In fall of 1971 we were all really enjoying hearing Joan Baez singing The Band's song 'The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down.' She made the song immensely popular and more folks started to learn about the great music The Band had been writing. The song was on her last LP for her old label Vanguard..she would leave and come to A&M Records where she recorded some of her most epic LPs including her 1975 huge hit LP Diamonds & Rust.
