"I Don't Know Where I Stand"---check out Fairport Convention's electric take on this great song on their Heyday record, which I believe is a record of BBC recordings.

Hi girls+boys+all of you people involved with setting up this web-page.i was listening to the "radio" the other day+fortunately,: JONI'S song Clouds was playin'! This piece of music took me back decades ago!! Unvoluntarily, i had to take part in the Vietnam war+and we had our ghetto blasters as a consolence 2 remain in touch with "back home".I,as well as the "kids" now-a-days ,involved in senceless "wars" search for positive messages from relatives,friends aquaintences,etc,etc! I watched the Clouds back then+still do! THANK YOU JONI

So after devouring "Song to a Segull" and becoming completely obsessed with Joni Mitchell back in 1970, I had to purchase this album too and tried learning some of the songs in open tuning on my guitar. Joni Mitchell's early music will always hold a very special place in my heart.
