"Farewell, Angelina" is an album by American folk singer Joan Baez, released in late 1965. It peaked at #10 on the Billboard Pop Albums chart.

History[edit]

The album represented a further shift from the strictly traditional folk music with which Baez had begun her career in that, for the first time, she included electric backup in the form of Bruce Langhorne's electric guitar (which was nonetheless subtle). Additional musicians included Russ Savakus (bass) and Ralph Rinzler (mandolin). The album included four Bob Dylan tunes, including the title song and "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall", as well as a German reading of "Where Have All the Flowers Gone".

The cover photo was taken by Richard Avedon.

In the UK the title song was issued as a single on Fontana Records.

The 2002 reissue of the album by Vanguard features three previously unreleased additional tracks from the Farewell, Angelina sessions: "One Too Many Mornings", "Rock, Salt, And Nails", and "The Water Is Wide".

Legacy[edit]

In a retrospective summary for Allmusic, Bruce Eder commented on how Baez was expanding along with the folk-rock of the 60s. He felt that in addition to Baez, the album contained good work by Langhorne and Richard Romoff on string bass.[1]
