I went to Staten Island, Sharon,
to buy myself a mandolin.
(Joni Mitchell, "Song for Sharon," Hejira)
I have not listened to this album for ages; in fact, it's the only Joni CD I own. So brilliant to hear it again, one that I listened to all the time in the eighties. I don't think it is entirely to everyone's taste, as it is quite melancholy, but it's right up my own alley (where a cheerful person who has melancholy tastes lives).
I'll jam with Joni on mandolins any time she likes!
