Joni Mitchell Archives, Vol. 3: The Asylum Years (1972-1975) is the latest entry in Rhino’s ongoing, Grammy-winning series exploring the vast untapped archives of rare Joni Mitchell recordings — a project guided intimately by Mitchell’s own vision and personal touch.

The collection begins with an early cut of “Cold Blue Steel And Sweet Fire”, one of two songs (along with “For The Roses”) test-driven during a visit to a Graham Nash David Crosby recording session at Wally Heider’s in Hollywood.

From there, listeners are treated to early demos and alternate versions from sessions from For The RosesCourt and Spark, and The Hissing Of Summer Lawns; historic live show recordings, including the entirety of Mitchell’s triumphant 1972 return to Carnegie Hall and a definitive gig with her Court And Spark backing band Tom Scott and the L.A. Express; and tracks from sessions cut alongside James Taylor, Graham Nash, and Neil Young.

4LP Vinyl Box Set: - 4LP with an 40-page accompanying book featuring photos and a conversation about this period between Joni Mitchell and longtime friend Cameron Crowe.
