In My Life:
I grew up listening to CSN&Y's version and always preferred it but lately I find myself enjoying Joni's version more. It's so lovely and ethereal sounding. I'm glad we have both though. Joni's captures the spiritual side of Woodstock and CSN&Y's conveys the enormous energy of the event.

Joni Mitchell did not perform at Woodstock as her manager felt it would be better for her to appear on The Dick Cavett Show.  She wrote the song in New York City just after the festival and performed it for the first time at the Big Sur Folk Festival one month later...
