Joni Mitchell has announced The Asylum Albums (1972-1975), the next installment in her archival series. Set for release on September 23, it features remasted versions of For the Roses (1972), Court And Spark (1974), the double live album Miles Of Aisles (1974), and The Hissing of Summer Lawns (1975). All four albums were remastered by Bernie Grundman. Check out a remastered version of For the Roses‘ ‘You Turn Me on I’m a Radio’ below.
The Asylum Albums (1972-1975), the third installment in Mitchell’s archival series, follows Vol. 1: The Early Years (1963-1967) and Vol. 2: The Reprise Years (1968-1971). Joni Mitchell left Reprise Records to join Asylum Records in 1972. The transition led her to incorporate more jazz elements into her songwriting, culminating in 1979 with Mingus, her collaboration with jazz legend Charles Mingus. It was her last studio album for Asylum.
Last weekend, Mitchell gave a surprise performance at the Newport Folk Festival, joining Brandi Carlile for a set of classics in her first full set-length appearance in over 20 years.
