This is the American release of the UK version released in November of 2016.

Nine Grammys. More than ten million albums sold. Named one of the greatest singers and songwriters of all time by Rolling Stone. Here, for the first time, an essential collection of writings on Joni Mitchell that charts every major moment of the famed troubadour's extraordinary career, as it happened.

From album reviews to candid conversations, Joni: The Anthology collects the most incisive commentary of the icon's singular journey as a singer, songwriter, and artist, including:

• Carefully curated album reviews, critical appraisal, and luminous interviews spanning her career between 1967 and 2007, as well as thoughtful commentary on her early years.

• Collecting material long unavailable, rare, or otherwise difficult to find, Joni is an accessible guide to appreciating the highs - and the lows - of a twentieth century legend.

"Once I crossed the border, I began to write and my voice changed. I no longer was imitative of the folk style. My voice was then my real voice and with a slight folk influence, but from the first album it was no longer folk music. It was just a girl with a guitar that made it look that way." - Joni Mitchell, 1994
