Thanks you Lizardson for post my contribution,
More Fariña´s for your friends:


Richard & Mimi Farina
"Memories" 1968 + "Newport Folk Festival" 1965
















Margarita Mimi Baez ( born april 30, 1945, California ) sister of the folk singer Joan Baez, at the age of 17 married by Richard George Fariña ( born march 8, 1937, Brooklyn ).
They record together only two studio albums: "Celebrations for a Grey Day" (April, 1965) and "Reflections in a Crystal Wind" (December, 1965).
On April 30, 1966 Richard was killed instantly in a motorcycle accident.
In the fall of 1968 Mimi compiled the posthumus "Memories".


And see the TV appearance on Rainbow Quest Show:

Mimi & Dick Farina "House Un-American Blues Activity Dream"

these clips are the ONLY place to see Richard Farina speak and play. And to some of us, his stature mighta-coulda rivaled a Dylan's: or witness his 2 Cornell pals' legendary achievements {T. Pynchon and Brice Marden, who married the third Baez sister]...Such a gifted novelist + musician, wa-a-a-a-ah!

trax to notice on memories - blood red roses, Pack up your sorrows (the hit) The Quiet Joys of Brotherhood-some fairy god seemed to have anointed these two because they were so young and yet so mature. the moral of the story is stay off of motorcycles
