The Reprise Albums (1968-1971) features Joni Mitchell's first four studio albums including her 1971 masterpiece, Blue. It also includes a brand-new enhanced remix of her 1968 debut album Song to a Seagull. Completing the set is Clouds (1969), and Ladies of the Canyon (1970), which features her signature hit "Big Yellow Taxi".
This essential collection brings together the albums that helped establish Mitchell as one of the most-talented songwriters of her generation. It includes essential tracks like “River”, “Chelsea Morning”, “Both Sides Now”, “Big Yellow Taxi”, “Woodstock”, and “The Circle Game”.
On June 22, 1971, Joni Mitchell released Blue, concluding her prolific four album run for Reprise Records with an album considered by many to be one of the greatest of all time. Its stirring, confessional songs have been celebrated by music lovers and critics alike for decades while inspiring a wide variety of artists as diverse as Prince and Taylor Swift. Even today, its stature as a masterpiece continues to grow. In 2020, the album was named #3 on Rolling Stone’s list of the '500 Greatest Albums of All Time'.
Song to a Seagull, produced by David Crosby, was recently remixed by Mitchell and Matt Lee. “The original mix was atrocious,” Mitchell said. “It sounded like it was recorded under a jello bowl, so I fixed it!.”
Limited Edition heavyweight quadruple vinyl produced by Reprise Records in 2021. Only 10,000 copies worldwide.
The cover art for The Reprise Albums (1968-1971) features a previously unseen self-portrait Mitchell sketched during the time period. The collection also includes an essay by singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile, another artist who’s been influenced greatly by Mitchell.
