Blue

 


Good article in today's Guardian on Joni Mitchell's incomparable Blue, which is fifty years old.

I've mentioned it before, but digging into a Joni Mitchell boxset has been one of the great musical adventures of my life. So much genius, and yet more to discover.

  1. Fabulous album. I will be performing "A Case Of You" this coming Saturday at a concert in Seattle. I transcribed the dulcimer part as an acoustic guitar part and tweaked it very slightly to suit the instrument change. Lovely part. I was tempted to just buy a dulcimer though...
