Thread Name: Joni Mitchell's birthday (7 November 1943)
Subject: RE: Joni Mitchell's birthday (7 November 1943)
If you've ever wondered what the fuss is about, like, Big Yellow Taxi, big deal, please take the trouble to listen to her first album: Song to a Seagull
It is a thing of wonders

I agree about the first album - I'm glad to say I bought an import copy of that when it first came out (before it was available in the UK), having heard a single track on the radio and ordered it. Unlike many albums I've bought since on the strength of hearing a single track, I was definitely not disappointed! But IMO she has done a lot of good stuff since then, but like many artists, there's some not-so-good among it all. Almost inevitable with someone who's been around that long and made so many records.
