I was listening to Blue on the way into work today. That and Court And Spark are high water marks for Joni. And she had more that a few.

Joni is at the top of my list. Good to see her out and about in any way, shape, or form! :encouragement:

Court and Spark makes my "you only get 10 CD's to listen to for the rest of your life" list. I've listened to it beginning to end dozens of times and keep hearing new bits of great musicianship throughout.

Ladies of The Canyon

Joni, Crosby and Clapton at Mama Cass's house in Laurel Canyon, likely the inspiration for Peter Tork's own bohemian residential style, story here:

After that, Hissing of Summer Lawns, although I own others....

Oh, 'nuther neat story 'bout who wangled her first demo session:

I graduated from high school in 1969. At some point while still in high school, a group of us found ourselves driving up Laurel Canyon and ended up at a party somewhere. For whatever reasons, I don't remember the details. I only recall thinking it seemed like we had landed on another planet - and you were surrounded by the orbit of money that sustained it.

Court And Spark, The Hissing of Summer Lawns & Hejira are my Joni favs along with the Miles Of Aisles live album of the same period. That's when I really got her: as a teenager. My girlfriend at the time and I saw her play in '82 at the outdoor Pine Knob venue, during the same tour as the show filmed for the Shadows And Light video release. Helluva band she had in addition to herself being at the top of her game. The folks who came expecting a folk show had their senses rearranged a bit, I think. "Who's this Jaco guy and what are all those crazy notes he's playing?!" :)
