Joni Mitchell turned 70 the other day! Here she is at her best!
It was Valentine’s Day, 1974 and it was a matinee performance of Bob Dylan & The Band at the Los Angeles Forum. I believe that much of the show was recorded for the album Before The Flood. It was a great show. That same night I saw Phil Ochs and Mimi Farina perform in Pasadena. I don’t have the ticket stub for that one though.
Here is a nice performance of Paul McCartney’s new song. Have you noticed that I play a Paul McCartney song every single week on Shapiro at Large? Perhaps that is why Shapiro At Large is America’s favorite radio program!
(The closing theme of Shapiro At Large each week is Zoo Gang, composed and performed by Paul McCartney)
I had fun putting together this week’s show. All covers. Well technically one song was not a true cover, because it predated the hit version by some time. Can you find that song? I hope you enjoy the show! It is, as always, archived here for a week.
