June 22 marks the 50th anniversary of Joni Mitchell’s self-produced Blue album. Recently ranked third in Rolling Stone’s list of 500 Greatest Albums of All Time this 1971 acoustic classic is well-regarded for its use of alternative guitar tunings and was inspired by the Canadian star’s troubled relationships with fellow singer-songwriters Graham Nash and James Taylor.

In order to celebrate 50 years since the album’s original release Rhino has unveiled a digital EP entitled Blue 50 (Demos & Outtakes). It contains five previously unreleased recordings that are due to feature on Mitchell’s forthcoming compilation, Joni Mitchell Archives Vol. 2: The Reprise Years (1968-1971). These rare tracks - comprising alternative versions of A Case Of You, California, Hunter, River, and Urge For Going - are a small taster of the Archives box-set of five CDs due for release on October 29.

The same compilation will be available exclusively from Joni Mitchell’s website as a limited edition ten-LP vinyl set and is intended to compliment The Reprise Albums (1968-1971). This four-CD set of definitively remastered albums due for release on July 2 includes Blue as well as 1968’s Song To A Seagull, 1969’s Clouds, and 1970’s Ladies Of The Canyon.

  2. Before the morons invade the comments, let me say thank you. I’m a fan of Joni’s work and its nice to see a whole comp of live versions from Blue. Much appreciated

    By Richard on Dec 23, 2021

  3. In the summer of 1971, “Blue” dominated the turntables in my world. The most accomplished group of songs written by a woman to that point.

    And with the possible exception of Joni’s “Hejira” perhaps never surpassed.

    Thanks for this memento of glory.

    By Frederick Miller on Dec 23, 2021

  12. A hoagie is something you wish you had but don’t . Jacko!

    By T J on Dec 23, 2021

  13. Anti , Derrick, Nelson , I was right Daunte Wright who was shot while resisting arrest was in fact a halfbreed . Black ape dad , and white mudshark mom . Big surprise ehh. Yet he is referring to as black , totally ignoring his Caucasian half . If you have just a little black ape in you , that makes you black . That’s what the agenda is . Eliminate the white race .

    By HHH on Dec 23, 2021

  14. Obama is always referred to as the black president, not the biracial president, even though he was raised by his white mother and her side of the family and barely knew his ape dad and that side . He still identifies as Black

    By HHH on Dec 23, 2021

  15. Just one nigger in your family from way back makes you one too hhh .

    By Nelson on Dec 23, 2021

    By swappers on Dec 23, 2021

  22. Can I be first swappers?

    By Mark on Dec 23, 2021

    By HHH on Dec 23, 2021

  24. Awesome!

    By Blair Frodelius on Dec 23, 2021

  25. Amen swappers. Can I be next after Mark?

    By DD on Dec 23, 2021

  27. since your offering swappers, would love to dic you

    By The AntiChrist on Dec 23, 2021

  28. Joni had the voice and the face of an angel. Most important, she was a very talented sonwriter and gave us all those beautiful songs. Now -alas- she is old and sick and can’t perform anymore, but the world has her songs. Thank you Joni!

    By Theo on Dec 23, 2021

  32. I Blue a lot of guys.

    By Derrick on Dec 24, 2021

  33. So did my mom, Derrick. A lot more than you ever will.

    By DD on Dec 24, 2021

  34. Anti’s corpse Blue me, after I fucked it’s ass.

    By Derrick on Dec 24, 2021

  35. Kim Potter guilty on both counts. Justice is served.

    By Mark on Dec 24, 2021

  36. I agree. Taser Taser Taser. Get under my balls swappers. I put some mistletoe there for you to kiss. Merry Xmas

    By The AntiChrist on Dec 24, 2021

  37. The defense had her dress like a frumpy housewife. The day of the killing she was a reckless police officer.

    By Mark on Dec 24, 2021

  38. Anti , Derrick, Nelson , pretty soon no one will want to be a cop . First Derek Chauvin and now this injustice. Kim Potter should never have been a street cop , not only that , she was a 26 year veteran, the other officer at the scene was a trainee. What the fuck ? We need brave cops to stick it to the apes by giving them street justice , but a trainee and his incompetent female superior officer ? Cops need better training and the fact that this woman was on the force for 26 years speaks volumes as to the poor training they receive.

    By HHH on Dec 24, 2021

  39. Rumor has it The AntiChrist gots a Lil Un

    By U L E on Dec 24, 2021

  40. Wrights mudshark mom was being interviewed after the verdict, surrounded by her black ape extended family . Wright was no saint , had a kid out of wedlock, had numerous warrants and was accused of sxual assault, and battery among other typical ape crimes , plus he was resisting arrest , same as gorilla George Floyd, Rayshard Brooks , Amuad Aubrey etc . Cops can’t be cops anymore. The apes are going to control rye jungle .

    By HHH on Dec 24, 2021

  41. My mom’s a mudshark too. My mom was no saint, had several kids out of wedlock, had numerous warrants and was accused of sxual assault on minors, shoplifting, public intoxication, indecent exposure, and battery among other typical ape crimes.

    By HHH on Dec 24, 2021

  42. Potter cried like a little bitch on the stands , also in the streets . As stupid as she was , she still did society a favor by plugging that little ape . Show some pride woman , stop acting like a whiny little bitch , Derek Chauvin didnt act that way . He showed some dignity and pride while placing the knee of justice on ape floyd. Potter should have done the same . I repeat, women shouldn’t be street cops . Or soldiers. It’s that women’s lib bullshit that’s been going on for 50 plus years.

    By HHH on Dec 24, 2021

  43. hhh , potter was in over her head , but shouldn’t get jail time . I’d prosecute the powers that be who had that cunt in a police uniform for 25 years , as well as having a trainee as her partner. Their the ones who’s heads should roll . That said another dead nigger is a good thing .

    By Nelson on Dec 24, 2021

  44. Like you said , wait till the cops all quit and the niggers completely take the streets . Every city will be like Chicago.

    By Nelson on Dec 24, 2021

  45. Last four twernt me , more fakes

    By U L E on Dec 24, 2021

  46. Twernt me above , nuther fake

    By U L E on Dec 24, 2021

  47. My mom’s a mudshark too. Mom was no saint, had several kids out of wedlock, had numerous warrants and was accused of sxual assault on minors, shoplifting, public intoxication, indecent exposure, and battery among other typical ape crimes.

    By HHH on Dec 24, 2021

  48. Twernt me on last one nuther fake

    By U L E on Dec 24, 2021

  49. Mom was a crack addict and gave 10.00 blowjobs. She was so desparate for her next hit of crack

    By HHH on Dec 24, 2021

  50. My mom did the same thing. I think they knew each other. They both used to work the truckstop on I95 in Richmond Virgina. Small world HHH. That explains why I am the loser Ive become

    By Derrick on Dec 24, 2021

  51. Even on Xmas Eve these trolls and animals still talk the same filth and racist crap. The gooks in Malaysia must think all us Americans are muscleheads

    By Mark on Dec 24, 2021

  52. Twernt me on any of the posts here . All fakes

    By U L E on Dec 24, 2021

  53. Twas me on all the comments. I dont know who I am any more since I post under aliases Im HHH,DD,Derriere,swappers,Mark,Corey TJ Nelson AntiChrist

    By U L E on Dec 24, 2021

  54. Fuck all of you GOOK bastards. All you GOOKS suck American coc. All Gooks are pedophiles and love getting fucked up in the ass

    By swappers on Dec 24, 2021

  55. I agree with my lover swappers. I hate all slopeheads, chinks, gooks and slanty eyed bastards

    By Mark on Dec 24, 2021

  56. Hebrew Mark is working overtime with his childish name stealing.

    By HHH on Dec 25, 2021

  57. Mark , who gets a break just because it’s Christmas? Kim Potter was unjustly found guilty just days before Christmas, denied bail , thrown in prison and will miss Christmas with her husband and two sons . All for ridding the planet of another black ape / mixed breed mongrel street thug

    By HHH on Dec 25, 2021

  58. Black ape Muslim prosecutor Keith Ellison , an anti American socialist who oversaw the trial lauded the verdict. The mostly white jury was probably terrified of an ape uprising if they let Potter walk . I’m sure they were worried about their safety as well as their families. Same with the Chauvin jury . Find them innocent as they should have and the apes burn cities across America. Bobblehead Al Sharpton and Benjamin Kronk would be in heaven with their profitable race baiting .

    By HHH on Dec 25, 2021

  59. Hey HHH. The gook judge showed her no mercy. Figured she was a flight risk. Dont know who the name stealer is its gots to between U_L_E or Mark

    By The AntiChrist on Dec 25, 2021

  60. You also gots that other jackoff corey m, pathetic loser

    By The AntiChrist on Dec 25, 2021

  61. The only reason Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty was because the people he shot were white . Had they been black apes , Kyle would have been found guilty and would currently be in prison being sodomized by the apes .

    By HHH on Dec 25, 2021

  62. u got that right. nice ripe white pudgy fat ass. the niggers would of been all over that

    By The AntiChrist on Dec 25, 2021

  63. Sad to say that’s probably happening right now to hero cop Chauvin , Kim Potter can expect to get assaulted in prison by the ape guards

    By HHH on Dec 25, 2021

  64. Kim Potter shouldn’t have been a street cop , she panicked when the pressure was on like most females , but she shouldn’t go to prison. 26 years of service in law enforcement and this is what she gets . 15 years for getting rid of a mongrel thug . Same with Chauvin as well as those brave citizens in the Aubrey case . They should all get medals instead of prison . Who the fuck wants to be a cop after this ?

    By HHH on Dec 25, 2021

  65. Why should Kim Potter get to go home for the holidays? Daunted Wright can’t. There is such a disregard for human life displayed by people who take glee in the shooting deaths of unarmed suspects by police officers.

    By Mark on Dec 25, 2021

  66. If a BLM protectors meant to fire a warning shot but hit someone by mistake, you’d have to find him not guilty by your way of thinking.

    By Mark on Dec 25, 2021

  67. Rumor has it Mark is swappers’ beard

    By U L E on Dec 25, 2021

  68. What is a beard?

    By Jocko on Dec 25, 2021

  69. You really are a dumbass Jerko. A beard is a a woman who accompanies a homo man to give the impression that he is hetero. We have lots of gays in here that pretend to be hetero but are really homo. TJ, Derriere, Nelson, Corey M, swappers, U-L_E, DD, Ron Scar Rad

    By HHH on Dec 25, 2021

  70. Derriere is my beard. He loves to toss my salad. Im not explaning that one Jerko, look that one up. slang toss my salad

    By HHH on Dec 25, 2021

  71. Twernt me above . HHH and I are engaged

    By U L E on Dec 25, 2021

  72. Happy Kwanza to all my fellow brothers & sisters!

    By T J on Dec 25, 2021

  73. Happy Kwanza to all my nigger friends

    By Mark on Dec 25, 2021

  74. Even Jeffery Epstein friend and frequent Epstein island guest , Child rapist Alan Dershowitz, a legal scholar said that the Potter verdict was a travesty. Dershowitz is no conservative by any means . He feels as I do , that there is now a war on police by the far left . Years ago Potter alone with Chauvin would have been heros . It’s going to be harder now to find people who want to be cops . Wait until the hip hop thugs start going to the liberal socialists gated communities.

    By HHH on Dec 25, 2021

  75. Antichrist, you’re right . The judge in the potter trial was a slant eyed slope . She’s probably another liberal socialist . We need more male white judges . She wanted to stick it to Potter and the police.

    By HHH on Dec 25, 2021

  76. Amazing how so many jerks who comment on this site are so proud of their ignorance. Hopefully the pandemic will thin that herd.

    By Mike on Dec 26, 2021

  77. Mark sounds like another liberal cop hating socialist who loves the squad .

    By HHH on Dec 26, 2021

  78. Did I say mark ? I mean mike , although it probably is Hebrew Mark . Sounds just like him

    By HHH on Dec 26, 2021

  79. Mike sounds like another cop hating liberal socialist who thinks Chauvin and Potter should rot in prison for getting rid of two black ape street thugs

    By HHH on Dec 26, 2021

  80. He’s probably fine with CRT being taught in schools , loves the squad and watches Don Lemonhead every night on CNN as well as Joy Reid on msnbc

    By HHH on Dec 26, 2021

  81. Mr HHH , Mike needs to get what Joe PESCHI got in Casino

    By T J on Dec 26, 2021

  82. Or what Carlo got by Clemenza in The Godfather

    By T J on Dec 26, 2021
