Folk legend Joan Baez offers her most successful album in years with this collection of warm, spirited interpretations of songs by five talented (although not widely known) young songwriters.

Full Descriptionmaturity and experience to literate and heartfelt songs like Dar Williams' stark portrait of loss, "February," and Sinead Loban's "No Mermaid," a quietly triumphant celebration of personal freedom.

GONE FROM DANGER illustrates Baez's admirable talent for recognizing the best, most innovative songwriters and bringing them to the attention of a wider audience. The big news is the mainstream arrival of superlative songwriter/cult hero Richard Shindell, who's recorded several albums of trenchant, poetic songs and is championed here by Baez. She offers her interpretations of his "Reunion Hill," "Fishing" and "Money For Floods," and one is reminded of the way Judy Collins' genteel cover versions brought a young Leonard Cohen into suburban dens and college dorms everywhere

Bonus Disc:
Contains complete 1997 Mountain Stage performance on which Joan is joined by Dar Williams, Sinead Lohan, Richard Shindell and Betty Elders, performing many of the songs from 'Gone From Danger'. Includes never before released concert favourite "Long Bed From Kenya" and duet with Sinead Lohan of Dylan's "To Ramona".
