Background: Released in 1972, For the Roses was the fifth album by Joni Mitchell.
The album reached #11 on the U.S. album chart.
On For the Roses, Joni Mitchell began to explore jazz and other influences in earnest. As one might expect from a transitional album, there is a lot of stylistic ground explored, including straight folk selections using guitar (“For the Roses”) and piano (“Banquet,” “See You Sometime,” “Lesson in Survival”) overtly jazzy numbers (“Barangrill,” “Cold Blue Steel and Sweet Fire,” and hybrids that cross the two “Let the Wind Carry Me,” “Electricity,” “Woman of Heart and Mind,” “Judgment of the Moon and Stars”). “Blonde in the Bleachers” grafts a rock & roll band coda onto a piano-based singer/songwriter main body. … More than a bridge between great albums, this excellent disc is a top-notch listen in its own right.
