Joni Mitchell Woman of Heart and Mind: A Life Story
DVD Release Date: June 3, 2003
|Reviewer: from East Coast |
If you aren't a fan of Joni Mitchell, you will be after watching this. Chronicles her life from childhood, early roots of her music, to present time. It is wonderful to see her interviewed about her work and to see her perform the songs. I saw the DVD version which has extra shots of concert clips - do not know if the VHS version has this.
Interviews with her contemporaries such as Graham Nash, David Crosby, provide additional insight into her creative process.
Mitchell diiscusses her lyrics and metaphors.....as an avid fan of hers all these years, I gained even more insight into her personae and if possible.....appreciate her even more.
