Hello all –
Made a move from Nanoose Bay to Mill Bay. Still Vancouver island. Much closer to Leeroy!
During packing, I discovered a Joni Mitchell video from my MuchWest days. It’s a combination of clips from an interview I can’t even remember.
But it’s filled with great quotes from Joni. I sound like I’ve inhaled helium.
Joni and I shared a band house in Regina. For 10 days. Maybe 1966.
Then I hosted the first Greenpeace concert that Joni headlined in Vancouver. We would cross paths later at The Last Waltz.
This Saturday we’ll feature about 5 minutes of Joni clips with three tracks. She talks about The Last Waltz, being incorrectly painted as a Canadian ex-pat in LA and the effect her songs have on people, and what that means to her.
Joni is also the guest on the Mulligan Stew Podcast Episode #200
That is the complete 15:00 interview.
We cover a lot of subjects and her music history.
Neither one of us mention an album or names a song. So I’m not exactly sure when this was recorded. But I’m thinking 1982???
I mention she’s on a speaking tour and Joni talks about organizing a date with Sting, Peter Gabriel, Bryan Adams. That speaks of The Human Rights Concerts (Live in New Jersey). That first concert was in 1986..so let’s call this interview mid-80s.
82’s Wild Things Run Fast
86’s Dog Eat Dog
88’s Chalk mark in a rainstorm
Being influenced by Steely Dan, Thomas Dolby, Willie Nelson, and Peter Gabriel.
It’s the perfect interview to celebrate Podcast 200.
(Thank You Elliott Garnier and Corey Wood for getting me there)
