Subject: RE: Interesting Joni Mitchell article
I agree, Joni's verson of Woodstock is the ultimate version of that song.

To see that Dylan writes beautiful melodies, it is only necessary to hear a host of other fine singers singing them (assuming you can't hear the melody in Bob's voice...I can...and the people who cover him obviously can). I agree that Joni's tunings and arrangements are more sophisiticated than his. Al Stewart has also written some wonderfully sophisticated material of a very unique sort...both musically and lyrically.
