers loved you badly
Your teachers stole your crowns
And the wars you fought have taken toll
The price was far too high
You've buried all the images
Of riders passing by

The horses of the riders
Have waited at the tide
But years have passed, they know at last
Their heroes will not ride
So the women oh so gracefully
Mount noble horses high
Shattering the timelessness
Of rider, please pass by

But who can dare to judge us
The women or the men?
If freedom's wings shall not be clipped
We all can love again
So the choice is not of etiquette
Or finding lonesome ways to die
But liberty to ships at sea
And riders passing by

But liberty to ships at sea
And riders passing by
