Happy 70th birthday, Joni Mitchell

It may be Joni Mitchell’s 70th birthday, but she’s the one giving gifts.

Early Thursday, the musician released a never-before-seen promotional clip for her “Hits” and “Misses” albums, two compilations released on the same day in 1996.

During the 30-minute trip down memory lane, Mitchell explains that she was completely against the idea of having a greatest hits album since she believed most of her work “would be categorized as misses.” Having a “Hits” and a “Misses” was her compromise, and a chance to reintroduce some songs that may have originally been overlooked.
