Editorial Reviews

On October 16th 1970, Joni Mitchell, James Taylor and Phil Ochs played for free to a packed house, delivering brilliant performances and making history. It's all captured on a two-disc CD complete with a 48-page booklet of never-before-seen, candid black and white photos of the concert, and photos of the Amchitka voyage and modern-day Greenpeace. Amchitka, the 1970 concert that launched Greenpeace offers you the live vibe and nuance of the concert that changed the course of social activism for peace and the environment. Funds raised that night sent a boat renamed the Greenpeace to Amchitka Island in the Aleutians on the southern tip of Alaska to protest a series of underground nuclear bomb tests by the U.S. government. Greenpeace was born and the test series was canceled as a direct result of Greenpeace bearing witness and alerting the world.

An excellent concert. Phil, Joni, and James all sound great, seem motivated, and are obviously happy with the Greenpeace cause. All three artists seem especialy relaxed in this venue, perhaps because of the lack of pressure at a "free" concert. A shame that it now seems difficult to find, as evidenced as a single used copy costing more than $150. If you come across a copy of this gem, snap it up without waiting.

This was a concert that took place on 16th October 1970 at the Pacific Coliseum, Vancouver, Canada. A really great inspiring opening speech by Irving Stowe. Opens with Phil Ochs and his folk songs with just voice & acoustic guitar & so it is mainly down to strong words. Phil's version of 'Changes' is not so different to Crispian St Peter's & is a highlight of the set & really valid for this gig "Scenes of my young years were warm in my mind, Visions of shadows that shine. Til one day I returned and found they were the Victims of the vines of changes". His last song 'No More Songs' is also brilliant. His guitar picking sometimes is a bit shaky but with his voice & words there is something enigmatic about this (6 years later he sadly took his own life). Next up is James Taylor with his distinctive voice & guitar. Taylor's songs are much more well known with highlights being 'Something In The Way She Moves', 'Fire & Rain' and particularly the brilliant 'Carolina In My Mind' (always loved the version by Marmalade) are classics. Then comes Joni Mitchell alternating between guitar & piano provides soothing type music. Joni seems a nice innocent lady & is the star here. When the piano chords of 'Woodstock' slowly starts up it is very moving. James Taylor joins her on 'Tambourine Man' & it's an historic moment. 2nd from final track 'A Case Of You' is simply beautiful, brilliant & probably the highlight "I am a lonely painter I live in a box of paints I'm frightened by the devil & I'm drawn to the ones that aren't". Other highlights from Joni are 'Big Yellow Taxi', 'Cactus Tree', 'For Free'. Perhaps should lose a mark for its recording quality but historically both musically & politically this concert is inspired & essential listening.

I lighted on this while reading up on Phil Ochs as I played and revelled in Pleasures of The Harbour. See the wikipediaa rticle about him for more info on this concert. What an amazing time-piece. 1970. Live Joni Mitchell road testing songs from Blue pre its release. Live James Taylor from the Fire and Rain Sweet Baby James days and Phil Ochs on form as usual. An inspirational booklet too. As another reviewer said, you can buy this new from Greenpeace (Maplecore) in Canada at very little cost. They sent my copy to the Antipodes and it arrived within 10 days. Pristine!

Highly recommend.
