Unlike do many singers of her generation her pitch is still perfect and her choice of writers contemporary and meaningful. The music, wonderful as always. Went to the first UK concert in her current tour and loved it.

Unable to add item to List. Yes her voice has changed but with her added years I felt if anything her tone has mellowed. She's been the soundtrack of my life and long may it continue.

There are 0 reviews and 0 ratings from the United States. Saw her in concert for the second time a few weeks ago & her voice live sounded better to me than 10 or so years ago. The message, loud and clear. She put on a great show but inevitably her voice with age differs from what it was (plus she seemed to be suffering hip problems given she sat for most of the set).

Can't wait. Thank you Joan Baez for making of this iconic recording and please, please, please don't make it your last. This is beautifully put together to support Joan’s farewell tour.
If you already like Joan then add this album to your collection. I was lucky to see her last performance in Birmingham and heating her introduce the songs makes them even better. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.
Can't give 5 stars as that must go to #5, the '64 album which includes There but for fortune & the heart rending Birmingham Sunday. With the good reviews given to her latest album I took a chance and purchased " Whistle Down The Wind" and I couldn't be more pleased with the album.
Joe … However I lost touch with the melancholy voice of Joan Baez for over 50 years. I was introduced to Joan Baez's music in the mid 1960's with a great Album, " Farewell Angelina" which I bought as a 12 inch LP. Decent collection of songs by other writers (Joan has penned a few in her time but never been a singer/songwriter as such). With the good reviews given to her latest album I took a chance and purchased " Whistle Down The Wind" and I couldn't be more pleased with the album.
2018 studio album from the US folk legend & her first in 10 years! Fabulous, as ever.
Her voice is still beautiful, albeit now at a more mellow pitch & not as 'crystal pure' as it once was. Whistle Down the Wind is the 25th and final studio album by American folk singer and musician Joan Baez, released on March 2, 2018, her first studio album in almost a decade.The album features songs written by such composers as Tom Waits, Josh Ritter and Mary Chapin Carpenter.
Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. The voice, though changed, never disappoints. It’s reflective about where society is now and even as she sings The last leaf on the Tree she is hopeful now that the younger generation will pick up the fight for rights and peace.
