Win a Joni Mitchell Box Set (‘Love Has Many Faces’) from Blogcritics

joni mitchell love has many facesJoni Mitchell is back with a four-disc boxed set. Love Has Many Faces is a collectors’ edition with 53 newly remastered songs about love and heartbreak from 40 years of recording. Together they make up a four-act “ballet” carefully curated by Mitchell herself.

“I am a painter who writes songs,” explains the singer-songwriter. “My songs are very visual. The words create scenes. What I have done here is to gather some of these scenes (like a documentary filmmaker) and by juxtaposition, edit them into a whole new work.”

Along with four CDs spanning four decades of music, the package, designed by Mitchell herself, includes six new paintings by Mitchell, and an autobiographical text illuminating her recording process.

The process of organizing the music into four thematic acts, she says, was a lot like making a film. “I had forty years of footage to review. Then, suddenly, scenes began to hook up. Then series began to form. Instead of it being an emotional roller coaster ride as it was before – crammed into one disc – themes began to develop. Moods sustained…When this long editorial process (two years) finally came to rest, I had four ballets or a four-act ballet – a quartet. I also had a box set.”

Music Review: Christina Friis – ‘The Quiet of Knowing: Joni Mitchell Unknown’

My wife and I were standing on a corner in New Orleans admiring some items in a shop window. Then we heard a voice singing. Memories from my youth flashed through my brain – Joni Mitchell, Judy Collins, Joan Baez – and I was sure this was a recording. Then we looked toward the source of the sound and saw Christina Friis strumming on her guitar and supercharging the New Orleans air.
