LOVE HAS MANY FACES - On vinyl for the first time as a limited-edition, 8LP boxed set. Limited to 5,000 individually numbered copies, the set is presented in a hard-bound deluxe folio package. It includes 53 songs on eight 180-gram LPs. Etchings of Mitchell’s artwork are featured on four individual album sides, each one signifying the end of an act in the ballet.
It truly is an artist-curated collection. Mitchell selected the material from 40 years of recording. She designed the package, which includes a book containing 53 lyrical poems, six paintings, and an autobiographical text illuminating her recording process. It is funny, mystical, and informative.
Mitchell organized the music into different thematic acts, which allowed her songs to interact with one another in a whole new way. The process, she says, was a lot like making a film. “I had forty years of footage to review. Then, suddenly, scenes began to hook up. Then series began to form. Instead of it being an emotional roller coaster ride as it was before—crammed into one disc—themes began to develop. Moods sustained. I was getting there…When this long editorial process (two years) finally came to rest, I had four ballets or a four-act ballet—a quartet. I also had a box set.”
From Norman Seeff:
"Beginning in 1972 and for a period of 15 years, I photographed Joni twelve times and filmed four of our Sessions. There are certain artists who by their nature, engage the innate powers and strengths of human creativity and function at the higher reaches of human potential.
In my long-term collaboration with Joni, I was able to experience those defining qualities, demonstrated and actively expressed in our Sessions. Joni brought with her the innate characteristics of those who are committed to their true calling.
In revisiting my archives, and uncovering the narrative arc of our journey together, came a deeper appreciation of the integrity of Joni as the Boundary Dweller artist who touched me deeply with her unwavering passion and courage to explore beyond the boundaries...in search of the new and the more."
