BBC Radio 6 Music broadcast: 26th December 2016
Joni Mitchell continues to talk to Amanda Ghost. In the second episode, Joni considers the effect her music has had on the world, explains why she dropped out of the hit-making rat race and what it was that brought her back to songwriting and recording as a form of creative expression.
She discusses her most revered album, Blue, and Amanda describes the effect the record had on her and the millions of other listeners who identified with its poignant sentiments. There's also music from other work in the 70s, including For The Roses, Court and Spark, and US hits such as You Turn Me On I'm A Radio, which, Joni says, she wrote as a joke.
First broadcast in 2007.
