Joan Baez - Diamonds and Rust

One of my favourite songs was made famous by Joan Baez who ruled the Woodstock years with her ballads. She sang Diamonds and Rust 10 years later in 1975 after her romance with Bob Dylan had cooled off. During their heyday in the 60s, Dylan had written and sung Lady Lady Lay for Baez. This haunting song with its intricate guitarwork still reaches out through time to grip me. - susan abraham
