Toronto 1991 [no label, 1CD]

Swingin’ On A Star. CBC Toronto Studio 45, Toronto, Ontario, Canada; February 1991; broadcast March 1, 1991 [rebroadcast? March 30, 1991]. Excellent CBC-FM broadcast. Hosted by Murray McLauchlan.

Thanks to stevemtl for sharing the show at Dime.

stevemtl noted:

I’ve been a Joni Mitchell fan since I first heard her music on the CBC, well before the first album. This set has me very excited; well, flabbergasted by one highlight after another. The interviews alone would be sufficient. But Hejira, and Joni covers Bobby! No chance I’ll regain composure soon.

  2. Expectations for this set are lowered considerably when the first voice you hear singing Woodstock and The Circle Game are not Joni’s, but Murray’s. False advertising, this.

  10. This lady is a legend without a doubt ‘ but by 91 she was an old hag without a doubt. Some 70s Joni would be great . Skip this garbage.

    By Pat Grooms on May 2, 2020

  11. Hey U L E is right . Joni was a size queen who loved big scholongs. Doubt she cares now though at her age .

    By C Tony on May 2, 2020

  12. She dated Leonard Cohen ‘ Jackson Browne ‘ James Taylor ‘ Graham Nash ‘ Warren Beatty among many others . All legendary Big Cocs .

    By C Tony on May 2, 2020

  13. Weird item this. For completists only I would plead. This was actually broadcast? Twice? It is awful! Nobody wants to hear some second rate Canadian join in on Mitchell classics as Tony intimated this is really false advertising. Throwaway stuff and scarcely worth delving into the ego trip of the interviews when the versions of songs are this uniformly awful. The cover of Bobby’s ‘Baby Blue’ is a throw away cursory attempt at best that wouldn’t make most bootlegs. 6 songs? Naaah think I’ll I’ll leave it unpacked over at Dime.

    Thanks for digging it up tho’ Big O always welcome to to try this stuff wherever you find it!?

  14. Twernt me on the last one . Nuther fake . Two before that was me . Ones before that fakes too

  15. Hey hhh , Anti , derrick etc . I heard that niggers are catching this virus and spreading it to white folks on purpose. Most of those monkeys don’t wear masks in public. The savages.

    By Nelson on May 2, 2020

  16. Wal Mart is another nigger hang out . Most who work and shop there these days are niggers . They need to make everybody wear masks .

    By Nelson on May 2, 2020

  17. second rate Canadian ?

    pretty crummy choice of words.

    sluggo a proud Canadian.

  18. Nelson you think your cool

    By Matches on May 2, 2020

  19. fuck off Nelson

    By Derrick on May 2, 2020

  20. sluggo - sorry to offend (quite hard here!) I was being generous I thought. I have never heard of him so second rate seemed kind. He ain’t no Neil Young, Leonard Cohen or Joni!?

    By swappers on May 2, 2020

  21. In a small redneck NY town Walmart is mostly white and the knuckleheads AND staff aren’t wearing masks! I called corporate twice in 8 days to complain. The regional manager called me back to give me their policy that everyone over 3 yrs of age has to wear a mask. It’s not being followed. Gov. Cuomo says call law enforcement but they don’t want to come because they are customers as well!

    I can understand somebody saying they don’t care about ME but they don’t care if I’m giving it to them!!

    Dumbasses are everywhere!

  22. That’s America

    By Derrick on May 3, 2020

  23. I’ve seen the same thing. Most employees these days wear masks , but it’s about 50 50 with customers who go into places like grocery stores , Wal Mart , Home Depot etc . They act like they couldn’t care less who gets sick . Store management needs to crack down on these buffoons.

    By John on May 3, 2020

  24. Hey hhh , Anti , derrick etc . I am catching this virus and spreading it to normal people on purpose. I’m an asshole and don’t wear a mask in public. I’m a fool . Wal Mart is another place I hang out . Most who work and shop there these days are way fucking better than me . They wear masks but me - I’m a jackass fool and I put my mask over my asshole . Wear it later when I get home

  25. Hi Nelson! How are things going?

    By U L E on May 3, 2020

  26. Fuck you U L E. You been nothing but a stupid little bitch to me the whole time we been here at Big O. I never believed any of your bullshit about knowing how big these stars co¢ks are. You are just a dumb arrogant bitch who likes to blow off her mouth.

    By Nelson on May 3, 2020

  27. Rumor has it that Nelson has a l’ll one.

  30. you need a magnifying glass to see it.

    By Nelson on May 3, 2020

  31. Back at walmart tonight I snapped photos of employees and customers not wearing masks and after the Asst Mgr said ‘the heck with your health’ I told him if he didn’t call the cops I would for not enforcing the mask policy!

    Cops show, say they can’t really do anything but arrest me for trespassing if I don’t leave the store!! Tomorrow I call the Govenor, who as it turns out, is a 5th cousin I never knew about until yesterday!

    It would be great to have him report that one of the
    countries biggest retailers isn’t protecting their own employees lives, let alone the publics.

    By Mahatma Coate McKeyes on May 4, 2020

  32. Is the DJ singing Woodstock? Who-the-fuck is listening to the Show to hear him? What a fucking egotistical ass.

    By leesa on May 5, 2020

  33. a shout out to Swappers and Tony Pizza, for keeping it about the music. not brain size

    By Richard Jay on May 5, 2020

  34. Just kidding. They were all mine.

    By U L E on May 7, 2020

  35. joni!!! thanks, big OH!

    By I-) on May 12, 2020

  36. Thanks, Big O. I didn’t care for the Murray McLauchlan version of Woodstock, but all the other songs are charming and musical. I don’t know anybody who would say this is their favorite period of Joni, but she’s still unique, and the songs are thoughtful and touching.

    By teamster on May 22, 2020

  37. I am a co¢ksucker. A real serious co¢ksucker. I will suck co¢k all day and all night. I love co¢k. Love serious co¢k.
