Don Juan’s Reckless Daughter is Joni Mitchell’s ninth studio album and was released in 1977. A double album, it expanded on the experimental jazz fusion sound found on Mitchell’s previous album, Hejira. The album also featured members of Weather Report, Jaco Pastorius and Wayne Shorter. Jaco helped to produce much of the record. Although Don Juan’s Reckless Daughter had mixed reviews when it first came out, the album did manage to peak at #25 on the Billboard charts and was certified gold by the RIAA.
A big chunk of the pop audience Joni Mitchell had earned with Court and Spark in 1974 deserted her in 1975 and 1976 when the follow-ups, The Hissing of Summer Lawns and Hejira, proved more difficult works. With the pretentious double album Don Juan’s Reckless Daughter, Mitchell lost many of the loyal fans who’d stuck with her from the beginning, but who, upon hearing her here as she spread her obscure poetic observations and thin melodies across whole sides of the album, found her disengaged from the close, personal observations that filled her best songs. This was Mitchell’s last album to go gold.
