Chinese Cafe/Unchained Melody Print-ready version

July 2, 1983
Original article: PDF

How to grow old intelligently: 'Chinese Cafe' is a brilliant commentary on the passing of time. A middle-aged woman sees her kids growing up and remembers her own wild youth down the Chinese Cafe, playing 'Unchained Melody' -itself one of the most nostalgic sounds you could imagine. Often Joni Mitchell seems as irrelevant as Fine Art, but this record sets her genius in the real world and the effect is devastating.
