Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 3/500!
Without a doubt one of the most important and influential artists in all of contemporary music, Joni Mitchell is much more than a legendary icon of the singer-songwriter art form. Since her 1968 debut LP, the five-time Grammy winner has released a long string of stellar albums as emotionally powerful as they are stylistically diverse. This is her 1971 poetic masterpiece, pressed on 180-gram vinyl. Includes "California," "River," and "A Case of You."
With song after song of regrets and sorrow and a smoky-blue cover shot of Mitchell on the edge of tears, this may be the ultimate breakup album. Its whispery minimalism is also Mitchell's greatest musical achievement. Stephen Stills and James Taylor lend an occasional hand, but in 'California,' 'Carey' and 'This Flight Tonight,' Mitchell sounds utterly alone in her melancholy, turning the sadness into tender art.
Sad, spare, and beautiful, Blue is the quintessential confessional singer/songwriter album. Forthright and poetic, Joni Mitchell's songs are raw nerves, tales of love and loss etched with stunning complexity...Unrivaled in its intensity and insight, Blue remains a watershed.
