Editors’ Notes

Joni Mitchell’s second album, Clouds, is the first collection of the Joni who fans fell in love with. Her first album had left off songs she'd written that had been successful covers for other artists (such as “Tin Angel,” “Chelsea Morning," and “Both Sides Now”), but here she reclaims them as her own. Writing of the uncertainties of young love (“I Don’t Know Where I Stand”), mental illness (“I Think I Understand”), the allure of "wild ones" (“That Song About the Midway”), and even American military actions (“The Fiddle and the Drum”), Mitchell, with unusual harmonic and instrumental skills, proved herself a remarkable and superior talent.

Customer Reviews

At last!

This is early Joni: young and *not* flashy. It's great to have the original "Both Sides Now" available -- the later versions have not held up. "Chelsea Morning" and "Midway" are treats. "Clouds" is a must for any Joni-phile.

One Of Her Best!

This is a great example of her post hippie era. From the always evocative “ Both Sides Now” to the joyful strumming of “Chelsea Morning” it is a chronicle of a great artists’ continuing evolution. A must have for long time fans and newcomers!

Born: November 7, 1943 in Fort Macleod, Alberta, Canada

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

No female artist better typified the singer/songwriter movement of the '70s than Joni Mitchell, though her public image as the serious, sensitive woman with a guitar shortchanged her abilities, ambitions, and accomplishments. Mitchell's gift for writing personal, folk-inspired songs about the thorny side of life and love was inarguable (particularly on albums like 1970's Ladies of the Canyon and 1971's Blue), but Mitchell also brought the same smarts and eloquence to glossy pop on her commercial...
