Biography

When the dust settles, Joni Mitchell may stand as the most important and influential female recording artist of the late 20th century. Uncompromising and iconoclastic, Mitchell confounded expectations at every turn; restlessly innovative, her music evolved from deeply personal folk stylings into pop, jazz, avant-garde, and even world music, presaging the multicultural experimentation of the ...

For any die-hard Joni Mitchell fan Misses is an important part of a collection of her works.
Stephanie Sullivan
She is a writer or singular talent and these "Misses" display her ability well.

No one made more impact on the sixties folk-rock scene with her deeply personal songs than Joni Mitchell. Certainly with songs like "Woodstock" and "The Circle Game" her albums galvanized our collective consciousness by quite deliberately turning toward both social consciousness and personal intimacy with a fresh, poetic, and unique approach.. Of course, no one as observant and perceptive as Mitchell can help but make shrewd side remarks at the inanity of social circumstance or political happenstance along the way, and we laugh along while accompanying her on this soulful journey through the risky, crater-filled landscape of cultural change and personal adventure in the sixties, seventies and beyond. Here we have her own favorites over the years, as opposed to those particular efforts which were more popular and commercially successful, which she has in another album labeled "Hits". Here then, are the songs she personally considers her best even though they were not commercially successful. Yet that is a terrific album as well.
From the opening "Passion Play", included a wonderful and very successful album made in the early 1990s, to "A Case Of You", from her immensely popular "Blue" album, we find many of her own favorites are much more complex and layered than the hits she is more famous for. Many of these songs take a little getting used to before one appreciates them., In general, they are not as immediately accessible or as apparently wonderful as are her more popular works. Yet, this is an artist who is capable of many moods, flavors of expressions, and abilities to communicate. Here is a sampling of an amazingly talented artist who is willing to share what she thinks is her most accomplished and meaningful work. This is almost a no-brainer, folks. Listen and enjoy!

A companion to the more popular Hits collection, Misses more thoroughly demonstrates Mitchell's depth, versatility and, yes, genius. This collection surveys, mainly, Joni's post-1980 work (highlights: Sex Kills, Magdalene Laundries, Passion Play), which has been largely overlooked by radio and her early-career fans. Another stand-out is Impossible Dreamer, a dreamy and pretty (yet powerful) cut from Dog Eat Dog. Joni's body of work is deserving of a larger, deeper anthology, but Hits and Misses will do for now. If you're unfamiliar with Joni's work and you wonder why countless musicians and fiercely dedicated fans worship La Mitch, pick up this set and find out.

A companion to the Hits collection, Misses gives you 14 songs picked by Joni herself, that she felt missed out on some of the popularity and acclaim she thought they deserved. I picked it up purely out of curiosity. I didn't need Hits, I already had most of those on the original CDs (Court and Spark, Blue, etc.).
Misses makes for a nice sampler, leaning a little more heavily on the post-70s Joni. Great music, imagery, and some biting social commentary (it wouldn't be Joni without it!)
If you are new to Joni Mitchell, or just want the popular stuff, you might want to pass this one up. But if you have more than a causual interest in her music, it's worth getting.
Some of the best are Beat of Black Wings, The Magdeline Laundries, Sex Kills, The Reoccurring Dream.
Joni lobbied against putting this one in a jewel case. It says so right in the liner notes.

Hits was simply that: A collection of Joni's greatest hits. This compliation includes cuts from her Jazz experiments of the Seventies (including Wolf in Lindsey from her Mingus album, named after Jazz bassist Charles Mingus who she worked with before his death), her forays into electronic music in the '80s(e.g. Impossible Dreamer, and Chalk Mark In a Rainstorm), and her return to her folk roots in the '90s (e.g. Sex Kills). It's one of the most interesting compilations I've listened to in a long time.

Being a huge Joni fan, I already owned "Hits" along with nine other of her albums ranging from the popular ("Blue," "Court and Spark," "Ladies of the Canyon") to her lesser known works ("Song to a Seagull," "Dog Eat Dog," "Night Ride Home"). I decided to buy "Misses" even though I already owned half of the songs from my other albums. It was pretty much what I'd imagined...some of the songs were great, others were real "misses" indeed. "A Case of You," for example, is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard. I think it is one of Joni's very best songs. Some of the other songs are a little goofy--I hesitate to say that they are "bad," although many other people not so committed to Joni may not be so kind. "The Beat of Black Wings," for example, is a little strange. I was impressed, though, with "The Wolf that Lives in Lindsey"--a very haunting song. I also really loved "For the Roses" and now want to own that album. If you are a die-hard Joni fan, you should get this one. If you're looking for her more mainstream music, however, go with "Hits"--it really does a nice job of capturing all of her "popular" music. "Misses," on the other hand, is like Joni's dark, evil twin.
