Back Catalog: Joni Mitchell
Barney Hoskyns, Blender, Fall 2002
IF ANY WOMAN has kept up with the big boys (Dylan, Young and co.) in the obstacle race that is folk-based singer-songwriter rock, that woman is Roberta Joan Mitchell. Canadian-born, Joni was the arrogant '60s angel with the blond hair, pellucid voice and open guitar tunings, peering deep into her heart as she examined themes both personal and political. Her unparalleled career charts the long journey from '60s innocence to Noughties experience.
