"The First 10 Years" is a 1970 Joan Baez compilation album, which rounds up highlights of her first decade with the Vanguard label. The album was her first "official" compilation, and includes material ranging from her early 1960s traditional folk, through her Bob Dylan and Phil Ochs covers, to her later experiments with classical orchestraton and country music. Originally released on vinyl as a two-record set, the 1987 CD reissue omitted five songs.

The cover photo was taken by famed rock photographer Jim Marshall. Inside the original gatefold album on the original vinyl release was a photo montage of images from Baez' career.
