Hejira

Another blast from the past: this album cover featured in the blog in 2007, one year before the re-start, and I never re-posted it until now. I quote the original text: "I was a painter first," Joni Mitchell once said. "I trained as a commercial artist, as well as a fine artist. So when I began to record albums, I thought album art was a great way to keep both careers alive." Hejira is probably her most beautiful cover. The cover art was put together from a number of different photos, including a studio portrait by Norman Seeff and shots by Joel Bernstein taken on a frozen lake.
