February 27 in EP Music History Trivia - prize today!

Postby KarenZ » Fri Feb 27, 2009 12:08 pm

Folks,

On this date in 1974, Joni Mitchell's Court and Spark was certified Gold.

I'll send an copy of Ellis Paul's Notes From the Road to the first person who can name an EP song that mentions Joni. (Way too easy!) :)

Great trivia prize, Karen. :D ----- For those new to the book, you'll never guess what Ellis is "trying" to learn to do in chapter one. :P

Great album, too...... 8) ---- I had just gotten into Joni and it was one of many I really enjoyed.

Isn't that getting a bit uncomfortable Karen... :D

Couldn't resist Karen, sorry :lol:
I guess my brain is turning to mush, slush, snow...you name it!!

Quickly thinking of the trivia question.. I can only think of one song.. hmm..are there many more?

I hesitate to answer and win a prize but my copy of this book got water spilled on it while it was in a backpack, (at a folk festival) I am tempted to replace it..

I'll give it another day..

Patti,

I'm thinking of only one song, although there may be others. (My brain is mush too!) Jela will know if there are more than one. :)

Well I can only think of one song so there you go Patti!

I have a nice story about the book - I bought if for Richard as a birthday present the first time we saw Ellis play live which was 2003 at the Newport Folk Festival - I got him to sign it and I remember telling Ellis that we'd come from the UK specially to see him at the Festival but I don't think he believed me! He probably would now though????

It was the time of the 'Ribbon of Highway' show and the following day he played with Slaid Cleaves and Jeff Plankenhorn - in fact it was probably the first time they sang 'She Was' to an audience.

Richard's actual birthday coincided with the Festival that year which was a nice coincidence and I've since discovered that he shares the day, but not the year (!) with Rachel :)

Fond memories.......

Jela

Ellis and Sharon were at the festival when it got wet, I was asking Sharon where they were when cover picture was taken (by her). They couldn't say exactly but Ellis generously offered to replace it then, but I declined. I had preorederd my book, so it is numbered and autographed, so even though it is "slightly damaged" it is still a keeper!!

I'm actually able to try and get caught up here on the board now that life has quieted down some. Watching parents/relatives age and deal with health issues is not fun!

Jela, I was in Newport in 2003 ... before we knew each other! That was such a great Festival!!!!!

Karen, I hope you are not too uncomfortable still sitting on the book. I have a copy, so I'm not going to answer either!!!

MonicaR,

I'm fine sitting on the book. I guess I'm gonna have to come up with more obscure prizes for you devotees! :) (But remember....you can always pass the prize along to someone else as a way to Spread the Word!) ;)
