'MULTI-TALENTED NORTH-AMERICAN FOLK/ROCK/POP AND JAZZ - SINGER'
on 2 April 2015
'Joni' was born 'Roberta Joan Anderson' in 1943 in 'Fort Macleod' Alberta, Canada.
Singer/ Songwriter 'Joni Mitchell' is known for her 'Folk' and 'Rock/Pop' releases down the years, her chart success was
largely in the U.S A/C Charts, achieving several high-peak numbers such as - 'Help Me' (U.S A/C '1' 1974) and 'Free Man
In Paris' (U.S A/C '2' also 74') (These are on-board this release)
Her album sales in the U.S phenomenal for the style of her music, between 1969 and 2007 she had 15 Grammy Award
nominations for her music winning an impressive 8 times (not too many can boast that in truth)
'Joni's' image that we all know is playing guitar and singing on stage, she is in fact a multi-talented instrumentalist as well
as accomplished song-writer.
In the U.K I guess she is best known for her song - 'Big Yellow Taxi' which charted at number '11' here in the U.K 1970,
ironically not doing nearly as well in the U.S. until it's 1996 re-release when it took the number '2' slot.
This album contains many of her best known songs down the years including - 'Both Sides Of Now' (a hit for 'Judy Collins)
A great reflection of 'Joni's' works.
(obviously many will know that she collapsed earlier this week and is in intensive-care in an L.A Hospital currently, we wish
her a full recovery of course)
