Allmusic.com gave In Concert a 4 star review:
Originally released in 1962, In Concert, Pt. 1 captures the undisputed queen of folk music at the onset of her fabled career….Though Baez was reportedly suffering from stage fright at the time of these recordings, which were cobbled from the fall of 1961 to the spring of 1962, her delivery is crystal clear and confident. … Baez’s performances still retain freshness and vitality after four decades.
