Joni Mitchell – Canadian Treasure

I’ve always been a big fan of Joni Mitchell’s but had never heard any live performance. With the wonder of YouTube I can time-travel back to 1969 – 1970s and enjoy her live performance. Now I’m even more impressed!

Chelsea Morning

From what I understand this was written in New York, the Chelsea Hotel, and I’ve never heard a song that so magically invokes that feeling of the perfect day.

And my favorite Joni song of all time…

Help Me

I love the original but this rendition adds such great nuances that it is worth listening to just for her vocal agility. And watch her face, while she sings.

“I’ve seen some hot hot blazes come down to smoke and ash.”
