Joni Mitchell Granted Us 5 Minutes To Ask About Her Early Influences

Bethel, NY
August 19, 1989

"This short but blunt and powerful interview with the great folk, pop, country, rock, classical, jazz singer and songwriter Joni Mitchell was made in 1989. My team and I were recording interviews with mostly unknown "ordinary" people about their memories and experiences during the 1960s. The television series I was making was called Making Sense of the 60s.

At the time, Joni Mitchell had stopped performing but had attended a Woodstock reunion event. She granted my team five minutes for an interview. Eventually at the time, she wasn't speaking publicly about her activities, personal or professional. This interview is the result." -David Hoffman
