"I Was a Prophet" about Joni Mitchell

YEAR: 1969
LOCATION: Winnipeg, MB

Richard was at the University of Winnipeg's Fort Garry campus from 1966 to 1969. There was a coffeehouse called 'the Fourth Dimension' at the corner of Pembina Highway and University Crescent. Headlining was "Chuck and Joni Mitchell from Detroit." They performed as a duo, but Joni came out at the end and said that she had just written a new song called "The Circle Game." Richard remembers telling his friends to forget Chuck, because it was all going to be about Joni from now on. "I was a prophet!" Thanks for sharing, Richard.
