Joni Mitchell – Handwritten Set List From 1995 Gene Autry Theatre Show
A setlist handwritten by Joni Mitchell, for her 1995 performance at the Gene Autry Museum in Los Angeles. This is the only Joni Mitchell setlist we’ve ever seen for sale, and it was obtained this from longtime Joni associate Joel Bernstein, who details its history in his accompanying letter of authenticity-
“This letter is to authenticate Joni Mitchell’s handwritten setlist for her performance at the Wells Fargo Theatre at the Gene Autry Museum in Los Angeles, on January 26, 1995. This was a date to promote her Turbulent Indigo album, and was broadcast live on the radio. I was her guitar technician at the time and Joni gave me this list to prepare her guitars for the show (at the left are her indications of which guitar she wanted for a particular song.)
I first photographed Joni Mitchell at a 1966 Philadelphia club show; by 1968 we had become friends and I began touring with her as her photographer. For the next 15 years, I toured with Joni, shooting live shows and photographing her for the covers of her albums For The Roses, Hejira, Shadows and Light and Songs of a Prarie Girl. At her request, I also transcribed the tunings to all of her songs so that she could have a permanent record of them; and during her 1979 tour and her 1994-1995 touring to support Turbulent Indigo, I worked as both her guitar technician and production manager. Over the years I became well-versed in the many aspects of her writing, recording, and performing, and in 2003 I was co-producer of the Emmy Award-winning PBS documentary Joni Mitchell: Woman of Heart and Mind. Sincerely, Joel Bernstein”
Also included is an 8″ x 10″ color photograph of Mitchell, suitable for framing with the setlist. A museum-quality collectible, with Joel Bernstein’s letter of authenticity, and Recordmecca’s written lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
