"Joan" was a 1967 album by Joan Baez. Having exhausted the standard voice/guitar folksong format by 1967, Baez collaborated with composer Peter Schickele (with whom she'd worked on the 1966 Christmas album, "Noël"), on an album of orchestrated covers of mostly then-current pop and rock and roll songs. Works by Donovan, Paul Simon, Tim Hardin, the Beatles and Richard Farina were included, as well as selections by Jacques Brel and Edgar Allan Poe.

The recording of "Children of Darkness" was a tribute to Baez's brother-in-law, novelist and folk singer Richard Fariña, who was killed in a motorcycle accident a year earlier.

"La Colombe" is a French anti-war anthem about French soldiers being sent to fight Algeria in the latter country's bid for independence.

Miscellanea

According to the liner notes on the 2003 reissue, in the cover photo of Baez, she was actually lying down. The photographer spun the photo around so it looked as though she was sitting or standing upright.
