180 gram vinyl. Released in 1976 'Hejira' is the 8th studio album from legendary Canadian singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell. The title word hejira is a transliteration of the Arabic word 'hijra' meaning journey which was a big inspiration for the album, as Mitchell said "the whole 'Hejira' album was really inspired... I wrote the album while traveling cross-country by myself and there is this restless feeling throughout it... The sweet loneliness of solitary travel." Although the album was not as commercially successful as its predecessors it has been widely critically acclaimed and recognized as one of the high water marks of Mitchell's illustrious career, with special mention to the support of Jaco Pastorious's distinctive fretless bass.
