Joni Mitchell / The Reprise Albums 1968-1971

4CD or 4LP box set

On 22 June this year Joni Mitchell‘s Blue will be 50 years old. To mark the occasion, Rhino is releasing a four album collection called The Reprise Albums 1968-1971, the next instalment of the Joni Mitchell Archives series.

The box set – available on CD and vinyl – will feature a new mix of Song To A Seagull (1968) and remastered versions of Clouds (1969), Ladies of the Canyon (1970) and Blue (1971).

The reason Song To A Seagull has been remixed is because “The original mix was atrocious,” according to Mitchell. “It sounded like it was recorded under a jello bowl, so I fixed it!”

The Reprise Albums 1968-1971 is available as a 4LP vinyl set or 4CD

The cover art for the new box features a previously unseen self-portrait Mitchell sketched during the time period.

The notes included with The Reprise Albums 1968-1971 include an essay by singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile. She writes: “In my opinion Blue is the greatest album ever made”.

It’s a fairly simple product choice, for fans. Either reasonably-priced 4CD edition or a frankly extortionate (at least in the UK) 4LP vinyl box set.

The Reprise Albums 1968-1971 will be released on 2 July 2021 (was 25 June 2021.

Process which involves going back to the original multi-track tape and remixing as well as remastering
