Watching Joni Mitchell doc from 2001 on Netflix, and it's December, so we're "comin' on Christmas," via her classic "The River." Below that: Incredible video from 1965, well before she left Canada--and sharing stage with equally undiscovered Harry Chapin and his brothers. Below that, her great early song about a visit to Leonard Cohen's boyhood home in Montreal. And finally her song about my man, Beethoven.
