  • Description

    Joni Mitchell, live from The Fez Nightclub, New York, NY 6th November 1986.

    Joni Mitchell, joined by jazz drummer Brian Blade of Shreveport, LA, surprised audiences with a performance at New York's Greenwich Village nightclub, The Fez.

    This concert is famous for an altercation between Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders and Carly Simon. Chrissie was yelling out to Joni so much that Carly asked her to be quiet and Chrissie came over to Carly's booth and said "That's a real singer up there" as she put her hands around Carly's neck. Chrissie then went back to her seat and Carly left the club in a huff.

    This set from November 6th 1986, broadcast on WNEW-FM radio, included four new songs as well as favourites from throughout her career. She played her beautiful new green Parker Fly guitar that is hooked to a computer that responds to a foot pedal and can instantly go into any tuning that she's pre-set. For Joni, this is a welcome addition as she has more than 50 different tunings and typically would change between them 5 or more times during a set.
