Summary

(This text has been automatically translated by Google translate)
The life story of Joan Baez has everything for an exciting DVD. “When I think back to it, I can't believe that it all really happened,” said the frail singer. How Sweet The Sound, which includes an extra CD with some rare recordings, does full justice to that story. Through interviews with fans and close stakeholders (Jesse Jackson, Roger McGuinn, Bob Dylan, Steve Earle) and of course the lead actress herself, the DVD tells about Joan's childhood in a loving family, her rise as uncrowned queen of the folk scene, her prominent role in the American civil rights movement and its intimate friendships with Martin Luther King and Bob Dylan. At Baez, music and politics were inextricably linked and her story is that of both a celebrated singer and a determined political activist. That fascinating fact lifts How Sweet The Sound far above the average music DVD. Unfortunately, Dutch subtitles are missing. (MS)
