In her long career, Canadian songstress Joni Mitchell has been hailed as everything from 1960s folk icon to 20th century cultural figure, artistic iconoclast to musical heroine, extreme romantic confessor to outspoken commentator and lyrical painter. While some criticised what they viewed as her seeming dismissal of commercial considerations, she simply viewed her trajectory as that of any artist serious about the integrity of their work. But whatever musical position she took, she was always one step ahead of the game, making eclectic and innovative music. Albums like The Ladies Of The Canyon, Blue, Hejira and Mingus helped define each era of the 1970s, as she moved from exquisitely pitched singer songwriter material towards jazz. Her past influence was obvious in the 1980s when hoards of assuming successors (some highly respectable) gathered her exotic breadcrumbs with a view to distilling their illusive compounds, while Joni simultaneously forged ahead. This book revisits her studio albums in detail from 1968's Song to a Seagull to 2007's Shine, providing anecdote and insight into the recording sessions, an in depth analysis along with a complimentary level of lyrical and instrumental examination.

In February of 1996, Joni Mitchell was honored by the Grammy Awards in two separate categories, which represent the two sides of her creativity. As an accomplished painter, her self portrait on the cover of her "Turbulent Indigo" album won her the trophy as "Best Album Cover Artist," and the music contained on the LP won the "Best Pop Performance, Female." Only months later it was her personal life that was in the headlines as news that the daughter she had given up for adoption as a teenager, had been seeking her birth mother. With all of this creative and personal activity in her life, Joni is officially back in the spotlight, and the time has come for a hard cover biography on this fascinating star. Including revealing information from exclusive new interviews, rare TV interviews, and several inside sources-Joni's friends, rivals and contemporaries-this book will fully examine this beloved performer from every angle, public and private. Mark Bego will also recount his own 1990s personal interview with the elusive Joni Mitchell herself. The book will include an examination of: ·Joni's sudden role as a mother, in her 50's, as her daughter Kileen successfully finds her after over 30 years ·The truth about her rumored love affairs with Crosby, Stills, Nash AND Young ·Her relationships with James Taylor, Bonnie Raitt, Linda Ronstadt, Bob Dylan, Peter Gabriel, Judy Collins, and Georgia O'Keefe ·Joni's rich catalog of music, and her place in rock & roll history

Court and Spark is Joni Mitchell's most overt attempt at making a hit record, full of glossy production, catchy choruses, and even guest stars from every stratum of rock culture, high (Robbie Robertson) and low (Cheech and Chong). The record was a smash, reaching number two on the charts in March of 1974, spawning three hit singles; Help Me, Free Man in Paris and Raised on Robbery and cementing Mitchell's position as a commercial as well as an artistic force. Sean Nelson, a well known musician himself (Harvey Danger, the Long Winters), is particularly well equipped to understand all the elements that went into the making of this classic album, and he does so with clarity and wit.

Popular music owes greatly to the spirit of rebellion. In all of its diversified, experimental, modern-day micro-genres, music's roots were first watered by good old-fashioned social dissension- its incendiary heights pushed heavenward by radicals and rogue revolutionaries. And perhaps none are more influential and non-conformist than women. Always first in line to give convention a sound thrashing, women in music have penned sonic masterpieces, championed sweeping social movements, and breathed life into sounds yet unimagined. Today's guitar-wielding heroines continue to blaze the trail, tapping reservoirs and soundscapes still unknown to their male counterparts- hell hath no fury like a woman with an amplifier. Women Icons of Popular Music puts the limelight on 24 legendary artists who challenged the status quo and dramatically expanded the possibilities of women in the highly competitive music world. Using critical acclaim and artistic integrity as benchmarks of success, this can't-put-down resource features rich biographical and musical analyses of a diverse array of musicians from country, pop, rock, R&B, soul, indie, and hip-hop. It goes beyond the shorter, less detailed biographical information found in many women in rock compendiums by giving readers a more in-depth understanding of these artists as individuals, as well as providing a larger context-social, musical, political, and personal-for their success and legacy. Among the featured: BLPatsy Cline BLDiana Ross BLAretha Franklin BLJoan Baez BLJanis Joplin BLJoni Mitchell BLCarole King BLPatti Smith BLTina Turner BLMadonna BLTori Amos BLMary J. Blige BLAni DiFranco Highlighted in sidebars throughout are related trends, movements, events, and issues to give readers a broad perspective of the defining moments in music and pop culture history. With discographies, illustrations, and a print and electronic resource guide, Women Icons of Popular Music is a rousing, insightful resource for students and music fans alike.

The Bootleg Guide is the ultimate in reference works for the 1960s and the 1970s bootleg recordings. Within these pages lies a history of rock at its best, as performed on stage or in the studio. Each entry is catalogued by title, date, featured tracks, and contains a quality rating and comments on the nature and origin of the recording. Cross-references are provided to other titles and extensive information is available on alternate titles of bootlegs. In many cases, quirky facts about a particular title are given-something that in itself may make a title a highly desirable and sought-after 'rarity' amongst collectors. Limited editions are listed to help the reader and collector develop a clearer picture of just how obtainable a bootleg may be. Bootlegs are unofficial 'live' and studio recordings of artists and bands that are released onto vinyl, tape or CD. By definition, most are so rare that they change hands only for vastly inflated sums or are traded by networks of dedicated collectors worldwide. Serious fans and collectors have been known to spend as much as $225 for an original, scratchy vinyl recording of bands like Deep Purple and the Grateful Dead dating back to the early seventies. The rarest of all are akin to valuable paintings as far as collectors and traders are concerned.

Every Sunday, Caro finds herself back in the place where it all began, lured by memory, guilt and all the losses she cannot reconcile. Constantly dwelling on the past, she immerses herself in work, where long hours insulate her from the world. For Caro, the present is two dimensional: it is history that is loaded with colour and scent. Sometimes she tries to get some perspective on those years, going over that terrible summer twenty years ago, when her band of three inseparable friends disintegrated forever. Estelle died two weeks after her fifteenth birthday. It was sudden, violent, shocking. Afterwards, Cormac left and never returned. Now she waits for release, which comes in the form of an unlikely alliance. Aifric Campbell's second novel is filled with longing - for childhood and the liberating power of friendship.
