Editors’ Notes Joni Mitchell’s second album, Clouds, is the first collection of the Joni who fans fell in love with. Her first album had left off songs she'd written that had been successful covers for other artists (such as “Tin Angel,” “Chelsea Morning," and “Both Sides Now”), but here she reclaims them as her own. Writing of the uncertainties of young love (“I Don’t Know Where I Stand”), mental illness (“I Think I Understand”), the allure of "wild ones" (“That Song About the Midway”), and even American military actions (“The Fiddle and the Drum”), Mitchell, with unusual harmonic and instrumental skills, proved herself a remarkable and superior talent.
