    Joni is a Canadian treasure but the blackface probably wasn't the wisest choice.

      Why they don't use the word "masterpiece" I'll never understand. This is her Blonde on Blonde. There's a reason they had to make this a double album. Too much good material. Look at the players. Listen to the record. How Allmusic.com gave this 2 stars or however many they gave it is beyond me. Its brilliant. From Court and Spark through Don Juan are all must own. Some of the songs on Mingus are a little esoteric for my tastes but by Shadows and Light, her live album summing up this period is amazing. It features the band on these albums before she gets into her difficult 80's material. The 70's were golden for Joni. She really couldn't do any wrong, and this album is a masterpiece.

        Fantastic record. I lucked into a NM, seemingly unplayed record here for $6, orig press also. Wowza.

          I would agree with spp1680. This album isn’t nearly as bad as critics paint it to be. I came into this record with no expectations because of the fact it’s been dogged many times. Little did I know, it’d become one of my favorite Joni albums. Granted, it’s not as great as other albums she’s released, but that’s not to say it’s horrible or bad. Not even. It’s an incredible release and Joni proved to be an enigma among her contemporaries for taking huge artistic risks and finally reaching full jazz influence by the time Mingus came around.

          Jericho, seen previously on her Miles of Aisles live album, is finally given the album treatment with Jaco and Co. And Jaco’s Incredible and spellbinding bass playing gives this song even more buoyancy and gives it an even deeper, darker depth than the Miles of Aisles version with the LA Express.

          Also another great one, Talk To Me. Which is comprised predominately of Joni on acoustic and Jaco on bass, having almost a showdown of sorts to see who could get deeper into the guts of the song and it’s spine chilling.

          Otis and Marlena is another one of my favorites with instrumentation that harkens to a 70s road trip along the desert with the windows and/or top down.

          Joni experiments more with world music and African/Latin influences as she did on The Jungle Line two years prior. The Tenth World is predominately an instrumental, a prelude to Dreamland.

          Overall... it’s aged decently well forty years later. I love it! Would love to see a 180G reissue!
