The Joan Baez Ballad Book was a 1972 compilation of traditional folk material, culled from Joan Baez' first five Vanguard albums. Initially issued as a two-record set, the two records were subsequently re-released separately a few years later as "Volume 1" and "Volume 2". Cover painting was by folk musician and painter Eric Von Schmidt. Though Ballad Book has since been supplanted by the reissue of most of Baez' original Vanguard catalog, for a number of years, it remained the only source to obtain a number of these cuts, as most of her early Vanguard albums temporarily went out of print in the early 1980s.
