Records in Review

July 30, 1968

Joni Mitchell, 24, from Canada, has her first album out, "Joni Mitchell," from Reprise. There isn't a bad song on it. Her best known composition, "Both Sides Now," isn't on the LP. "Night in the City," which also is being heard around and about, is. Miss Mitchell plays piano and guitar and designed the album's psychedelic art cover.

Miss Mitchell's concerns are love and personal things. She has a lot of insights to share, but she dosen't shove them at the listener.

She sounds much like Judy Collins. But in "Night in the City," her voice is ready at any instant to take off in a Swiss yodel. It's a very individualistic, memorable delivery.
