Where Are You Now, My Son?

Come From the Shadows was a 1972 album by Joan Baez. After recording for the independent label Vanguard for more than a decade, Baez signed with A&M, and attempted to point her career in a slightly more "commercial" direction (though the album still had overtly political overtones). In addition to her own compositions "Prison Trilogy", "Myths", and "Love Song to a Stranger", Baez included John Lennon's "Imagine", Anna Marly's "Song of the Partisan", and Mimi Fariña's "In the Quiet Morning (for Janis Joplin)".

The album was recorded at Quadrophonic Sound Studios in Nashville.

The cover photo features an elderly couple being arrested at an anti-war protest, holding hands and flashing peace signs as they are led away.

From the album's liner notes:

"...In 1972 if you don't fight against an rotten thing you become a part of it" - Joan Baez
