Joni Mitchell Archives — Vol. 2

Da vi anmeldte boksen Joni Mitchell Archives – Vol 1: The Early Years (1963-1967) for noen måneder siden, skrev redaktør Jan Granlie at

«For alle Mitchell-fans der ute, er det bare å anskaffe seg denne boksen. Og for dere som kjenner noen som lider av Mitchell-blodfan-syndromet, finnes det neppe en bedre julegave enn denne ustyrtelig vakre boksen. Og siden dette kun er ‘Volume 1’, kan vi kanskje forvente flere ukjente opptak fra hele karrieren til «dronningen», så det er bare å sette av plass under ‘M’ i samlingen, for dette er historisk materiale man bare skal ha!»

Til høsten — nærmere bestemt 29. oktober 2021 —  kommer den etterlyste boksen «Vol. 2». Denne nye boksen må ikke forveksles med boksen Joni Mitchell The Reprise Albums (1968 – 1971), som er en gjenutgivelse av Joni Mitchells fire første album, utgitt på Reprise Records: Song To A Seagull (1968), Clouds (1969), Ladies Of The Canyon (1970) og Blue (1971). Den nye Archives-boksen boksen vil som denne dekke årene 1968-1971, før hun i 1972 gikk over til David Geffens da nystartede Asylum Records.

Det er bare følge med på https://jonimitchell.com/.

Boksen vil utgis som en 5 CD-boks, og en 10 LP-boks, den siste i et begrenset opplag. Konsertopptakene fra Carnegie Hall 1. februar 1969 vil dessuten utgis separat som en trippel-LP. Her er det vi vet om innholdet i Joni Mitchell Archives, Vol 2: The Reprise Years (1968-1971) som blir utgitt 29. oktober 2021:

The tracks on Archives Vol. 2 have been sequenced chronologically to follow Mitchell in real time through one of the most creative periods of her career. The collection uncovers several unreleased Mitchell originals, including “Jesus” recorded in 1969 at her friend Jane Lurie’s New York apartment in Chelsea, which also served as the setting for the song “Chelsea Morning.”

Other highlights include Mitchell’s performance at Le Hibou Coffee House in Ottawa on March 19, 1968 that was recorded by Jimi Hendrix and a concert at the Paris Theatre in London on October 29, 1970 that was broadcast on the BBC. The latter includes several songs destined to appear on Blue the following year: “Carey,” “River” and “My Old Man.” In addition, singer-songwriter James Taylor joined Mitchell to perform with her during the second half of the show.
