In April 1970, James Taylor gave a concert at Harvard University. Although most of his set was early JT, he included one song that was not his composition: "For Free", written by Joni Mitchell. Taylor had met Mitchell the year before at a songwriting workshop at the Newport Festival. She ended her relationship with Graham Nash a few months earlier and gravitated toward James Taylor. They gave some memorable concerts together in 1970 but their romance was not a long one.
Taylor never included this song on any of his albums.
Mitchell and Taylor continued a friendship over the years and James Taylor notably sang at a tribute concert to her work.
