Reissue on Phonygraf:

TAKRL says:

“The second of the Phonograph-to-Kornyfone reclamations. This time we found two previously withheld outtakes to add on. The first Joni underground in its original form. HW’s information about this projects origins are entirely fictitious.”

Possibly a copy of this bootleg on Midnite Records:

Review from allmusic.com:

“Early Joni Mitchell bootlegs are pretty thin on the ground; from the sounds of things, this one was recorded live around 1970. It’s not remarkably different from her studio takes, except that all of the songs are performed solo, on guitar and piano. A good cross-section of material from her early LPs, including “Chelsea Morning,” “Marcie,” “Night in the City,” and “Both Sides Now.” Almost an hour in length, too, neat bonuses including a cover of “Get Together,” and what sounds like a studio version of “Urge for Going,” probably her best-loved song that was not included, for whatever reason, on her first albums.”
