CultureMUSIC: “Big Yellow Taxi (Live)” - Joni Mitchell c. 1970 @ Isle Of Wright Festival
Wrapping up the #Saturday70s series today with a few videos. A live festival clip from the beginning of Joni’s career.
When it comes to late 20th century pop/folk artists, you can’t put a price on Joni Mitchell’s influence. She was an absolute original. Not just in vocal style but also in her painfully personal lyrical writing. Her influence can be felt from Kate Bush to Erykah Badu. Prince, who is a huge fan, once said that Mitchell, “taught me a lot about sound and color”. She is truly one of the great female artists of the 20th century.
