After an era-defining masterpiece with Blue, Joni Mitchell immediately returned with an
extraordinary run of albums – For The Roses, Court and Spark and The Hissing Of Summer Lawns – all of which pulled her far away from her folk roots and expanded her confessional writing into something tougher and more expansive. Working with LA Express, a five-piece group of skilled and versatile fusion players, Mitchell infused her music with rich musical textures, complex string and horn arrangements, and an overt jazz influence. Moreover, her artistic vision perfectly reflected the era in both the light and the dark of that period. Joni’s performance that cold night at the Boston Music Hall on February 19, 1976 was energetic, soulful and intimate, ranging from sweet solos to
big arrangements with the LA Express, and with plenty of new material mixed in with older favourites.

Rox Vox revisits this enduring performance with a fully restored and professionally remastered original WBCN-FM broadcast. Presented with background notes and timeline photos.
