Joni Mitchell released Blue today in 1971. The cover was a manipulation of a photo shot in 1968 at The Troubadour (9081 Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood) by Tim Considine at a then unheard of ASA (ISO) of 6000, using experimental film.

Joni Mitchell wrote much of Blue (1971) at Formentera where Bob Dylan once lived in the Cap de Barbaria Lighthouse. The island was conquered by both the Norwegians and Catalans and was vacated in fear of pirates from 1403 to early 18th C. Hippies loved coming here. Its beaches were filled with nude sun bathers.

"It was the third of June, another sleepy, dusty delta day," Billie Joe McAllister jumped off the Tallahatchee Bridge (Money, MS) seen in 1967 when Bobbie Gentry released Ode to Billie Joe. The bridge itself collapsed in 1972. It's here Billie Joe and a woman threw something off the bridge and Billie Joe later committed suicide here. A beautifully crafted song with implied lyrics. Gentry was among first women in country music to write and produce her own music. This song won 3 Grammy Awards

June 10, 1971, saw the infamous Jethro Tull show at Red Rocks that caused a 5-year ban on rock shows here. They continued to play unable to see their instruments after police choppers dropped tear gas. 1000 fans had showed up without tickets but police said it was ok to watch from the hill. However, fans started to cross the barrier resulting in a riot (with rocks hurled).
