When I was 13, though, I got into Joni Mitchell with my dad, and played it to pieces. I loved Don Juan's Reckless Daughter but Hejira was the one. It was more acoustic. I've always found guitars a bit difficult because my dad played since I was very little, and he was a bit of a Clapton and Hendrix kind of guitarist, and I've always been critical of that, but I loved her guitar sound very much, although it's very hard to say why.

 

With hindsight, she was one of the first women I heard who weren't completely stupid. She had her own air of style and independence, whereas a lot of women just wanted to play men's music. I wasn't so much into her voice, more that she had her own world, with her own elements. You definitely knew that it was Joni the second you heard her. It was very strong, but very feminine, you know? It was natural and earthy but modern as well.

 

She was never my role model, though: I don't think any singer was, to be honest. Instruments influenced me more than singers, like brass and stuff. You might start puking when I say it but I never had the ambition to be a singer, I always wanted to make good music. It's like learning shorthand writing. It's not so much that you're into it, but it makes it easier to write anything. That's why I sing.

 

She has genuine sexual abandon, whereas a lot of sex symbols are actually frigid.

Le site officiel du projet présente une page comportant un lecteur multimédia permettant d'écouter les deux versions de la chanson ainsi qu'un entretien avec Björk

 

It is hard to even begin to talk about what Joni Mitchell means to me.

 

The first record of hers I discovered was Don Juan’s Daughter; I was around fourteen, fifteen and I knew it by heart (still do, every instrument, every noise, every word). I would love to cover sometime some of the songs of that album but they might be too sacred for me, too immaculate for me even to be able to suggest that they might be done in any other way. At that age my love for her was very intuitive and limitless with total ignorance of her meaning in North America in the hippy era, for example. I guess now later when I am a bit more knowledgeable about foreigners and history and context and such things I understand better her importance to the world and why she made such an impact on a teenage girl in Iceland (who had never left the island at that point, actually).

 

In a music-world ruled by males she continues to be the only one (except perhaps Kate Bush) who created an all-female universe with intuition, wisdom, intelligence, craftsmanship, and courage: had the guts to set up a world driven by extreme female emotion, almost any other female out there is fronting an already male-made sensibility. Joni got a group of musicians to play with her but they were following a female heart. This might not be the place to go into details; I could write pages about it...for example her chord progression is very chromatic and grows like a plant, unpredictable and growing in all different directions (as you all know, she tuned her guitar strings very differently than others)...not the white Christian male c-g-f rock, boy-scout chords that are clean and square and deny the existence of nature. And there is no space to even go into her lyrics here, which are heavyweight literature, especially in the context of popular music.

 

And as I grow older I am forced to admit a very, very sad truth (something I promised I would never do, but...): we are living in a rock white male world and because of this Joni is being ignored while someone like Bob Dylan for instance has become a saint.

 

This album has gathered musicians together to show a little of their love and respect for Joni Mitchell.

 

Let’s hope it takes part in inspiring the respect she deserves.
