TNB Night Owl – Judy, Joni, Carole, and Carly

Judy Collins, Joni Mitchell, Carole King, and Carly Simon were among the greatest female solo artists of the sixties and seventies. All four were gifted songwriters in addition to being genuinely talented singers. There’s a ton of interesting history and backstories here. Unfortunately, I am out of time and energy. It’s taken me nearly an hour to write this one short paragraph while I’ve struggled to stay awake. Anyway, enjoy the music while I dive into unconsciousness.
