Joni Mitchell's The Hissing of Summer Lawns: 2022 Remaster on 180g LP. Remastered by Bernie Grundman Under the Supervision of Joni Mitchell. Includes "In France They Kiss On Main Street," "Edith And The Kingpin," and "The Jungle Line"
Originally released in 1975, The Hissing Of Summer Lawns is a stunning work of art conceived as a graphic, musical, and lyrical whole. Leaning even more towards the jazz idiom than Joni Mitchell's previous release, Court and Spark, the collection features the introduction of the great Burundi on drums and is highlighted by the excellent guitar playing of frequent session collaborators Larry Carlton and Robben Ford. As adventurous and lyrically deep as anything Joni Mitchell has ever done, the 1974 album remains a classic.
A singer, composer and lyricist of exceptional talent and unmatched influence, Joni Mitchell has crafted an extraordinary body of work spanning more than 40 years and is widely regarded as one of the brightest musical lights of recent generations. Fans, fellow musicians and critics have delighted in an ever-evolving creative journey, with songs both universal and profoundly personal. Her music has become a standard to which others are compared and which many aspire to copy, but its inventiveness and ineffable spirit make it decidedly her own. Explore the musical magnificence of Joni Mitchell.
