one of Joni Mithell’s all star bands drops in to Western Mass. for a delightful Tuesday evening show. this recording has some problems and a couple of interruptions, missing a little bit but it’s mostly here and all from my buddy’s master tapes. this tape all comes out to just under 102 minutes, it’s pretty listenable quality and a very nice concert. I have a couple more of of these shows in audience recordings but this is the only one with known lineage. it’s not a real
clear “high-fi” recording, but close enough up so it’s a you’re pretty much there production. I’m far from the biggest fan of Joni Mitchell music, but maybe my favorite of hers is this band, which toured just this one year, and her tour with the LA Express of soon before this one. this has to be the best band Joni’s ever toured with (not the only good one) and I’m happy to share this show with dime for maybe the 1st time, almost certainly the 1st time from this recording.
if anyone has a better quality/more complete recording of this show and/or other later 70’s Joni shows. I’m not very familiar with alot of her songs, she does several good ones in here. my favorites are the first and last
tracks in this recording. I think there may be another track or two after Woodstock that wasn’t recorded (maybe before), probably no more than 10 min. or so missing in this recording from the concert. I’ve always liked
Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young’s versions of Woodstock, Joni’s are very different but I like hers too (including this one).

do not sell this recording.
Trade freely and losslessly.
there’s no baloney in this Joni.

From the original uploader:
This was the rehearsal show for the Autumn 1979 European leg of Lou Reedís ìThe Bellsî Tour, and even more significantly, this was a historic show for fans of Suzanne Vega.
Suzanne has repeatedly regaled audiences and interviewers alike with tales of a date who took her to her first rock concert, a 1979 Lou Reed perfomance.

Though she claims she was appalled by his on-stage behavior — swearing and flicking lit cigarettes into the audience — the show still impressed her: “Suddenly it hit me that I could write about things I had experienced without softening up the edges or apologizing for it or putting it in a nice package necessarily,” recalled Vega in the Los Angeles Times.

And this was the very show that gave Suzanne that revelation, made her a fan of Mr. Reed, and eventually influenced her composition of her most notable hit, “Luka” — two decades later, Suzanne admitted she “was listening to Lou Reed’s Berlin album on the day that I wrote ëLukaí, probably to sharpen and focus myself.”
