Today (Nov. 7) in EP Music History Trivia

Jonie Mitchell was born on Nov. 7, 1943 in Fort Macleod, Alberta, Canada which means she turns 63 years young today. I should look so good when I'm 63. :)

There's lots of terrific photos of Joni on her web site but I thought I'd post the one above since it was taken in 1985 - about the time our Ellis Paul found Joni's music.

A brand new Joni Mitchell web site was launched yesterday. I found her biography fascinating. If nothing else read the section of her bio titled 1985-89 Experimental 80's.

The first person to reply to this with a name of an Ellis Paul song mentioning Joni Mitchell will win an Ellis Paul Essentials poster.

It is a kind of talent in itself, to be an audience, whether you are the spectator in the gallery or you are listening to the voice of the world's greatest soprano. Not everyone can be the artist. There have to be those who witness the art, who love and appreciate what they have been privileged to see." -- Ann Patchett in Bel Canto.

What a great photo of Joni...those were her dripping cool years for me.

I feel sure Joni is mentioned in more than one of Ellis' song.

Hmmn.......one is obvious......I'm trying for obscure.

I'll think on it a bit.............Good Luck Everybody!!!

Hi Everyone! the only one I can think of is "Juekbox on my Grave"

You can hear Hank Williams
some George Jones
some Beatles songs
some Dylan
some Rolling Stones
Joni Mitchell and Marvin Gaye
and Johnny Cash risen
from the ashes on my grave, my grave
That's Johnny Cash there
singing "Ring of Fire" upon my grave

Is there another?? Seems like "Paddy" is right and she is mentioned in more than one song, but I can't think of it!
