The Absolute Sound 40th Anniversary Best Sounding Music!
Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 30/500!
Joni Mitchell's RIAA certified Platinum 1971 album BLUE captures this folk
legend at her absolute peak in form and creativity. Features the Joni gems
Carey, California, and the title track Blue.
"With song after song of regrets and sorrow and a smoky-blue cover shot of Mitchell on the edge of tears, this may be the ultimate breakup album. Its whispery minimalism is also Mitchell's greatest musical achievement. Stephen Stills and James Taylor lend an occasional hand, but in "California," "Carey" and "This Flight Tonight," Mitchell sounds utterly alone in her melancholy, turning the sadness into tender art." - www.rollingstone.com
"Sad, spare, and beautiful, Blue is the quintessential confessional
singer/songwriter album. Forthright and poetic, Joni Mitchell's songs are raw
nerves, tales of love and loss (two words with relative meaning here) etched
with stunning complexity; even tracks like 'All I Want,' 'My Old Man,' and
'Carey' – the brightest, most hopeful moments on the record – are darkened by
bittersweet moments of sorrow and loneliness." – All Music Guide
