Here is her song:

Joan Baez and our Liberation

I am really grateful to this BAL Govt for recognizing her contribution FINALLY, one noteworthy work from this govt.

Finally Salute to this genius.
You're right and her song is very touching I think people pay attention to George Harrison more because a) he was a Beatle, b) he and Ravi Shankar organized the concert and fundraised an incredible amount of money and c) his performance was recorded for posterity in the Concert for Bangladesh DVD.
