I met this album in my childhood, when it was released. It has been a companion and a touchstone in my life ever since. These words are more a part of me now than any other words in literature.

This is the third Joni Mitchell album I purchased back in the early 1970's. By now, I was completely obsessed with all things Joni Mitchell and began covering some of her songs in local coffee houses in NYC. She is truly a legend!
