Honest Lullaby Album

Joan Baez

About Honest Lullaby

Honest Lullaby is a 1979 album by Joan Baez. It would be her final album on CBS Records' Portrait imprint, and her last new studio album issued in the U. S. until 1987. The autobiographical title song was written for her son, Gabriel Harris, and was performed on The Muppet Show in 1980. In addition to her own compositions, the album contained work by Janis Ian and Jackson Browne. "Let Your Love Flow" was originally a 1976 hit for The Bellamy Brothers. In her 1987 memoir, And a Voice to Sing With, Baez speculated that she was likely dropped from CBS due to a political disagreement she'd had with the label's then-president. Baez dedicated the album to the memory of journalist John L. Wasserman. (Wasserman, who had died the previous February, had written the liner notes to Baez's 1977 compilation, The Best of Joan C. Baez). Cover photos were taken by famed photographer Yousuf Karsh.
