This is cover of a Joni Mitchell composition from 1966 before she was a megastar. I've played it in solo sets for over forty years. It is haunting and evocative. a song from the time when Joni first proved her gifts as a lyricist, a painter and a powerful poet songstress. This is a privilege to perform.
From the vaults when we recorded on quarter inch eight tracks with one good mic a lot of chutzpah, Tired of Chasing Rainbows. This was our first song to get airplay and started our run of making indie records. Good times. Sad songs.
Sweet, gentle, sad, Wonderful. Real music. Great guitar work. Not showy or flashy, like clouds that drift across the sky without blocking the sun. And Daryl Hannah? She is a seyfert: a very rare kind of galaxy that at its center, instead of a dark void, is a glowing heart.
