The commentary is classic and worth a read. One of the LPs I owned and loved. I am in the process of writing this piece, and would appreciate comments on her recent outings.
It took me over a couple of months to be able to come back to starting writing about Joan, as Jan 9 draws closer, and I think of her more and more, more and more of the time.
The pain of lyrics like those of D&R, Jesse Come Home, and In the Quiet Morning (not from the D&R release though) is something that one can totally identify with. For me, D&R was more of discovering love songs by a folk and protest icon. My personal adventures, both before and after, have caused her songs of love and longing to be very deeply imprinted on my life.
