Here's something rather special for Joni Mitchell aficionados. An 18-track set
recorded live at The Second Fret club in Philadelphia in 1966, a full two years
before the release of her debut album 'Song To A Seagull'. The concert was
broadcast on Temple University's radio station WRTI on 17/11/66. The sound
quality is surprisingly good and it's enlightening to hear how her material was
shaping up this early on in her musical career. Her voice is, as it always has
been, wonderful and the narrative segues between numbers are delightful.

It's especially interesting to hear the early version of 'Little Green', which did not
appear fully-formed on a recording until its inclusion on 'Blue' in 1972; the melody
and fluidity of the vocal line developed considerably in the intervening years.

Songs such as 'Both Sides Now' and 'The Circle Game', however, appear here
pretty much as we have come to know them on 'Clouds' (1969) and 'Ladies Of The
Canyon' (1970) respectively and it's incredibly poignant to hear the melancholy
'Marcie' from 'Song To A Seagull' sounding so beautifully fresh and as clear as
a bell. If I had to pick one track, however, it would have to be the gorgeous
rendition of 'Michael From Mountains' which is alone worth the price of the album.

'Oh! I wish, I truly wish, I'd been there to see her!

A small treasure.

Essential.

This is a wonderful live recording of the young Joni Mitchell two full years before the release of her first album. Her songwriting genius and originality are already evident, and her performance is brilliant, with a maturity far greater than one would expect from an artist who has just had her 23rd birthday.

There is a fine variety of material here from songs which have become very well known like Both Sides, Now (beautifully performed) to four which have never been released before. They all show Mitchell's fine musical originality and lyrical brilliance. For example, hearing this fine solo performance of Marcie I was struck again by the exceptional craftsmanship of her poetry with the recurring motif of red and green and the quiet brilliance of couplets like:
"And summer goes,
Falls to the sidewalk like string and brown paper"
with its evocative and original imagery and clever, allusive positioning of the word "fall". It is also deeply poignant to hear her sing the lovely Little Green so soon after giving her daughter up for adoption, now that we know what the song is about. The album is full of such things and she sings with real sincerity and plays magnificently. It's an album of real quality.

The sound is pretty good; it's not studio quality but it's perfectly acceptable and captures the live atmosphere well, and Joni's chat between songs is charming and very interesting in places. I find the whole thing exceptionally good. It's not just an interesting historical document for aficionados, although people of a certain age like me will probably find that their bruised and yearning teenage heart comes pounding back. It's actually a really good live album by one of the greatest singer-songwriters of the last 50 years and I recommend it very warmly.

Where has this been for 50 years, it's great and the additional narrative she adds to the songs is of great interest and value. Stand well with all the other albums, hope there's more in the vaults??????

A piece of history here - This was recorded before her first album came out and includes the fabulous Little Green a song written about her daughter which she gave up for adoption when she was first starting out - buy this, you won't be sorry !
