Joni Mitchell's debut album is out on Reprise. Some of us have been waiting a long time for it and it's been worth the wait. A delightful LP. The cover art is a Joni Mitchell original as are the songs within...Joni sang a few of her songs at the press opening of Generation the other night as did Buddy Guy, Jimi Hendrix, B.B. King, Big Brother, the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, and others...the opening was a bit crowded mainly because too many people invited their friends, relatives, neighbors etc. This resulted in a lot of invited guests not getting in the door. Publicist Mike Goldstein who threw the bash, had this to say (in part): "At 11pm the place was like Cheetah when it first opened; at 11:15 I went next door to a $1.19 steak house because it was the only place I could find a seat; at 11:30 the fire marshall said, 'Close the doors'; at 11:45 I went to a bar, because the fire marshall wouldn't even let me back in. What can I say...but come to our second opening."
