Joni Mitchell
Live – Germany probably 1968 but possibly 1969. Its also not sure if this was recorded in Germany as there is no other indication Joni played Germany in 1968

“I got this as a CDR in a trade a few years back. It is supposed to have been recorded in Germany in 1968 or 1969 but I’ve never been able to confirm the details. If anyone could positively identify it I would be grateful.”

Now the first uploader of this show listed in Dimebot (from 2006), docruper writes:

“This is a mysterious but very high-quality recording of Joni in 1967, 1968, or 1969. Early Joni, featuring her beautiful 1960s voice and a recording that is astoundingly good–crisp, clear, no static, very little hiss.”

However, the size of docruper torrent file does not match puckoon’s.

Puckoon’s folder size matches up exactly with that of a file of a remaster by briggY added to DIME in late 2006 — and judging by the description, it sounds like it — but some of the briggY track times listed differ slightly (a further remaster?).

But just for the halibut, let’s get briggY with it…

Joni Mitchell
Unknown Venue, supposedly (West) Germany (?) 1968 (?)

total time 38:58

I noticed that this amazingly high-quality recording of an absolutely stunning solo performance had dropped off the tracker, so I decided to put it back — this is DEFINITELY one that everyone should have. Its origins are completely mysterious, though — it circulates as “Germany 1968”, but Joni didn’t play in Germany in 1968. During the intro to “Dr. Junk” she talks about her visit to Fort Bragg, Fayetteville, and since she first played Fayetteville on January 3rd, 1967 and again in May of that year, her remark that the visit was “about 2 years ago” suggests that this performance took place in 1969. I think the presence of “Dr Junk” in the setlist would argue against the show being far into that year, since it’s a throwaway song that didn’t stay in her repertoire for very long. The best guess, then, would be very early 1969, but where is more of problem — although perhaps it COULD be Germany (did she play there in 1969? the jonimitchell.com chronology has no record of any European dates between London Sep 1968 & London Jan 1970 — which can’t be right, surely?) — her phrase “my country’s capitol” in the “Roses Blue” preamble seems to refer to Washington DC rather than Ottawa, which places the performance outside of North America (and that song itself, though not an easy one to decipher, was probably written after the darker events of 1968 — the King & RFK assassinations, Chicago and the election of Nixon).

I was going to seed the show exactly as received via the JMDL hub — the same version upped here previously — but when I took a close look at the wav files I found SBEs — tiny ones, but they were there (as the lineage claims alignment was done, I imagine they’re historical). I went through and got rid of these manually, then decided to up the levels and shift the tracking just a little whilst I was in there. I also fixed a nasty little glitch right at the beginning and faked a less abrupt fade at the very end. There was no temptation to use any nr or eq as the sound quality is great. It’s an exercise in gilding the lily, but this particular lily was worth it.

lineage: SBD > ? > acousticharmonies Vine CDR > Wav (EAC secure mode) > Flac frontend (level 8, aligned & verified)
remaster: > WAV (SBEs manually fixed, tracking & levels adjusted, flaws at start & end fixed with ACL10) > WAV (fixed SBEs with TLH) > FLAC level 8

I have a theory – a theory that is mine. This is my theory… That this show took place before her first album, my favorite “Song To A Seagull,” was released in March of 1968.

For one, Joni never mentions that she has an album out at all. And the audience does not seem to get extra excited about the songs she plays off it.

Plus one, the only song she introduces that comes from that album, “Michael From Mountains…” Joni pauses a moment before starting up, but no one in the audience makes a single sound that resembles recognition.

Maybe the folkies there were just being cool. Maybe they were just jealous she had an album out and they didn’t. But then that is not cool.

I know for one if I knew, this here Mike, his heart would have at least just jumped for crying out loud for joy for just one mountainous moment.

original comments from glasnostrd19 in 2009:

A real early solo acoustic show with Joni Mitchell. This is the earliest Joni I’ve ever heard and she already had her distinctive vocal style. She does a bit of talking between some of the tunes, I didn’t bother to seperate the talk into its own tracks as some like to do. I’ve had this tape for years, no idea of its lineage, there is likely a better source for this out there somewhere but this is quite listenable for a 41 year old analog recording. it does have one rather annoying but very brief speed problem in the source recording (or transfer between that and my copy), otherwise the recording is pretty good, especially for this early date, and Joni sounds fine.

Almost all the other Joni Mitchell I listen to is from 76 w/ the L.A. Express and 79 w/ Metheny/Pastorious/Alias group, but some of this is nice to hear now and then. If I wasn’t more interested in jazz and rock music, I’d listen to this alot more. It’s classic Joni.

If you haven’t heard this (apparently parts of 2 sets) and like Joni Mitchell’s unique songwriting and performance style, you will enjoy hearing this. I don’t know how many generations my tape of this is, but there’s only a little bit of tape noise. I have not done any processing of this except to balance the levels out, DC offset where needed, and a couple of splices to smooth out abrupt endings. I don’t know how close to complete this is, but all the songs here are uninterrupted.

Joni played a run of shows at Club 47, the only date in etree is Jan 10th, that setlist order does not match here. It does sound like track 1 may not be the opening song, hard to tell since there’s no stage introduction in the recording.

Since June 2005 this collection has appeared seven times (now eight) at Dime. There were speed problems, dropouts and sector boundary errors along the way, as well as possibly different source tapes and/or tinkering with the sound.

This file set was originally seeded at Dime on Mon 12th Jan, 2009 by glasnostrd19, and doesn’t appear on the bot list after that.

It is not the speed-corrected version by Randall, seeded in 2007. According to one comment, this version has ‘more hiss and more bass though it would be going too far to describe it as “muffled” by comparison’. If somebody could reseed that version it would be nice to be able to compare.

This reseed has new txt, ffp and md5 files, and the SBEs were fixed – all with xACT.

This is the boot commonly known as “By The Banks of the River Charles”. It has four never-released Joni songs: “Gift of the Magi,” “Ballerina Valerie”, “The Way it Is” and “Come to the Sunshine”.

Reseeded at Dime: April 2012
