Saturday Music Club: not quite more folk-rockers (but some)

Joni Mitchell: The Way It Is

CBC video of her performing; less good video, but the CBC logo comes up at end.

The Wind in the Willows: Djini Judy (featuring Deborah Harry some years before Blondie)

Blondie in 1974 and 1975 and talking with college students in 1981

Autoclave: Go Far

Helium: Superball

Bangles: I'm In Line (Annette Zilinskas still the bassist)

Decent career retro with Susanna Hoffs

Tanita Tikaram: Good Tradition

Go-Go's: King of Confusion

Bananarama: Hotline to Heaven
I have a friend who grew actively angry with me for suggesting that Bananarama ever recorded anything that wasn't cheerful fluff...but on their second album, particularly, along with some other somber if perhaps overproduced charmers, there was this lovely song about having to separate from someone going into a paranoid schizophrenic spiral...though in the edit used for this video, they cut the lines at the end of the album track:
 (Going up without me, baby/I won't let you drive me crazy)

The Roches: Second Family
