Joni Mitchell - Live At Carnegie Hall 1969

RHINO

  • £49.99


This deluxe triple-LP set features Joni Mitchell’s complete Carnegie Hall debut, recorded on 1st February 1969. 

Almost a year after she released her debut album, Song to a Seagull, and a few months before her breakthrough second album, Clouds, the twenty-five-year-old singer-songwriter was standing on stage at Carnegie Hall in New York City playing the first major concert of her young career for a sold-out crowd that included Bob Dylan. Graham Nash, who was Mitchell's partner at the time, was there too, along with her parents visiting from Canada. Her performance that night earned glowing reviews, including this one from Billboard's Fred Kirby: 

"Joni Mitchell charmed a packed Carnegie Hall audience on Saturday... Miss Mitchell doesn't merely sing a song, the fine folk artist effectively interprets her material. And what a lineup of material! Beginning with 'Chelsea Morning" and ending with a medley of 'The Circle Game' and the new 'Little Green,' the outstanding material flowed." 

Fatefully, her label Reprise Records recorded the entire concert with plans to release it. More than 50 years later, the show will finally make its long-awaited debut.
