Joni Mitchell is one of the greatest songwriters of the late 20th century. For over forty years her powerful lyrics have compelled listeners to dig deeper. This one of a kind collection finally allows even her most passionate fans to do just that.

Gathered Light: The Poetry of Joni Mitchell's Songs includes more than fifty original contributions by acclaimed writers such as Wally Lamb and Fred Wah, as well as many of Mitchell's long-time friends and creative collaborators. These diverse voices celebrate Mitchell's poetic craft and the profound impact of her words on their lives.

Joni Mitchell has endorsed these explorations and has edited her lyrics especially for this edition, making Gathered Light the collection that fans of this legendary artist have been waiting for. Featuring a diverse list of contributors:

- David Geffen on "Free Man in Paris"
- Larry Klein, Joni's ex-husband and longtime producer, on "Chinese Cafe"
- Sharon Bell Veer, of "Song For Sharon" fame
- Trina Robbins, one of the "Ladies of the Canyon"
and many more
