[Kronomyth 1.0] The Lullabies of Ladybyrd.
Her second album contains two of her best: “Chelsea Morning” and “Both Sides, Now.”
Joni Mitchell crystallized a moment and CSN&Y shine their brilliant light through it.
An album bookended by some of her best work, otherwise important for the introduction of more piano songs.
[Kronomyth 3.1] Give me spots on my apples, but leave me the birds and the bees.
The record that launched a thousand dulcimer sales. Oh, and also one of the greatest works of art in the twentieth century.
Joni pines for California, then Canada, from Europe, on the second single culled from Blue.
A naturally brilliant but audibly deflated work that brings Joni’s jazzier sensibilities to the fore at the expense of a little joy.
Not the worst song on Joni’s best album, but if you bought this hoping to spark your interest in Court, you were robbed.
Fans didn’t go wild over this one, and it became the first Nash album not to go gold.
This is the clouds parting, and the sun shining, and the insects trilling and the birds singing.
Joni perfectly captures what falling in love feels like, and I’ve been head-over-heels for her ever since.
