Joni Mitchell: guitar, piano, (mandolin on Carey?) vocal

From the original uploader:
the information above the lineage is what i got w/ the vine disk (or maybe i dug it up somewhere online, i really don’t remember). there are some fade ins and outs. this has a different setlist from the entry listed at db.etree.org called “BBC 2 – Sounds for Saturday, London, England” under the same date 26 May 1972. anyway, this is a great recording of a super performance by Joni Mitchell. had to share it! enjoy!

Tracks 1-12 : BBC transcription disc
Tracks 13-18 : Aircheck tape

Goody adds:
Note that ~1’51” of Joni’s intro to “Carey” in Track 07 was carefully edited out for the broadcast, for some reason.
The complete intro is included in what’s called the Aircheck tape’s Track 17. The missing bit begins at ~01’39” and ends at ~3’30”.
Track 18 of the Aircheck tape is the same performance of “Carey” found in Track 07, but not the same track.

Many thanks to all involved in creating, archiving and releasing the source of this incredible archive!

**Notes from Collectors Music Reviews**

The new release At The Beeb Volume I by the label Culombia (sic) is a compilation of 4 different BBC radio broadcasts of Pink Floyd performances from December 1967 to May 1969. The first, second, & fourth are Top Gear shows, while the third one is a Nite Ride show. They comprise the 1st disc of a double-disc factory-pressed silver original real 2-CD set  Volume II, the 2nd disc of the set, is of the legendary BBC session of September 30th, 1971, which I decided not to buy since I already have 5 different versions of it and can’t imagine the best ones possibly getting any noticeably superior.

Anyway, Volume I was selected because, although the outstanding Celestial Voices that was released by Rover Records several months ago included a major upgrade in sound quality for the first & third BBC shows, a big upgrade in sound quality for the second & fourth BBC shows can now be found on Volume I  in addition to such an upgrade for the first & third BBC shows that were included on Celestial Voices.

Unfortunately my ears aren’t good enough to be able to discern any noticeable difference(s) in quality between the same shows found on both Celestial Voices & Volume I, but all 4 shows on Volume I are a certain, long-awaited major upgrade in quality for the same 4 shows that can be found on the old Great Dane Records release The Complete Top Gear Sessions 1967-1969 (GDR CD 9206). Sadly, however, the old GDR title includes a 5th BBC show, from the autumn of 1967, for which a significant quality upgrade is
apparently not available  at least not yet.

The following is printed in exact word-for-word verbatim near the top of the rear cover of Volume I -These soundboard recordings are taken from the original masters, except for tracks 13 to 16 which were copied from an excellent broadcast recordings.

Introductory &/or concluding comments, mostly by John Peel, can be heard at the ends of each track. Packaged in a regular 1-CD jewel case, but with the rear insert being single-sided only in terms of artwork, with still very nice artwork overall that’s done similarly to that of Floyd’s 2nd officially released album, A Saucerful of Secrets, At The Beeb Volume I is a terrific find that is very highly recommended.

Reveiw here; http://www.collectorsmusicreviews.com/pink-floyd/pink-floyd-at-the-beeb-volume-i-culombia-sic-pfatb6769/

A brilliant little compilation, encompassing some of the overlooked radio work the Floyd did early in their careers,in brilliant quality. Nice and laid back, almost to the point of what is regarded ‘Stereotypical Floyd’, in astounding quality. As stated, the announcements are by the LEGENADRY John Peel, with some interesting little anecdotes from him
included; it’s almost like you’ve tuned into the shows the day they were broadcast – possibly the greatest nostalgia trip.
I would rate this as ‘ESSENTIAL’.

Track #13 and #14 are very intense – gives me goosebumps all the way through 🙂
Especially “River”, what a haunting song !

And yes, of course tracks #15-#17 have nothing to do with the BBc.
These are from the NPR World CafÈ Radio Sessions – just see them as bonus tracks…
