Joni Mitchell / Vinyl reissues

Song to a Seagull and Clouds

Joni Mitchell’s first two studio albums will be reissued on vinyl, in July.

1968’s Song To A Seagull was the singer-songwriter’s debut and the two sides of the LP are labelled ‘I Came to the City’ and ‘Out of the City and Down to the Seaside’. This issue features a a new mix of the long-player with Joni herself commenting candidly that “The original mix was atrocious. It sounded like it was recorded under a jello bowl, so I fixed it!”

1969’s Clouds is the original mix, remastered. This album features the songs ‘Chelsea Morning’ and ‘Both Sides Now’. Both of these albums were previously reissued in the 2021 box set The Reprise Albums 1968-1971. That box was very expensive (on vinyl) at the time and is already out-of-print.

Song To A Seagull and Clouds will be re-released on vinyl in on 7 July 2023.
