We hit a dozen episodes with our second two-parter, as Aussie music legend Mark Holden steps into the podbooth to join host Jeremy Dylan for an expansive lovefest on Joni Mitchell’s heartbreakingly beautiful 1971 masterpiece Blue.
Along the way, they talk about Joni’s instrumental prowess, writing in open tunings, BB King’s stamina, the way Blue has influenced succeeding generations of musicians and bumping into Joni at a Hall and Oates gig.
Come back next week to hear part 2 as Mark and Jeremy break down classic songs River, My Old Man, California, Little Green and A Case of You.
