Both Sides Now: Joni Mitchell's Hits and Misses
Barney Hoskyns, MOJO, November 1996
• First-ever attempt to compile a "best of" the former Roberta Joan Anderson.
• Simultaneously released albums of "hits" - songs successful either for Mitchell or for other artists – and "misses" – songs she deemed "commercially viable" but which were never released as singles.
• Includes Mitchell’s own version of 'Urge For Going', never before released on an album.
• No liner notes supplied. Says Mitchell, "I tried, but I couldn’t get the right amount of levity - there was too much pain involved."
