    He bought her a diamond for her throat
    He put her in a ranch house on a hill
    She could see the valley barbecues
    From her window sill
    See the blue pools in the squinting sun
    Hear the hissing of summer lawns

    "Old man sleeping on his bags
    Women with that teased up kind of hair
    Kids with the jitters in their legs
    And those wide wide open stares
    And the kids got cokes & chocolate bars
    There's a thin man smoking a fat cigar
    Jealous lovin'll make you crazy
    If you can't find your goodness
    Cause you've lost your heart

    What are you going to do now
    You've got no one to give your love to

    Well I've got this berth & this roll down blind
    I've got this fold up sink
    And these rocks
    And these cactus going by
    And a bottle of German wine to drink
    Settle down into the clickety clack
    With the clouds & the stars to read
    Dreaming of the pleasure I'm gonna have
    Watching your hairline recede, my vain darling"

    This is from the 'Dick Cavett' show, 1969.
    Remember he had a late night talk show.
    Looks like he really cared about the music.

    His guest that night was Joni, The Jefferson Airplane and Crosby and Stills.

    If I had to pick one song by her, it would be 'For Free'.



    When she does 'Chelsea Morning' the guitar tuning isn't standard (it's open D) and the song just takes off...

    'They Fed Me To The Beast': Joni Mitchell At The Isle Of Wight Festival

    "A bit of a disaster" is how Joni Mitchell described an out-of-control August afternoon in 1970, when she gave a courageous performance at England's Isle of Wight Festival. Watching Both Sides Now: Live at the Isle of Wight Festival 1970, a new documentary by Oscar-winning director Murray Lerner, one sees how Mitchell tamed an agitated audience with a few fresh songs, a wide smile and a couple of astringent reprimands."

    The Magic of Joni Mitchell’s Open Tunings

    [​IMG]

    At age nine (1952), Joni Mitchell contracted polio, and was hospitalised for weeks. Eventually she taught herself guitar from a Pete Seeger songbook. The polio had weakened her left hand, so she devised alternative tunings to compensate; she later used these open tunings to create non-standard approaches to harmony and structure in her songwriting.

    According to Joni, she used no fewer than 57 different open tunings in the compositions she recorded and performed throughout her career. Open tuning simply allowed her to form the chord shapes she couldn’t have played otherwise. In Joni’s opinion, these are the simplest tunings she uses:

    Double drop D (DADGBD)
    Open G (DGDGBD)
    Open D (DADF#AD)
