    Sometimes reality is better than fantasy. September 1979 Santa Barbara Bowl, California:

    Joni Mitchell - Vocals, Guitar and song writer
    Pat Methany- Lead Guitar
    Jaco Pastorius- Bass
    Lyle Mays- Keys
    Don Alias- Drums
    Michael Brecker- Sax
    The Persuasions- Backing Vocals (on 2 songs)

    Show is available on YouTube "Shadows and Light". I'd wait in line to see any one of them on their own but together on a single stage playing Joni music...just WOW.

    i saw that line-up. for me, Ozzy was THE singer for Sabbath, but if it couldn't be Ozzy, Dio was the guy you want!

    I never got to see Ozzy in his prime with Sabbath.
    I did attend The End tour.
    Tony and Geezer were phenomenal!
