Joni Mitchell: Carey

I don't know what it is about Canadian singers of the 1960s, but it was when I found I had bought CDs by both Leonard Cohen and Joni Mitchell that I decided I must be a grown up.

In particular it was when I had bought Mitchell's masterpiece, the album Blue, from which this song comes.

And if you are a real Joni Mitchell fan you will also want to see this clip of her singing as Joni Anderson on TV in 1965.

Amazing to watch that rather nervous and anodyn clip from 1965 and to compare it with songs like River, Chelsea Morning and Big Yellow Taxi which are massively more distinctive and self confident.
