The 30 collective tracks contained on Recently (originally released July 1987), Diamonds and Rust in the Bullring (recorded live in Bilbao, Spain, 1988, released April 1989) and Speaking of Dreams(November 1989) hold their own as some of the greatest song selection sequences of Joan’s entire discography.

Baez began working with Gold Castle Records in 1987 at the invitation of music industry veteran and company founder Danny Goldberg. The three records that resulted represent the virtual halfway point of her professional career.
