New cover album by folksinger Joan Baez

October, 1965 - American folksinger Joan Baez released an album of cover songs: Farewell, Angelina. As with many records released by popular artists in 1965, the title track of the album came from a Bob Dylan song. Dylan's "Farewell, Angelina" was recorded in early 1965, yet wasn't released on a Dylan studio album. Baez's album featured three other Dylan covers, as well as songs by Donovan, Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger.
