Here's my (entirely subjective) best of Joni Mitchell playlist. I'm throwing it together by listening to all of Joni Mitchell's album in chronological order, out of the corner of my ear, at work. Needless to say, this is all being very haphazardly executed.
This is a bad idea, insofar as I can imagine a lot of her ouevre grows on you. Also it's a bad idea cos I'm getting absolutely sick of Joni Mitchell songs going round and round in my head. Nevertheless, the hero must tilt at windmills.
As can be easily seen, I rate Blue' high high high above any earlier album. I've known it for years, but it still seems to me to be absolutely stacked.
I'm onto Court and Spark and I feel I'm missing the point. Don't like the saxophone much.
I will add plentifully from Hejira when I get to it.
At the moment it's an aerial view I'm amassing but will get into the nitty gritty soon.
Set me right, or just join in with the worship.
