Molti particolari poco o pochissimo noti finora emergono anche dalla pubblicazione di Morning Glory on the Vine: Early Songs and Drawings, l'album di canzoni poesie e illustrazioni prodotto artigianalmente a inizio anni Settanta - epoca Blue - direttamente da Joni Mitchell e dato in dono allora a una ristretta cerchia di conoscenti e amici. Lo dà alle stampe in edizione ampliata Canongate, a Edimburgo.

Between the beautiful line art, felt-tip pen drawings, paintings, and handwritten lyrics to legendary and unheard songs alike, Morning Glory on the Vine: Early Songs and Drawings offers treasure after treasure. It seems miraculous that Joni - who once so sternly objected even a greatest hits album - has chosen to reappraise her work in this way, but as she writes in her foreword, "Work is meant to be seen, or heard, as the case may be." How fortunate we are that fans and new initiates alike are now able to enjoy this unprecedented look into Joni Mitchell's most intimate work.
