In the generation of singer-songwriters who came to fame in the '60s, none has created a more evocative, bittersweet, literate, and reflective body of work than Joni Mitchell. Today's music owes much to her innovation and inspiration.After displaying a haunting and sophisticated quality in such early albums as Joni Mitchell (1968) and Ladies of the Canyon (1970), Mitchell reached her poetic apotheosis in the surreal and mythical Hejira (1976) and Don Juan's Reckless Daughter (1977). In more recent works like Night Ride Home (1991) and Turbulent Indigo (1994) her poetic vision continued to sharpen and grow more penetrating.Joni Mitchell: The Complete Poems and Lyrics -- including lyrics from Joni's newest album, Taming the Tiger, newly added to this paperback edition -- gives us the first opportunity to reconsider Mitchell's written work in the broad sweep of its power, honesty, and reflective beauty.
