kd lang is the best
From the songs that are available from this album, I would have to say kd lang's "Help me" is the best. She has such a smooth and incredible voice that she has the ability to envoke character while at the same time paying tribute to the words and music of Joni Mitchell. Although the entire album is great, my impression is the other artists tried to make the song their own instead of taking a cue from the art as it existed.
I only listened to the Prince song.
I have a confession. I am a Canadian who does not love Joni Mitchell. I am a Canadian who loves Prince and who has never understood his fascination with Joni Mitchell. Perhaps this song provides a clue to her brilliance. Because it certainly reveals his genius and underrated piano playing.
