comments:
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.

THE JF BACKSTORY

JEMS loves a vintage taper series and we’re pleased to offer another one, this time from the archive of our friend JF, who taped in and around Southern California in the ’70s and Boston in the ’80s. He frequented smaller venues, like the Troubadour and the Roxy, leaving arenas to others and leaning more towards the folksier, jazzier and eclectic sides of rock.

Most of his ’70s tapes were made on what I would describe as the kind of large, rectangular, portable, C-cel powered cassette recorder that my family and surely many others had in the ’70s, either a Panasonic or a Sony. While I used ours to record myself, my friends and my sister around the house, the teenage JF figured: Why not try taking it into concerts?

I only learned what recorder JF used after I had heard some of his tapes and I have to say I was mildly shocked. Given the gear, his tapes are remarkably clear for the era. And make no mistake, this was an early era for audience recording, part of the first wave spurred on by of the vinyl bootleg revolution.

For further details and backstory on JF, his tapes and the extraordinary lost Van performances from 1975 that started the series, please refer to the notes in Vol. Three:

http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=524853

JONI IN ANAHEIM

The JF Archive series resumes with what we believe to be a previously uncirculated Joni Mitchell performance on her well regarded 1974 tour backed by Tom Scott and the L.A. Express. The tour was notable as her first to explore more of a jazz direction compared to her folk-rock beginnings.

You can find the poster for the show, the ticket, photos and a nice contemporary review here:
http://jonimitchell.com/chronology/detail.cfm?id=1365

Itís a lively set featuring a very talkative Joni. The sound quality isn’t up to the level of the best audience tapes of the tour (among them JEMS’ Seattle 3/13/74 master found here http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=318981), but in all, this a lovely performance and another one of those ìyou are thereî recordings, despite the lo-fi gear. Samples provided.

JF did an excellent job capturing the complete performance with no noticeable cuts in the music, Joni’s between song dialogue and stories come through loud and clear.

Though originally recorded on cassette, JF’s Joni recording was transferred from reel-to-reel. That’s because JF, due to tight budgets at the time (he was barely out of high school), routinely transferred his master tapes to reels in order to save tape/money. Because he recorded his masters in mono, he would dub the finished recording onto a single track of a reel, allowing him to fit four or more shows on one 7″ tape and reuse the cassette for the next show. That wasn’t true in all instances, but it is for most. And yes, in hindsight, he is still kicking himself about it. And yet, based on the tapes we’ve transferred so far, JF did a fine job dubbing off his masters, and the Joni reel doesn’t sound any worse for wear despite the one-generation loss.

Once again, we must express our gratitude to JF, who reached out on DIME (you could be next!) and offered us his archive, which had been sitting in boxes, 6000 miles away from where he lives today, for 20+ years. Like so many early tapers, he had great stories to tell and the memories flooded back as we sorted through tapes. We are pleased to be able to bring his work to all of you. Please let him know through your comments that you are, too.

Lastly, as always, special thanks to mjk5510, who continues his critical duty as JEMS’ post-production and quality-control supervisor. His contributions are essential in getting the music to you.

From the original uploader:

Joni Mitchell Mega-rare restored vinyl set “Spring Songs” 1974-03-24 Cameron Stadium, Duke University, Durham, North Carolina (mp3 sample) great performance!

Plea and beg time: If you have the master tape of this show, or one not from this record album, please seed it!

For this torrent, I have decided to take quite a different tack: I have tweaked and fiddled with this music for many hours to bring this amazing performance somewhat to life. There’s night and day difference between what you will hear in this torrent and on the original vinyl. The fact that I can finally hear all the instruments and the thing’s back in tune and in proper tempo on a show of this quality is all I need. I absolutely love it.

You may not think that’s good enough. You may think it not worth your time, or that it “still sucks”, or why am I posting this when there’s so much better sounding material out there.

I have news for you… Joni is stunning, mind melting, riding the clouds on this one. She is so good that she makes it look easy.

It may not be for you, nor your sister, nor your girlfriend who you’ve been trying to do “what with??!!” if you can’t look past the imperfections:

Don’t download it!

The setlist of this show is another matter entirely. The album cover, the Hot Wacks discography, and the sides of the album are all in disagreement. The tracks on each side seem to be in sequence, but I am not sure if the sides themselves are in proper order. This is what I came up with, both for track listings and for sequence:

You Turn Me On, I’m A Radio
Free Man In Paris
Same Situation
Just Like This Train
Rainy Night House (awesome, awesome!)
Woodstock
Big Yellow Taxi
Peoples Parties
All I Want
A Case Of You
For The Roses
Cold Blue Steel And Sweet Fire

Please provide corrections!

Some technical notes: Very little noise reduction or pop and click removal was applied to this recording, as it was difficult to seperate the noise from the music. The swishing you hear in some tracks is sound cancellation caused by the stereo master tape being pressed in combined (L + R) mono. EQ was performed and undone over and over again to get the recording as clear as possible. Each side was individually pitch-corrected to CD masters of the official releases.

This recording BEGS for a tape copy that’s in stereo!

Enjoy!

hanwaker’s original description:

this is an outstanding audience recording !
i received a cassette copy from east coast trader henry G. in the very early 80s.. i wished i could trace this one back to its master… the copy henry sent is at least 3 gen up from the master and has gathered the usual amount of hiss.

.and add:— that dolby c and b( these days EQ business does its trick) —did its share in disguising the
( real-reel) above average recording once it hit the cassette decks in analog times,,
this said.. you will still find this to be one of the best 76 joni recordings..
even the hecklers are less audible than joni herself!
the claim to fame is this…
THIS HAS THE FAMOUS HECKLER ATTAC..during — for free— !

****and add that at times i feel this to be a tiny bit too fast****

hopefully one of the fellow dimers recoginzes his master and can help with an upgrade
