Joni Mitchell – The Studio Albums 1968-1979 [10CD Limited Edition Box Set] (2012)

Posted by admin on March 9, 2019as


From her beginnings as part of the Laurel canyon set, Joni Mitchell has gone on to become one of the most accomplished singer songwriters of the late 20th century. Throughout her career her music has continued to evolve and astound ranging from folk, pop, jazz and even avant-garde. Joni Mitchell has many contemporaries like Carole King, Janis Joplin, or Aretha Franklin, but none experimented so much with their artistic identities or so bravely explored territory outside of the accepted confines of pop music, resulting in a creative legacy which paved the way for performers ranging from Patti Smith and Chrissie Hynde to Madonna and Laura Marling.” This box set contains 10 of Mitchell’s studio albums from 1968 to 1979 and includes her critically and commercially acclaimed albums Blue and Court and Spark. Both have been named as among the best albums ever made with Blue peaking at #3 in the UK albums chart. Hit singles included in the set are ‘Both Sides,’ ‘Now,’ ‘Big Yellow Taxi,’ ‘California,’ ‘Free Man in Paris’ and many more.

    These albums aren’t broken down into individual songs, they’re each just one file. Is there any way you could re-up this box set with the songs as individual files? Thanks in advance!

    Hi admin,
    Any chance this could be re-upped with each song as individual MP3 files? I thought you might not have gotten my last request cause I didn’t address it to the uploader. I’d sure appreciate it.
