5.0 out of 5 stars Great live vintage Joni, March 9, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I had no idea what this DVD was but I took a chance and ordered it anyhow. Turns out it is a 1970 concert Joni taped in England for the BBC. It captures Joni during that golden time right between LADIES OF THE CANYON and BLUE. My favorite moment was during "My Old Man" -- which was so new Joni hadn't even written all the verses for it yet!

Here is the set list:
Chelsea Morning
Cactus Tree
My Old Man
For Free
California
Big Yellow Taxi
Both Sides Now

It is always interesting to watch vintage Joni live clips -- she always changed up her melodies and phrasing which makes it interesting.

This is a must watch for lovers of Joni!

This is the BBC "IN CONCERT" series. Unfortunately what they released to home DVD is JUST the 30 minutes aired. The missing SONGS are unfortunately are "WOODSTOCK" (the besdt version she ever did live on video), which was taped the same day in 1970, i nthe same outfit and used as a test footage. It should have been included as an extra. IS IT? I only want it if she performs WOODSTOCK. The Tom Jones Show--which has released a number of DISCS on home DVD HAS the performance of JONI's in 1970 and she played two songs including WOODSTOCK. Both have not found their way to home dvd. it's a shame!

Did that not look like Peter Green in the audience or what....? They stopped and trained the camera on him for about ten seconds during one ovation. That's about the way he looked then and the garb he wore at the time and all. I was just wondering if anyone else noticed this...
