Jim Varsos passed away of cancer on 10/5. He cowrote the following songs with MJ:

Burning My Heart at Both Ends
I Don’t Have a Prayer
I Need Your Light
It’s All Done With Mirrors
The Line
Someone’s Out There
A Dream Within a Dream

In concert, Gustavus Field House, Saint Peter November 10, 1979

https://mjblue.com/songs/Mother%20Night.mp3

Songwriter: Mark Henley
Lyrics: 
Mother night, starling flight
On homeward path do bend
Colored light, for the sight
Of window watching friends

I can tell you've been here in the morning
Insweeping on the grass
But I know it won't last too long

Violin echo in
And deeper darkened still
Cow bells, chow bells
Over the hill swells
Infant winter's chill

Seen the sun going down in the meadow
In streaking all the grass
And I know it won't last too long

And you carry me though
These empty hours again
And you, and you
Making it truly easy to pretend

Seen my feelings melt down all around you
Incasing you in glass
But I know it won't last
And I know it won't last
And I know it won't last too long

  Bluer than Blue music video

Music Video of the Day: Bluer than Blue by Michael Johnson (1978, directed by ????) Posted on August 18, 2021 by Jedadiah Leland 

On August 1st, 1980, MTV premiered and played a total of 116 music videos over a 24 hour period. The 18th video that they played was for Michael Johnson’s Bluer than Blue, which features the singer singing about a failing relationship in a blue-tinged house. 

This was an early music video, made three years before MTV even premiered so it looks fairly primitive to modern eyes. It’s still a step up from the performance clips that were used for most music videos during the late 70s. It actually has a narrative, albeit a simple one.

I've been trying to find an audio version of the Michael Johnson/Mark Henley song "Froggin" to no avail.  My copy of Mark's Riversong LP, where I first heard it, is long gone. I've seen the album on eBay for $40-$50, but I don't want it that bad.   And the song itself doesn't seem to be anywhere I've looked on the internet, nor on YouTube, Apple Music, Amazon music, or Spotify.  Did they ever perform this instrumental in concert?  Is there a version of it lying around in the archives?  Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated.
