Joni Mitchell - Reckless Daughter: A Joni Mitchell Anthology book review
Collection of rock writings on Canadian songwriting genius
It’s only recently that rock thinkers have begun to entertain seriously the idea that Joni Mitchell is on a par with peers such as Dylan, Cohen and Neil Young. She has railed bitterly against the objectification of women and sexism of the record industry, as well as the banal simplicity of some passed off as worthy singer-songwriters in her wake. All of this is understandable, however. She has undoubtedly been the victim of condescension over the decades.
