I really loved the Farewell, Angelina album. Loaned it to a friend who loved it too, I never got it back!

JB's early fame as singer, subsequent association with Dylan and activist reputation overshadowed her exquisite and prolific songwriting. If she had never sung a note, she would have been known as a great songwriter IMHO. A few favorites (in addition to Diamonds and Rust):

Love Song to a Stranger

Prison Trilogy (Billy Rose)

Very nice cover, Diane. JB has what I believe is called a "falcon voice".

Here she is using it in a different capacity....
