Don Juan's Reckless Daughter is a 1977 double album by Canadian singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell. It is unusual for its experimental style, expanding even further on the jazz fusion sound of Mitchell's Hejira from the year before. Mitchell has stated that, close to completing her contract with Asylum Records, she allowed this album to be looser than anything she'd done previously.

Don Juan's Reckless Daughter is a 1977 double album by Canadian singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell. And if you're writing free consciousness – which I do once in a while just to remind myself that I can, you know, because I'm fitting little pieces of this puzzle together – the end result must flow as if it was spoken for the first time.

All lyrics from Don Juan's Reckless Daughter album, popular Joni Mitchell songs with tracklist and information about album. Label Asylum Records.

The year Mitchell issued Blue, an album that would be a landmark in any artist's career, Rolling Stone named her "Old Lady of the Year," a dismissal effectively saying her import was as a girlfriend or muse to the men around her more than as an artist in her own right. Worse still, they called her "Queen of El Lay," and offered a diagram of her supposed affairs and conquests. Inspired by the rhythms of Brazilian music, Mitchell issued the experimental double-album Don Juan's Reckless Daughter in '77. Her experiments went further than just musical; she appears in brownface and an afro wig as a man on the cover.

I've gotta add my two sense here to combat the unrealistic two star review given to this album by William Ruhlmann of AllMusic. I'll never understand why critics never seem to get it when an artist feels the need to try something new which in my opinion what was happening with Joni on Don Juan's Reckless Daughter. Starting with her previous album The Hissing of Summer Lawns Joni started going in a much more fusion direction for lack of a better word. This album which came out in 77 has her new sound in full bloom. Joni contracted some of Jazz fusion's pioneers to back her on this album, Jaco Pastorius, Wayne Shorter and drummer Peter Erskine who were all members of the ground breaking fusion band Weather Report at this time. In my opinion the strongest tunes are the first five tunes. Also track 8 the title track is also pretty good. When you listen to these tunes you can't help but notice the beautiful fret less bass lines of Jaco Pastorius which offer most of the melodic content, the bass is also mixed the most promeniant of all the instruments on most of the tracks. I'll talk about a few of my favorite musical moments before I conclude this review. Track 1 Cotton Avenue Overture is a bluesy piece that's pretty sparse with only acoustic guitar, several tracks of overdubbed bass that sounds like a bass choir. For all the bass players and bass lovers reading this take note, this tune and most of this album features Jaco doing lots of neat things thought totally unnatural for a bassist of the time. Track 2 is a great tune with a great melody played again by Jaco's bass and he even famously imitates a chicken squawking. Track 3 Jericho is probably my favorite tune on the album, a beautiful ballad with great lyrics and beautiful playing. My only problem with the song is its too short. I highly recommend this to fans of fusion and singer songwriter stuff. I also recommend Joni's other albums that feature Jaco Hejira, The live Shadows and Light & Mingus. They're all killer!

I love this album. It conforms to nothing. It's the work of a mature and wonderful artist who needs to prove nothing. It's free and it gos where ever it wants to. It must have been a pure joy for Joni to make.

"Don Juan's Reckless Daughter" is a gorgeously wrought album, a beautiful, affecting fusion of Mitchell's evocative storytelling and experimental jazz-rock fusion, the fruitful culmination of her turn towards experimental structures and jazzier sounds. This is a lushly orchestrated record full of wonderful textures, colors, and moods and "Paprika Plains" stands as one of Mitchell's major artistic achievements. The song is symphonic, telling a story over multiple, interconnected parts. If you find yourself not liking this record compared to some of Mitchell's earlier work, try listening to it again. You'll find that this is the Joni Mitchell album you need to hear, even if it wasn't what you were expecting or even, necessarily, what you wanted.

Stunning! One of her very very best... William Ruhlmann should sit down and listen to this more than once if he even did that. A Masterpiece!
  • Thetalas
Any album that features as astonishingly epic a piece as « Paprika Plains » deserves at least four stars. Stunning. That cut is worth the price of the album.
  • TheFresh
Two stars? No saben nada de música? o que.... the quality of this album is beyond it's time
  • Umdwyn
A pure joy from beginning to end....Like a beautiful Abstract painting it speaks to you from some dreamlike place....Close your eyes.....let those Paprika Plains surround are there.
  • Elizabeth
1975 through 1979 was an awesome period for Joni's music. She abandoned Pop and let the world hear what she heard. Awesome recordings and she cut a path for artists that followed. You can hear it if you listen to this one and then listen to Nora Jones, Regina Specktor, Imogen Heap and St.Vincent to name a few.
  • Deodorant for your language
Even her less than great albums are better than most others best recordings. I give it four stars. Somewhat uneven but the singing and instrumentation our beautiful. Perhaps a slight editing down to 40-45 minutes would have made it a better album.
  • Gavirgas
My copy of this record is a great listen. It's certainly not for the feint of heart, it has some challenging parts but that's the allure. Joni doesn't leave too many paint cans unopened on this one. A solid piece of art.
