This superb Joni Mitchell performance was recorded at the legendary Newport Folk Festival in Rhode Island on the evening of July 19th, 1969, within a week of the first moon landing and a month prior to Woodstock. Broadcast by PBS as The Sounds of Summer that August, it captures Mitchell on the cusp of becoming one of the biggest stars in the emerging singer-songwriter movement. Spanning such early classics as Chelsea Morning and Both Sides, Now, as well as lesser-known album tracks and the rare Cactus Tree, it culminates with Dino Valenti's anthemic Get Together, and is essential listening for Mitchell's legion of fans. 180-gram vinyl; includes insert with background notes and rare images.
