Hello all,

I received a few donations after the post on Facebook and the newsletter over the weekend and now I'm good. No more needed for a while. Thanks to everyone for your support, whether monetary or emails. All were so special to receive.

If anyone wants to receive a MJ postcard, just send me a private message through this message board or an email (mjsite1 @ mjblue.com) with your address. If you ever received a thank you card from me, it's the same card.

Many thanks to the webmaster of jonimitchell.com for the advice of converting this to a fan site. He's been nothing but inspirational for the last 1-1/2 years. I'm trying to do things right so no more demands are made concerning this site and so it'll stay up for a long time!

  New YouTube audio: Motherlode
Posted by: Cindy M - 02-20-2019, 09:11 PM - Forum: MJ YouTube - Replies (2)


Michael Johnson, Mark Henley & Mary MacGregor
Motherlode 1976
Written by Richard Pinney

A demo tape made by the them with one MJ solo.

From: https://www.mjblue.com/bletters.html
Sanskrit has bought the first album from Atco and will be re-releasing it March 1, and in the meantime Johnson is working on new material for a third album. During the breather before returning to the concert trail in March, he was working with entertainer Mark Henley, his next door neighbor, and singer Mary MacGregor, who also are charges of Projects IV, on a three-person act. They wanted to explore their group potential. But earlier this month after playing an opening date at Charlotte's Web in Rockford, Ill., they decided the trio wasn't clicking and will continue their individual careers.

The complete list is:  (4 more to put up on YouTube.)

  New Youtube: Honey Wind Blows video
Posted by: Cindy M - 02-12-2019, 06:02 PM - Forum: MJ YouTube - Replies (2)

I love this song. It was the first song I ever recorded at a MJ 1974 concert on a hand held recorder. I have a recording of him performing it at the Tangerine Room in Denver in 1966. This video is from 1996 so he continued to perform it once a decade or so.  Smile He did it so beautifully.

  Ugly Woman - new Youtube demo 1970
Posted by: Cindy M - 02-10-2019, 06:12 PM - Forum: MJ YouTube - Replies (1)

Michael Johnson - Ugly Woman c. 1970 demo


I can't make the last two words. Help?

On a reel to reel tape with a 1970 concert and 4 other demos
The last recording I have of him performing this in concert was in 1972.
aka "Gonna Go Out and Find An Ugly Woman to Love"
Written by James Ford, recorded by James Reed
Ain't gonna drink no more tobacco
Aiin't gonna smoke no more moonshine
Ain’t gonna talk about pretty women
Ain't gonna bother now to waste my time
Ain't gonna drink no more black coffee
Thinkin' about her till the broad daylight
I'm gonna go out and find an ugly woman to love

I'm gonna go get on my walkin' shoes
And walk on down the avenue
I'm gonna keep on walkin' till I find an ugly woman to love
I don't care if she's short, don't care if she's fat
Good to me and that's where it's at
I'm gonna go and find an ugly woman to love

  New "Some People's Lives" Concert Video YouTube
Posted by: Cindy M - 02-09-2019, 11:49 PM - Forum: MJ YouTube - No Replies

Pat requested Some People's Lives. I've added a 1999 video. Sorry, it's very guitar heavy. (Is that the right phrase?) He includes a brief story about rooming with Steve Martin and Gary Muledeer. Don't miss the funny guitar stuff after the song.

  Amazon Wish List / radio mention / Requests
Posted by: Cindy M - 02-08-2019, 05:06 PM - Forum: Michael Discussion - Replies (5)

Hello all,

I have started a Amazon wish list for supplies I need to maintain Michale's website and organize his music media. I only have one item on there as of now. I thought I'd start this in case you thought any monetary donations would go to cat toys or high priced wine.  Tongue  Still unemployed so I'm thankful I cut out all wine a few months ago.


An old friend/former coworker messaged me the following a couple days ago:
Tonight on while in the car at about 5:55 pm radio station Love 105 was cueing up an MJ song and they mentioned the MJBlue website
This is a Twin Cities radio station and the song was "Almost Like Being in Love." Wonderful that his music is still being played and it made my day to hear about the website mention!

If I can find it (currently misplaced, hence my Amazon wishlist), I'm putting up a video later today which was a recent request. If anyone has specific video or song requests, please let me know.
