Songs Joni Mitchell and Neil Young wrote about each other

Whether or not the pair had a romantic interaction or didn’t, the situation is not really of our concern because their shared time together prompted two sweet songs instead.

On September 14, 1974,  Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young performed at Wembley Stadium in London. One of the latter stops on the legendary tour, the three hour show consisted of three sets, and featured songs from their 1970 album, as well as solo material from each band member. Joni Mitchell and baby Chris Stills also made guest appearances. 


August 11, 1976 ~ Shakey records an album’s worth of songs in a single evening at Indigo Ranch Recording Studio in Malibu, California. Featuring “Pocahontas” and “Powderfinger,” the album is buried until September 8, 2017, when it’s released under the title of Hitchhiker.

Sentimental Hygiene 

August 29, 1987 ~ Zevon’s back after a 5-year hiatus and enlists some notables in the effort. Peter Buck, Bill Berry and Mike Mills, back up Zevon on this album and fellow R.E.M. alum Michael Stipe appears on the album providing vocals and harmony on the song “Bad Karma”. Dylan and Neil Young are there, too; Orpheus playing harmonica on “The Factory” and Shakey does lead guitar on the title track.

Old Ways

Shakey releases his “country” album on August 12, 1985. It took a while until after he settled a beef with Geffen Records. Neil did the album while under the Geffen label but they didn’t want “country” Neil .. they wanted “rock ‘n roll” Neil. Shakey won in court, wrote a few more tunes to finish out the album and got some friends to help with the recording: Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Bela Fleck, Marty Stuart and more.
