Possibly this is one of the legendary folk singer Joan Baez’s best albums. Opening with two protest songs, her own moving “Prison Trilogy (Billy Rose)” and “Rainbow Road” with beautiful keyboards. Another Baez composition, “Myths”, is a gentle love song with an optimistic conclusion followed by “In The Quiet Morning” (for Janis Joplin), the poignant tribute written by Mimi Farina. There’s a lovely version of Leonard Cohen’s “The Partisan”; where Cohen has a verse in French, Baez sings the last verse in Greek. The album closes with a beautiful rendition of John Lennon’s “Imagine”. With six of her own compositions ‘Come From The Shadows’ is a masterpiece that has been sorely neglected.
