Joni Mitchell's first album ["Joni Mitchell," Warner Bros. 7 Arts, etc.] is an effort I admire greatly but don't like very much musically. It is a very personal tale told with an integrity which only seems pretentious because it is sung. Even the cover, which the artist did herself, is something of an enigma and certainly very personal. Is the Real Title to the album "Song to a Seagull?" [It's spelled out in gulls beneath her name.] Let's pretend it is, because the song of the same name within the plastic says "humans are hungry/for worlds they can't share/My dreams with the seagulls fly/out of reach and out of cry."
