Jonathan Cohen, N.Y.
Bjork, Prince, James Taylor and Elvis Costello are among the artists
who have recorded covers for “A Tribute to Joni Mitchell,” due in the
spring via Nonesuch. The 11-track set also boasts contributions from
Sarah McLachlan, k.d. lang, Emmylou Harris and Sufjan Stevens.

In related news, Billboard.com has learned that Mitchell has been
recording original material at a Los Angeles studio in recent weeks.
It is unknown in what form she plans to release the music; she
angrily announced she was quitting the music business in 2002 after
her last album, “Travelogue.”

“A Tribute to Joni Mitchell” comes concurrently with 429
Records’ “Endless Highway: A Tribute to the Band,” due Jan. 30. That
projects boasts covers from Death Cab For Cutie, My Morning Jacket,
Jack Johnson and Widespread Panic, among others.

Here is the track list for “A Tribute to Joni Mitchell”:

“Free Man in Paris,” Sufjan Stevens
“Boho Dance,” Bjork
“Dreamland,” Caetano Veloso
“Don’t Interrupt the Sorrow,” Brad Mehldau
“For the Roses,” Cassandra Wilson
“A Case of U,” Prince
“Blue,” Sarah McLachlan
“Ladies of the Canyon,” Annie Lennox
“Magdalena Laundries,” Emmylou Harris
“Edith and the Kingpin,” Elvis Costello
“Help Me,” k.d. lang
“River,” James Taylor

Looks like some strange artist and song choices for sure. Here’s one of my favorite Joni Mitchell songs, A Case Of You. A version by Prince(not the tribute version) , a rare Tori Amos B-Side version, and the original Joni version.

So, while I was surfing the web in search of a Joni Mitchell picture for this post I happened across these lovely songs by a girl named Morgan Ryan. I thought I’d share them here with you all. Enjoy. Stop by her myspace page to hear some more.

Prince fans, fire up that Little Red Corvette and head for Las Vegas: the purple one will be performing there every weekend starting Nov. 10.
The diminutive rocker will play Friday- and Saturday-night shows at 3121, a nightclub inside the Rio hotel, according to a Wednesday news release by P R Plus, a Vegas firm representing the club.
Tickets for the 21-and-over shows cost $125 and will be available beginning Nov. 2.
Prince will also host Wednesday-night concerts at the club by other artists.
The Grammy winner, who once changed his name to an unpronounceable symbol, will perform at the club indefinitely, a P R Plus representative said.
Prince joins a growing contingent of songsters who have settled in Vegas hotels as regularly featured acts, including Celine Dion, Elton John, Barry Manilow and Toni Braxton.
