I found this little gem on youtube. I've always liked this JT song but her voice makes it better.
Theres a download of their concert together in England from the early 70s. Very good sound. I got it awhile back and turned it into a CD . I ll see if I still have the link.
Love em’ both!
JT sings great harmony.
Thanks, I never heard this performance before!
New to me, too. Love it. Thanks!
I think the clip you ve posted is from this. Perfect time for Joni live, songs from the first albums thru "Blue". Thanks for your post, reminded me about it.
Thanks for the link. I'll check it out.
Always loved Joni. I especially like "Blue". Great album.
And I thought for years she was the stereotypical California girl......then I found out she was Canadian....!
A brilliant lyricist, composer and magnificent voice. My daughter once thanked me for introducing her to Joni Mitchell's music. She is not nearly as appreciated as she should be IMO.
Anyway, while CSN&Y's version is more widely known the original is epic. (Obviously Bad Company borrowed that chord sequence for their self titled song). The spirit of this tune is long gone but the words still relevant.
That's a beautiful song. I always loved Linda Ronstadt's version as well, not quite as gentle as this one but really wonderful.
I think Joni Mitchell is one of the singular talents of her generation. Fine singer, AMAZING songwriter, and a seriously underrated rhythm guitarist as well, Some of the stuff she came up with on albums like Hejira are pretty amazing.
Just another thought that this last video reminded me of. Have you ever noticed how many great singers have HUGE MOUTHS? Seriously, I've always wondered how much of that is coincidence and how much of that big aural chamber and front door helps people form and change and play around with notes and sounds. I personally have a TINY mouth - I keep a beard so people will realize I even have a mouth. Drives dentists crazy when they have to work in there. And, coincidentally or not, I'm the worst singer yet discovered among the human race. I mean, I'm just terrible when I try to sing. On my very very best days I'm only slightly less awful. I like to attribute this all to the size of my mouth relative to so many great singer, but I'm not sure how much that has to do with it...
"Amelia" from Hejira is a stunning song. I could listen to it for hours.
Here's an odd duet pairing with Joni. They did "The Thrill is Gone" but she didn't know the song that well.
She did have good taste in guitars!
loved "shadows & light"...
live album with pat metheny and jaco pastorius in the band.
Hejira is just an amazing album. Amelia is one of my all-time favorite songs.
Hejira may be my favourite record of all times and Amelia my favourite song.
And thanks for all the above links!
Wonderful piece - two of the best acoustic players/singers/songwriters on the planet sharing a song - magical
Both great artists. I haven't been able to watch the OP video yet - but I will do.
I tend to have a bit of a love/hate thing with Joni Mitchell, particularly when she goes a bit "free-form" as I call it. Awesome voice but she can, on occasion, be a bit shrill for my tastes (and I'm a big Geddy Lee fan ).
her concert with Metheny, "Shadows and Light," is one of the greatest live performances I've ever heard and, as far as I'm concerned, set the bar for every show since
what a writer!
