Vinyl LP pressing. Joan Baez in San Francisco is a crucial addition to the collection of any Folk completist. It comprises the album-length session that the then-unknown teenager recorded in June 1958. As she later recalled, "I was still in high school when two guys approached me and said 'hey little girl, would you like to make a record?' They were rogues, but I didn't know that. So off we went to San Francisco where I recorded everything I knew on a gigantic borrowed Gibson guitar." the LP includes a dozen songs ranging from recent hit songs like "La Bamba," "Young Blood," and Harry Belafonte's "Island in the Sun" to Folk club standards "Oh Freedom," "I Gave My Love a Cherry," and "Dark as a Dungeon." a curio from the very dawn of her career - a demo tape that failed in it's stated purpose of landing her a record deal - in San Francisco remains an interesting glimpse into the early career of one of the absolute legends of 1960 s Greenwich Village Folk!
