Brian’s Mixtape #17: The Laurel Canyon

Brian’s been around for a while, as much as he likes to keep up with the young ones, he has to admit that’s he’s getting on a bit. So old in face that he remembers another exciting time for folk music, the 60s and 70s in Laurel Canyon in California. Artists like Joni Mitchell, Judee Sill, Jackson Browne, Neil Young and many others hung out and collaborated. So Brian’s put together a playlist with some of the music they created.
