There are several smart collections of Joni Mitchell’s music where the chosen material reflects certain themes and has nothing to do with the music’s commercial impact. Ever since Mitchell abandoned the intimate acoustic guitar and piano-based personal confessions of her youth, she has bravely gone into writings that aren't always as immediately revealing. The songs here are culled from five albums made between 1985 and 1998 and stress her social consciousness, with music that includes Willie Nelson guesting on “Cool Water” and Thomas Dolby on “Fiction.” Underrated tracks such as “The Beat of Black Wings” and “Impossible Dreamer” (with Wayne Shorter) receive their just due.
