An massive five-CD Joni Mitchell box set featuring almost six hours of previously unreleased recordings by the acclaimed singer/songwriter spanning from 1963 through 1967 will arrive next month!

Joni Mitchell Archives Vol. 1 comes out October 30th and will be the first in a series of planned compilations that will present previously unheard and rare Mitchell recordings like demos, live performances, and recordings from radio and TV appearances.

The box set also contains a 40-page booklet with largly unseen photos from Mitchell’s personal archives, plus new liner notes featuring conversations between Joni and music journalist/filmmaker Cameron Crowe.
