The Contemporary Ballad Book was a 1974 Joan Baez compilation, released by Vanguard after the success of the Joan Baez Ballad Book. Unlike the first Ballad Book, this one focused on singer-songwriter material, rather than traditional folk. This new compilation contained one previously unreleased track, the Italian song, C'era un ragazzo che come me amava i Beatles e i Rolling Stones ('There was this guy who, just like me, loved the Beatles and the Rolling Stones'), taken from Baez' performance at the Isle of Wight Festival.

At a time when Baez was changing labels and branching into contemporary folk and country styles, Joan Baez Ballad Book harks back to her roots. Vanguard released this generous compilation of traditional Anglo-American folk ballads (culled from Baez's early-'60s material) as a double-LP (later reissued as two separate LPs). Taken en masse, the performances cement Baez's reputation as a premier interpreter of traditional song. Because the compilation is weighted exclusively towards the early folk songs, Joan Baez Ballad Book may not be the definitive Baez compilation. But for folk purists, students of traditional ballad, and Baez fans who don't want to collect all the early albums, this is a potent compilation.
