BOTH SIDES NOW, has an interesting story; it was written by JONI MITCHELL in 1967, and Judy Collins heard her sing the song at that time and covered it on her album WILDFLOWERS, and scored a Top 10 Hit when she released it as a single in October of 1968 and won the Grammy for Best Folk Performance in 1969 . Joni then released an album at that time with the title, BOTH SIDES NOW, with the song done in a lush, orchestral version.
We have a lovely video of Ms. Mitchell performing it Live in 1970. If you listen carefully you can hear her Canadian accent on certain words. I know we also have Judy Collins fans, so we'll try to get something by her up sometime soon. @therealdonrocks
