In the United States alone, Mitchell has accrued record sales in excess of 10 million copies, 7 million of which have been certified by the RIAA . In the UK, she has certified album sales in excess of million copies.

The Hissing of Summer Lawns , Mitchell’s brilliant, ambitious 1975 LP, saw the songwriter further exploring jazz- and Latin American–influenced textures and rhythms. Not particularly well-received at first, the album would go on to have several high-profile fans, including Prince (a decade after its release, he called it “the last album I loved all the way through”) and Morrissey (“it was the first album that completely captivated me”). The unreleased demos Mitchell made for The Hissing strip back some of the album’s thick layers, linking the songs more closely (sonically at least) to Blue and For the Roses . While the finished product is certainly unbeatable, these intimate recordings give us a glimpse of the painstaking approach Mitchell takes to perfecting her art. “How does a person create a song?” she said in Joni Mitchell: In Her Own Words . “A lot of it is being open, I think, to encounter and to, in a way, be in touch with the miraculous.”

This is the fourth Joni Mitchell album I purchased back in the early 1970's. This album gave new meaning to the word "blue" ... she allowed us to touch her soul thru her music and so many of us connected to her because of that. She once said that "love is touching souls...surely you've touched mine." Thank you Joni, for allowing us to touch your soul... because surely you've touched mine.   [ed.]  [ed.]

In 2007 she released Shine , her first album of new songs in almost a decade. Politically charged and environmentally conscious, the album was a Billboard success and was Mitchell's nineteenth and final studio album.

In 2012, commissioned a continuation of the project from long-time Joni fan Mark Scott. It was decided that, due to all the new information that had come to light in the past decade and a half, Mark would start again at the beginning with a new biography series.
