Joni Mitchell, Ladies Of The Canyon, Reprise RS-6376, 1970

I really wanted to showcase a Leonard Cohen album today.  But it turns out I don’t have any, bought at any price.  A record with one of his sons being covered would have been great too, but I couldn’t find any of those either.  So I turned to another classic record form a similar vein.

Joni Mitchell through her songwriting first blended folk, rock, art, and social justice into one seamless package.  That she could sing like an angel was almost an after thought.  This album came out as her star was still rising, and the best known songs on it were made so by being recorded by other people.

It’s not in perfect condition, but at $2 who cares.  It’s Joni Mitchell at her best, and that’s worth a few pops.

Today’s Summary:
Cost: $2, $654 Remaining
