"Joan Baez/5" was a 1964 album by Joan Baez. Unlike her prior albums, Joan Baez/5 was divided evenly between (then) contemporary work, and traditional folk material. Her reading of "There But for Fortune" provided useful exposure to writer Phil Ochs, and she also included Bob Dylan's "It Ain't Me Babe" and Johnny Cash's "I Still Miss Someone", as well as a number of traditional English and American folk songs. Director Spike Lee included Baez' recording of Richard Farina's "Birmingham Sunday" (about the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing in 1963, in which four young African American girls lost their lives) in his 1997 documentary Four Little Girls.

"5" is also notable for the simple fact that it is Baez's first work to feature overtly political and topical material; "There But For Fortune" and "Birmingham Sunday".

Liner notes were written by Langston Hughes.
