I have had naughty dreams about this woman for over 40 years.

The most beautiful woman is not necessarily the sexiest woman. Joni Mitchell is not the prettiest woman, but she sure does it for me.

That entire album was brilliant. And the next one, almost as good. After that, not too sure. But Free Man in Paris, Big Yellow Taxi, and Court and Spark are certainly classics.

IMHO Joni Mitchell has never done anything short of genius. I saw her solo in a coffee house in 1966, and it was one of the most memorable music experiences of my life. The last time she came to town she sold out the Academy of music in 30 minutes.

She is a goddess

Just another piece of green socialist central planning propaganda.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Oh, weren't those the days, tho. Nothing like them since. Thanks for that.

Yes between 1965 and 1975 were the best years of my life.

Ahh the memories, seems like only yesterday.

Hi Al,

I had an uncomfortable experience the last time I saw JM live, in Atlanta. On her birthday. She was the "warm-up" act for Bob Dylan, and his young fans were not very patient with her. I thought her guitar playing was quite good, and overall, I think I enjoyed her performance more than I enjoyed Bob's.

Yes I'm aware that her greatness has skipped a generation. She seems to be loved by only the old and the very young. The rock and roll theater I belong to has a lot of shows where the whole audience has grey hair. When Raul Malo plays there the hall is packed with rock and roll grannies dancing in the aisles.

Interesting - I had the TV playing an all night music show in the background last night and Bob Dylan came on singing Hurricane and I was shocked at how bad I found it - though I loved it back in the day.

But Al - your post started me playing Joni - but ended with Melanie - no one can do angst like Melanie - I hope the neighbours didn't hear me singing along to Ruby Tuesday and Mr Tambourine Man. Smile

Tonight I feel is Buffy St Marie night.

For me, the original studio version of Hurricane still stands up as one of Dylan's best songs. Did you feel that the performance was bad or that the song itself doesn't hold up? The last time I saw Dylan in concert--maybe thirty years ago--he was so boring and unwilling to share himself that I've never wanted to see him live again. The records though are a different story.

Joni Mitchell! Man, was I in love with HER! Then, in 1997, I met a girl that looked like her twin sister! Sadly, breast cancer took her from me. I'll never forget her... Smile

That may have been the problem with the performance I saw last night - he looked bored - there was an incredibly earnest girl playing the violin beside him, and he mumbled the whole song - if he'd been better I might have bothered to look for my ear trumpet.

Agree, except for the "one of.". Maybe he lost his passion for it now that Carter is out of prison.

Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.

I don't get it when people say that a musician wasn't into his music enough to do a good show. I have don't well over 5,000 birthday parties, and the adrenalin rush at every gig is just as strong today as it has ever been. All performers get excited at every show. The stage is where you shine, and there is no drug that I know of stronger than the rush of adrenalin. Instant gratification is what it is all about guys.
