Misses is a 1996 compilation album by Joni Mitchell. The tracks were chosen by Mitchell herself, and her selections concentrate on her lesser known, more experimental work, including jazz influenced recordings from the late 1970s and electronic music from the 1980s. Mitchell also designed the album cover.[1] The album is a companion to Hits, issued on the same day. Mitchell agreed to a request from her record company to release a greatest hits album on the condition that she would also be allowed to release Misses.[2]
