Joan Baez: Diamonds & Rust (1975)

Human Love

Joan Baez: “Diamonds & Rust” (1975) in a hauntingly beautiful and personal song about her previous memorable  love relationship with Bob Dylan, one of the most beautiful songs of its kind. Now, love is essential for humans, which is why it is sought and why it is written and sung about; love has many qualities that are good. There is no replacement for love, only counterfeits, which some accept as the genuine article (e.g., I can't recall any songs or poetry claiming the virtues of money, yet some worship it.). This beautiful song is the title track on the same-named album, which was released in April 1975. Now you're telling me/You're not nostalgic.
