Biography

When the dust settles, Joni Mitchell may stand as the most important and influential female recording artist of the late 20th century. Uncompromising and iconoclastic, Mitchell confounded expectations at every turn; restlessly innovative, her music evolved from deeply personal folk stylings into pop, jazz, avant-garde, and even world music, presaging the multicultural experimentation of the ...

DREAMY, ATMOSPHERIC SONGS
This atmospheric album contains several gems, like My Secret Place, a duet with Peter Gabriel. Lakota is a political protest song with a lovely Native American feel, and on Dancin' Clown, Billy Idol and Tom Petty help out on vocals. I don't know if it's mean as a comment on dance culture, but it's an uptempo love song with a catchy tune and contains the phrase "cherchez la femme" which may or may not be a reference to the song by Dr Buzzard's Savannah Band. If so, it's very gentle, inlike for example Frank Zappa's funny but acerbic Dancin' Fool. Cool Water is a dreamy poetic piece with Willie Nelson adding vocals. The lilting, swaying Beat Of Black Wings is ominous and disturbing as it probes the psyche of a disillusioned veteran - a line from the lyric gives the album its title: ""I'm just a chalk mark in a rainstorm." One of my favorites is The Reocurring Dream - a criticism of advertising and shallow materialism that Bongwater's Ann Magnuson explores so delightfully on Bongwater's work - with its interesting arrangement. Chalk Mark concludes with A Bird That Whistles, her gentle interpretation of the traditional Corrina, Corrina. This is a brilliant album that contains some of her most compelling songs.

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Jonathan Bryce on 17 Sep 2001
Format: Audio CD
Hard to believe that the album is now over 12 years old. Reminiscent of "Hejira" in some tracks, but has the best Vietnam aftermath track I know in "The Beat of Black Wings", from where the album title comes (and what a great title). The weakest track would be "Dancing Clown", which seemed intended for single release.
One of her strongest - perhaps not quite "Hejira", but with enough content elsewhere to make it worthwhile - but then Mitchell is always worthwhile.

Format: Audio CD
This album from 1988 has a very cosmoplitan feel for Joni has assembled for this album a diverse cast of players, which includes "Don Henley",Willie Nelson",sax player "Wayne Shorter" and "Benjamin Orr" from the Cars.
Instead of "Thomas Dolby" producing, whose cluttered production buried her previous recording "Dog eat Dog" her ex "Larry Klein" (really great bass player)is in the directors chair. From the superb opening track a duet with "Peter Gabriel" you know this is going to be an audio treat,using a multi-tracked vocal for Ms Michell, this technique turns this track into a haunting song.
This multi-tracked vocal effect is used to great effect throughout the album creating an eerie, echoing quality. This is best exemplified on the centrepiece of the whole album "The Beat of Black wings" where the layered harmonies induce an almost hypnotic melancholy and huge shafts of synthesizer sound wash over its gentle percussive roll, in other words "awesome".
Another stand out track is "The Tea Leaf Prophecy" with guest back ground vocals from "Princes" one time band members "Wendy Melvoin" and "Lisa Coleman".
The track that suffers from lack of quility control is the throw away "Dancin' Clown" which sounds like it was put together on a rainy afternoon.
"Joni" has put together an album which still retains her wit,lyrical sense and intelligence that charaterizes all her work, best album from her in the 80's...
