And a Voice
to Sing With
In Part 7 Joan Baez writes about her
sister Mimi Farina and a performance at Symphony Hall Boston for The Club 47 Reunion. The
reminiscence is not dated but it may refer to the concert which was broadcast on WGBH-FM
Boston, parts of which were released as the album "Tom Rush - Late Night Radio"
"I began to relax and allow myself to feel total
admiration for my little sister, when suddenly she was saying, "There is someone
missing from this stage tonight," and I didn't know who she was going to name - Tom
Jans, her singing partner for years who died as a result of internal injuries from a car
wreck? - Steve Goodman ... or one of the sixties souls like Janis Joplin or Geno Foreman ?
