"Song to a Seagull", released in 1968, was Joni Mitchell''s debut album. At the time of its release, she was little known. But in just three years and three additional albums, she became an internationally acclaimed singer/songwriter. The word "amazing", used by many to describe her talents, is an understatement. Her first album is an impressive testament to her creative abilities: as a poet, songwriter, musician and performing artist. In Song to a Seagull one can sense that her many talents and skills were already honed to perfection, as though she had been producing music for decades. It is proof that those (i.e., her parents, former husband, some of her teachers) who told her when she was growing up that she had no talent, that she was a quitter, and would never succeed at anything, were profoundly mistaken. Joni had the resolve and inner strength to persevere in the face of criticism and dire personal circumstances, to become one of the greatest performing artists of the late 20th century.

Her early music doesn''t fit perfectly into any genre, but could best be called contemporary folk music, drawn heavily on her personal experiences and observations of modern life. It is powerful and at times profound, yet soothing, imaginative and very unique. She has a keen intellect and is a sharp observer of life. Mitchell has the ability, like no other I can think of, to play so effectively on my heartstrings, engender deep empathy, and often bring tears to my eyes – tears arising from both empathy for her, and amazement that someone could compose and perform such beautiful music.

When we separated close to 40 years ago, my former wife and I divided up our vinyl albums. My wife took the Joni Mitchell albums and I took some other ones. Now, many years later, I am revisiting Joni Mitchell''s music, and enjoying it more than ever. With greater maturity, I can understand and appreciate more fully what Joni was writing and singing. Song to a Seagull is an excellent introduction to her early works. Enjoy Joni''s crystal clear, alto voice.

Fantastic vocals, lyrics and guitar. Cactus Tree is a reflection of someone I knew. Hauntingly familiar and sad; wonderfully captured by a lady''s mind and set down. For me, I''ve come to the conclusion that Joni''s lyrics and not just from this album alone, especially noted on Shine, seem often to be the voice of wisdom laying down the truth. There is something very satisfying in the hearing of her heart.

For the first 20 years of Joni''s career, I called myself a ''High Priest of the Joni Mitchell Fan Club"!

The first time I ever heard her voice was on the radio in 1969. The song was ''Marcie'' from this album. I had been hearing Judy Collins sing ''Both Sides Now" alot, because it was very popular at the time. And Tom Rush''s version of "Urge For Going" was a favorite of mine then. In fact, I played them on my guitar back then. However, I had not made the connection of those songs to Joni yet.

I immediately loved Marcie. I can remember laying in bed in the middle of the night, alone, listening to the radio, just hoping that THAT song would come on again. Marcie haunted me like no other song that I can ever remember. The lyrics were such beautiful poetry. No one else was writing like that! Joni had touched my soul and presented me with a religious experience. :)

I became a huge fan and over the years always bought everything that she produced. I have many ''favorites''...''Hissing'', being one...and I love ''For the Roses!'', but still, to this day, I have to have my occassional dose of STAS!! Above all other masterpieces that she has given us, this one stands out as the most alluring gift of her genius.

Yes, the jazz is great but the simplicity of this album gave us an example of folk music that transcended anything that had ever been done and, IMHO, has still ever been done!

My observation over the years is that Joni was not a popular artist with most people. Her music was not really ''radio'' music.

She attempted pop with minor success and her jazz, though beautiful and meteoric in it''s boldness, was not generally accepted. I actually never knew another person who really loved her music other than myself and the one other High Priest, who was a close friend of mine.

This album is a wonderful introduction to Joni and in my opinion, should be where any newbie should begin. How can anyone ever hope to understand Joni if they don''t know where her roots are?

I would recommend this album over any other. If a person doesn''t like it, then they probably aren''t going to like anything else that she has done. At least, they aren''t going to love any other. How could they?

This is Joni at her purist and her finest. Her beginnings. Fresh, youthful, unpretentious, uncluttered with the heartache, bitterness and sense of being jaded that she seems to project in her later works.

This is the music that I hope is celestial because I have never grown tired of it and hope to be able to listen to it throughout eternity!

As I have said before, I''m partial to Joni Mitchell''s earlier albums up to and including For The Roses. Joni did some great albums later in her career, but they are not to my taste and I realize that this is a prejudice (musical) of my own particular likes and dislikes and not necessarily a case for arguing that the albums that came after For The Roses are inferior by any means. Song To Seagull is my favorite album by her. I think it is a poetic and musical masterpiece in my opinion. Her other albums are great, this album is beautiful.

This is one of those albums that is inseparable from a time, a place, probably a particular room. Mitchell''s alternately soaring soprano and throaty alto are the cross-threading weave of these songs of love, betrayal, home, and family. The folk patterns she would soon drop are all here, used most effectively on "Marcie," a song that also signals Mitchell''s soon to be legendary storytelling--perceptive, beautiful, and a little cruel, usually. The weakest material is the least melodic, even angular, while the masterpiece, "Michael from Mountains" soars above the rest and makes most criticism seem a little dim. Her extraordinary output, which amounts nearly to a life story told till her most recent lagging attempts, begins here.

Really good to hear this early release. Joni sounds so very English at this point in her career with really crisp pronunciation and tonal eloquence (the opposite to England''s Laura Marling who sounds more American as she floats down the river of banality). They don''t do ''em like this anymore and neither does she, more the pity. Might sound a bit stiff and old fashioned in places for the Hip listener, so maybe stick to the easier and emotional ''Blue'' which is also superlative.This album of work is on par lyrically with anything from Dylan or Cohen, She weaves pictures in words to almost photographic reality.

As a fan of Joni Mitchell for forty-five years, this album was a revelation to me. I''d heard most of her early stuff except this one, and listened over the years to so much from her other albums, but I''d completely missed the best one of all. This album is wonderful... Joni at her absolute best -- fresh, inventive, beautiful songs with clever, sharp lyrics. As usual, she sings of her quest for love, and her disillusionment with love; her intensity and freshness are stunning, her powers of description and observation (again, as usual) almost unmatched. An absolute gem, which I''m very happy to have discovered!

What words best describe Joni Mitchell''s (1968) debut album, Song To A Seagull? Well... I would say melancholic,serious,atmospheric, beautiful ,unique,affecting ,bold and brilliant!This album remains for me (along with Blue) Joni Mitchell''s best and most satisfying early work.Although subsequent albums contain many superb songs/ moments,I always seem to find myself skipping certain tracks. On this album the only song that I am occasionally tempted to skip is the more up-tempo "Night In The City",that sounds slightly at odds with the rest of the songs here.The rest of the album holds together really well resulting in a cohesive collection where the songs,the musicianship,the words and Joni''s voice leave a powerfull and lasting impression on the listener . The unpretenious production and clear,strong sound quality are also top notch . Joni''s voice is mature in it''s depth,warmth,range and delivery.Her guitar playing is imaginative,technically excellent,never over-indulgent and always works for the greater good I.E ,the song itself.In fact,the acoustic guitar and Joni''s voice dominate this recording to a greater extent than any of her others.The style that Joni uses to play her guitar here is usually finger-picking ; think "Scarborough Fair/ Canticle" ( the Simon and Garfunkel version) and you will be close to the mark. Previous reveiwers have described the songs on this album in great depth so I will simply list a few of my personal favourites.The opener,"I Had A King" contains spine chilling vocals when Joni sings in her higher register.I have a great affection for "The Dawntreader" because it was this song that brought my attention to the album in the first place when it was played on Lyric FM''s late night radio show,"The Blue of The Night".This song contains some of my favourite guitar playing.Finally I will include the title track, "Song To A Seagull",whose rich atmosphere epitomises the feel and character of the album . If you enjoy music with the aforementioned qualities ,within a largely Folk oriented leaning,then do yourslf a big favour and give "Song To A Seagull" a listen;I believe you will be glad that you did!

Joni stands head and shoulders above her contemporaries. ''Song to a Seagull'' set a standard that most singer-songwriters, past and present, would aspire to but simply not reach. ''Blue'', (one of Joni''s later acclaimed albums) was, for me, always up there; treasured as a beautiful, fragile, funny and deeply emotional ride, nestling like a gem among my priceless stacks of ageing vinyl. I thought on Blue I had Joni at her best, but a couple of plays into ''Song to..'' i was absolutely mesmerised, intrigued and moved and could barely wait for the embers of the last track to fade before pressing ''play'' again for another dose. (I reluctantly had to move on from vinyl). I find the word ''folk'' off putting: I''m no hippy, i''ve never done any drugs, never strum a guitar and I''m not big on anything else with ''folk'' connotations. At the height of my music library are Joy Division, Beefheart, The Doors, Sonic Youth, The Smiths, The Pixies, The Beatles, The Stones, Velvet U''ground, Love, Eminem, Television.. so I''m not a fan of genres and sticking to them. Add this LP to your collection, leave your musical taste prejudice out of the room and enjoy this for what it is. A collection of superb songs, musically and lyrically perfectly composed and sung like an angel. Let it wash over you for 3 plays with an open mind and you''ll start to get it.
