Joan Baez in Concert, Part 1 was a live album taken from the singer's 1962 concert tours. It was Baez's version of "Babe, I'm Gonna Leave You", more commonly associated with Led Zeppelin, that brought the song to Jimmy Page and Robert Plant's attention (Page played on two other versions of the song with Marianne Faithfull and Steve Winwood [1968]). Malvina Reynolds' "What Have They Done to the Rain" (about nuclear fallout) was the first "topical" song Baez ever recorded.

"Até Amanhã" is a Brazilian love song and is sung entirely in Portuguese.

The Vanguard reissue contains three previously unreleased tracks, "Streets of Laredo" (later covered by Johnny Cash on 2002's The Man Comes Around), "My Good Old Man" and "My Lord What A Morning."
