Bjork, Lang, McLachlan worship at the folk altar

The CD A Tribute to Joni Mitchell will be released this spring and will include covers of Mitchell tunes by some of our favorite people. Check out this track list:

  • Sufjan Stevens – ‘Free Man In Paris’
  • Bjork – ‘The Boho Dance’
  • Caetano Veloso – ‘Dreamland’
  • Brad Mehldau – ‘Don’t Interrupt The Sorrow’
  • Cassandra Wilson – ‘For The Roses’
  • Prince – ‘A Case Of You’
  • Sarah McLachlan – ‘Blue’
  • Annie Lennox – ‘Ladies Of The Canyon’
  • Emmylou Harris – ‘Magdalene Laundries’
  • Elvis Costello – ‘Edith And The Kingpin’
  • k.d. Lang – ‘Help Me’
  • James Taylor – ‘River’

They could have easily made a triple CD with all of the fabulous Mitchell material (and talented Mitchell followers who would have surely loved to cover her) to choose from, but this looks like a strong collection. McLachlan recently covered “River” (one of my faves) on her CD Wintersong.
