§ Comment “Mitchell, Joni (b. Roberta Joan Anderson, 1943-____) singer, songwriter; born in Fort McLeod, Alberta, Canada. Emerging in the 1960s as one of the more sensitive of the folk/ballad singers, she wrote most of her own lyrics and music and had several hits such as ‘The Circle Game’ (1966), ‘Both Sides Now’ (1967), and ‘Woodstock’ (1969). During the 1970s she toured and produced best-selling albums such as Ladies of the Canyon (1971), and began adding pop and jazz elements to her style. This new phase was not well received, and in the 1980s she went back to her original style of poetic-personal songs, which by then had influenced a whole generation of women singers.”—Biography.com, http://www.biography.com, accessed May 19, 1998.
