Just chanced across this lovely 1966 live clip of a pre-American stardom Joni Mitchell (the guest appearances by David Geffen and Elliot Roberts are admittedly irksome, but Joni's really radiant so never mind).
By an odd coincidence (hah!) I also came across an interesting interview with Mitchell in the February issue of MOJO. Among other revelations, she lets it drop that she has not always been universally beloved by her contemporaries of the female persuasion.
She [Janis Joplin] was very competitive with me, very insecure," Mitchell tells interviewer Robert Hilburn. She was the queen of rock 'n' roll one year and then Rolling Stone made me the queen of rock 'n' roll and she hated me after that. I always thought the women of song don't get along, and I don't know why that is. I had a hard time with Laura Nyro also, and Joan Baez would have broken my left leg if she could, or at least that's the way it felt as a person coming out. I never felt that same sense of competition from men.
There's lots more, much of it equally revealing, but alas MOJO doesn't post their articles online so I can't link. If you can find a copy, the issue also comes with a bonus CD of past and present electronica bands; if you're a Gary Numan completist, it could be a hot one!!!!
