Joni Mitchell continues to dig through her archives with a second volume of rarities and unreleased material that follows Archives - Vol. 1: The Early Years (1963-1967) published in 2020. With its 119 tracks (over 6 hours of music!), Archives, Vol. 2: The Reprise Years (1968-1971) offers a chronologically-ordered tracklist presenting songs recorded during the period linking her first album, Song to a Seagull (1968), with her fourth album, Blue (1971). It was a sort of golden age of artistic uniqueness in a folk scene which was jam-packed with contenders jostling for the top spot. This release is a snapshot, above all, of her personal evolution, from the streets and small folk clubs to the most prestigious venues...

Demos recorded in her home or in her friend Jane Lurie's New York flat, sessions at Sunset Sound studio in Hollywood, a TV appearance on Dick Cavett's show, live in Ann Arbor or at the Hibou Coffee House in Ottawa (recorded by Jimi Hendrix himself!), this boxed set also includes a beautiful London concert in October 1970 broadcast by the BBC, where she performed Carey, River and My Old Man, which were to be included on Blue the following year. And during this latter show, we find one James Taylor is at her side. Another highlight of this impressive collection is her February 1st 1969 concert at New York's Carnegie Hall, a sort of apogee for an artist who was then just 25 years old... As always, this kind of copious box set is above all intended for the hardcore aficionados of the Canadian’s music, although novices are also sure to be hypnotised by her otherworldly voice and these introspective lyrics, whose style would go on to influence whole generations of songwriters... © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

10 Queens of Folk

An acoustic guitar. Sometimes not much else. But always a unique voice… In recent years, the folk revival has produced some new major and exceptional female singers, just like their elders in the sixties, and particularly the seventies. Some of these Queens of folk have earnt their place in the Hall of Fame, while others remain equally essential hidden gems. This (subjective) selection features ten of the best.

Johnny Cash Behind Bars

Two legendary live albums released at the end of the sixties gave Johnny Cash’s career a huge boost and turned him into an international star. They were two records were unlike any others: they were recorded in prison. But how did the Man in Black find himself in such an unusual concert hall?

Joni Mitchell: the Blue Period

An immaculate masterpiece of 70's folk, 'Blue' celebrates its 50th birthday this year. And it hasn't aged a day. But why are artists the world over still so fascinated by this fourth, intimate album by the Canadian singer-songwriter?
