  • Song to a Seagull

    On her 1968 debut, Joni Mitchell thanks Mr. Kratzman for teaching her to love words in more than just the album dedication; Song to a Seagull's poetic lyricism and ornate vocabulary are its hallmarks. Though the Canadian-born songwriter had been exploring the New York folk scene, this David Crosby-produced album reveals Mitchell's deep love of classical music and eschews the era's folk-rock sound in favor of something more impressionistic and melodically rich. With her soaring vocals and harmonic guitar at the forefront, the mood is wistful and there is a fanciful innocence here that isn't present in Mitchell's later work. Divided into two parts, Song to a Seagull moves from the city to the sea in its tales of failed marriage ("I Had a King"), grumbling taxi drivers ("Nathan La Franeer"), promise-breaking pirates ("The Pirate of Penance"), and, ultimately, the desire for love versus the need for independence ("Cactus Tree").
