Editors’ Notes

It’s telling that it took until 1996 for Joni Mitchell’s first greatest-hits album hit the market—with the provision that she be allowed to compile a companion album of Misses. The obvious songs are here—“Big Yellow Taxi,” “Woodstock,” “Help Me,” “Free Man in Paris,” “River,” “Both Sides Now”—and the album features the first LP appearance of her 1967 version of “Urge for Going” (covered by Tom Rush on his excellent The Circle Game album), previously only a b-side. This is a quick summary that’s perfect for those raised on Top 40 radio of the ‘60s and ‘70s.

Joni Mitchell - Brilliant.
'Nuf said.

“Don’t It Always Seem To Go"

“You Don’t Know What You’ve Got ’Til It’s Gone!”-And it seems like lately Joni Mitchell is hanging on for dear life! “Hits” is a play-on-words from one of the most clever Song-Smiths ever to journey down from Canada to California.

Beautiful & Seamless transition from Folk to Jazz to Pop to Standards. Enjoy these offerings; Please!…by Grimmbo.

Mitchell's gift for writing personal, folk-inspired songs about the thorny side of life and love was inarguable (particularly on albums like 1970's Ladies of the Canyon and 1971's Blue), but Mitchell also brought the same smarts and eloquence to glossy pop on her commercial...
