Only just found these. Thanks for posting, John. Fascinating for fans. My impression was that only the last clip ("Urge For Going") really hints at what was going to happen to this earnest and slightly ungainly young lady. What was going through her mind as she tries walking along rail tracks and miming at the same time?!

Even earlier - 1965, when still Joni Anderson

Dave Van Ronk, present on this tv show, was amongst the first to sing her songs.

Yeah, I've seen that. She's already got that open G tuning down and no mistake!

Wonderful stuff! What's weird in the colour clips is that although she is miming, you can hear the sound of the river, meaning that either they had a mike but didn't let her sing live or that they dubbed on generic water sounds afterwards!
