JONI MITCHELL: “Ladies Of The Canyon” limited green LP

Ladies of the Canyon is the third studio album by Canadian singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell, released on Reprise Records in 1970. It peaked at No. 27 on the Billboard 200, and has been certified platinum by the RIAA. The title makes reference to Laurel Canyon, a center of popular music culture in Los Angeles during the 1960s, where Mitchell lived while she was writing the album.Specifically, Mitchell lived and wrote at 8217 Lookout Mountain Avenue, the house which is the subject of Graham Nash’s “Our House”. The album includes several of Mitchell’s most noted songs, such as “Big Yellow Taxi”, “Woodstock” and “The Circle Game”.

Of all of Mitchell’s work, this album is the most related to her long-standing friendships and relationships with Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young (whose rock arrangement of “Woodstock” was one of their four radio hits in 1970). Mitchell was living with Graham Nash at the time much of the album was written. A number of the album’s songs, including the aforementioned “Ladies of the Canyon” and “Woodstock”, feature densely stacked, wordless harmony overdubs reminiscent of David Crosby’s oeuvre; Crosby himself has performed “For Free” for many years. “The Circle Game”, one of the artist’s early signature songs, features background vocals from all four.
