A Joni Mitchell Playlist

Around ten years ago, while I was working at Warner Music, I tried to get Joni Mitchell to allow audiophile reissue label Mobile Fidelity to remaster and reissue her albums, but she wasn’t having it. Her concern was that they would clean up the sound too much and thereby change the experience of listening to it. I’m glad she’s finally come around on the idea of remastering.

Today’s playlist consists of 30 songs from Mitchell’s catalogue.
