Joan Baez in Concert, Part 2 was a second installment of live material, recorded during Joan Baez' concert tours of early 1963. It peaked at number 7 on the Billboard Pop Albums chart.

History[edit]

In Concert, Part 2 is the first Baez album to feature a Bob Dylan cover: "Don't Think Twice It's Alright" and "With God on Our Side" (according to Baez, the first Dylan song she ever learned[citation needed]). Her recording of "We Shall Overcome" was made at Miles College in Birmingham, Alabama, on the same day of the mass arrest of Civil Rights demonstrators in May 1963.

The jacket notes contain an untitled poem by Bob Dylan with the recurring theme "An' I walked my road an' sung my song", which makes reference to Baez and the relationship between the two.

The Vanguard reissue contains five bonus tracks: "Rambler Gambler," "Railroad Bill," "Death of Emmett Till," "Tomorrow is a Long Time" and "When First Unto This Country A Stranger I Came."

Allmusic 4/5 stars[1]

In his Allmusic review, music critic Richie Unterberger wrote of the album "Her repertoire was evolving from purely traditional folk to encompass significant work by contemporary folksinger/songwriters... Baez's growth was not so radical as to alienate any of her folk followers, and the album still featured several traditional folk songs of the sort that had launched her career... The introduction of less-hidebound excursions, though, did much to lighten her approach and keep her from falling into too much of a maiden-of-constant-sorrow rut."[1]
