Joni Mitchell and James Taylor’s performance for John Peel

The below bootleg even has Joni another song about a rock leading man, this time it follows ‘For Free’ and it’s ‘The Circle Game’ and the moody attitude of Neil Young. “There was a friend of mine who had just left a rock and roll band to become a folk singer” she goes on that Young had felt over the hill after the age of 21. It all adds up to a quite wonderful afternoon listen.

“I’d rather feel bad than not feel anything at all …”

July 16, 1982 ~ Zevon releases “The Envoy.”

The album was poorly received — in sales and by Warren’s record label. In fact, they dropped him shortly after its release sending him into a month’s-long tailspin. The whole episode forced him to get sober and straight and he stayed that way for the rest of his life.

I’m not sure why the album did poorly ‘cuz it’s classic Zevon. I can’t do without “Ain’t That Pretty At All” and “Never Too Late for Love” can still choke me up.

“It’s really hard right now not knowing when we’ll be able to do that again. You know, we’re always bitching about the planes, the hotels. But, in reality, I just love performing for the fans who’ve been seeing us for 40-years. That’s what I miss most. Seeing our fans.”
