Joni Mitchell Newport Folk Festival, 19th July 1969 180g LP
Remastered on 180g Vinyl! First Time on Vinyl!
This superb set was recorded at the legendary Newport Folk Festival in Rhode
Island on the evening of July 19, 1969, within a week of the first moon-landing
and a month prior to Woodstock. Broadcast by PBS as 'The Sounds Of Summer' that
November, it captures Mitchell on the cusp of becoming one of the biggest stars
in the emerging singer-songwriter movement.
Spanning early classics such as Chelsea Morning and The Circle Game, as well as
lesser-known album tracks and the rare Cactus Tree, it culminates with Dino
Valenti's anthemic Get Together, and is essential listening for her legion of
fans. It comes complete with background notes and rare images. Joni participated
in an afternoon Songwriters Workshop during the 1969 festival along with James
Taylor and others. Joni first met James Taylor at this workshop.
