Anyone else rediscovering music you have loved for years?

So I'm on my walk through the 'hood with my iPod listening to my faves, and I think, hey what about some Joni Mitchell. OMG. I've always loved the voice, the sublime and awesome piano, the drop dead in your tracks lyrics. Turned on Down to You. I had forgotten the orchestral arrangement. What a masterpiece. I replayed it 3 times. Then A Case of You. Then For Free. The early 70's had some kick ass music and Joni was a big part if it.

1. You might want to check out Nicolette Larson if you like Joni

The 70's had the best vocalists and I still love to listen to them.
Thanks for the reminder!

2. I love all those songs. And "Coyote" and "California"

I lived in southern California in the 70s. Those songs are part of the soundtrack of that stage of my life

4. I sure am. I watch tons of classic concerts on YouTube, all from the comfort of my home.

I used to travel hundreds of miles to check out live music shows, and never got a chance to see some of my favorite artists.

Now I can turn on my big screen TV, crank up my sound system, and choose an artist.

Or, I can look up old songs I haven't heard in years, and hear them with new ears. I am much more appreciative these days of the craftsmanship that goes into some of these older recordings, the songwriting, the production, the musicianship.
