The first volume of Joni Mitchellís archive is finally being released in a couple of days, covering her early days on the folk club circuit.  Pretty much everything is previously unreleased (officially, at least).  Amazon is selling the 5-cd box set at £64.99.  Has anyone seen it cheaper elsewhere?  Burning Shed is slightly more expensive once p & p has been added.

Interesting piece in the Grauniad.  To be perfectly honest I'm more interested in any following volume(s), but I could be tempted... https://www.theguardian.com/music/2020/oct/27/joni-mitchell-interview-archives-early-years-cameron-crowe?fbclid=IwAR2bQ5ceaIhNubhaMCbyqyIHmzY6EsdJC3sNuyqB32l-hUKy9n8Pr5Tu2UU

 Found it on sale cheap on a US website - might be worth it even with shipping and import tax?  Smiley

Thanks for posting that, David.  Very interesting.  I donít subscribe to any papers online, so Iím used to them fading away after a paragraph or two.  She still does not sound convinced about the value of her early work, but Iíve heard a fair bit of it on various boots over the years and I have always enjoyed it.  The lyrics of some of her early songs may be a bit iffy, but her singing and playing have always been astonishing.  Besides, this set does include the period when Fairport started to take an interest in her work.  There are a couple of versions of Eastern Rain on it, as I expect you have noticed.
