Better known as my homegirl Joni Mitchell.
Two videos can't do justice to a multifaceted career spanning almost 5 decades...So sue me.
Drop by her website and congratulate her on her latest Juno award, won't you?

Dedicated to all my female readers...
Although the initial success of the Sweeneys was with a little tune called Roxy Roller (rendered stalwartly here by the Men Without Shame), and one that precipitated many a roller rink romance, singer Nick Gilder and lead guitarist James McCulloch cracked the U.S. big time with the above song, and since those heady days Nick has gone on to other career high spots (such as co-writing with Holly Knight the Number One single The Warrior for Scandal with Patty Smyth), totalling ten Top 20 hits in the US.
Trivia: A very young Bryan Adams (avec purple hair) was one of Nick's replacements in the band during the late '70's.
Ah, the days of dandelion wine and bubblegum on the knees...
