Judy Collins Blue Eyes

11/3/16 – Judy Collins – Who Knows Where The Time Goes – 1967 / Both Sides Now – 1967

Sandy Denny’s most famous song, Who Know’s Where The Time Goes was written and recorded in her pre-Fairport Convention days when she was a member of The Strawbs.

Joni Mitchell Interview – 2013

Joni Mitchell, singer, writer, painter, was interviewed by Jian Ghomeshi for CBC earlier this year. The interview was 1hr.45min and I found myself watching the whole thing uninterrupted late at night. There will never be enough time to ask her every question you want to because her body of work is so vast, consequently it seems […]
