Joni Mitchell 1968, illustrated here from a photo shoot for Vogue Magazine, NYC in November, 1968, age 25.
Mitchell is a Canadian singer-songwriter.
Mitchell began singing in small nightclubs in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, and throughout western Canada, before busking in the streets and nightclubs of Toronto, Ontario.
In 1965, she moved to the United States and began touring. Some of her original songs (“Urge for Going”, “Chelsea Morning”, “Both Sides Now”, “The Circle Game”) were covered by other folk singers, allowing her to sign with Reprise Records and record her debut album, Song to a Seagull, in 1968.
“Both Sides Now” is written in F-sharp major. Mitchell used a guitar tuning of D-A-D-F#-A-D with a capo at the fourth fret.
Settling in Laurel Canyon, California, Mitchell, with popular songs like “Big Yellow Taxi” and “Woodstock”, helped define an era and a generation. Her 1971 album Blue is often cited as one of the best albums of all time.
She then switched labels and began exploring more jazz-influenced melodic ideas, by way of lush pop textures, on 1974’s Court and Spark, which featured the radio hits “Help Me” and “Free Man in Paris” and became her best-selling album.
In the late 1970s, she began working closely with noted jazz musicians, among them Jaco Pastorius, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, and Pat Metheny as well as Charles Mingus, who asked her to collaborate on his final recordings.
With roots in visual art, Mitchell has designed most of her own album covers.
She has received many accolades, including nine Grammy Awards and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997.
It has been said that “Both Sides Now” is one of the most beautiful songs ever written.
