'Early Joni - 1963' is Joni's earliest-known previously unreleased recording where a 19-year-old Mitchell performs at CFQC AM, a radio station in her hometown of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. The album will be released as a single LP on 180-gram vinyl. Like several of Mitchell's past albums, the cover for 'Early Joni' features a self-portrait and marks her first new art in many years. Barry Bowman was working as a DJ at radio station CFQC in 1963 and provides the notes for 'Early Joni'.


Listening to this album was like turning back the clock, it must have been wonderful to see and hear her at the beginning of her career. It is hard to pinpoint exactly what makes a star but she clearly had it. The story surrounding the discovery of this original recording session is equally wonderful. It was nice to hear that Joni was especially grateful and gracious in receiving these first tapes and took it upon herself to share them with her fans.
