“Since Mitchell’s singing days are over, Robin Adler & Mutts of the Planet just might be the finest repertory band in the contiguous United States, and I seriously doubt that Hawaii or Alaska has anyone that can touch them either. Adler and crew (captained by her husband, Dave Blackburn, a remarkable guitarist, engineer and transcriptionist) are devoted to keeping the music of Joni Mitchell alive, and they do this by reproducing entire albums with a slavish devotion bordering on the obsessive. Mitchell’s masterpiece “Hejira” is therefore rendered faithfully on their latest recording, “Hejira Live,” captured in stunning fidelity at the acoustically pristine Carlsbad Village Theatre on June 1. Robin Adler & Mutts of the Planet are the next best thing to the fantasy of hearing Joni do this material live. “Hejira Live” is a must-have for fans of Mitchell’s enduring music.”
