The "Woodstock" anthem was the catalyst for LOTC success, but it is by no means the only, or even best, tune this effort offers. "Morning Morgantown" sets the scene for a recording that basically takes the listener through a pastoral panorama. Along the way are some observations about the intrusion of art meets commerce ( "For Free"), manipulative triangles ( " Conversation"), Gender roles ( the stunning " Arrangement"), and spiritual quest ( " The Priest"). Of course, another career launcher, " Big Yellow Taxi", graces this album, as well as Mitchell's camp classic " The Circle Game".
This might possibly be the best introduction one could have to Ms. Mitchell's extraordinary canon. Then, working back to the first two, already exquisit work will be found. Proceeding forward, the genuis takes shape. LOTC is music for mellowing.
`Morning Morgantown' opens the album in storybook style with Joni telling us about an idyllic morning in a small town, who she sees and everything that happens. With pleasant melodies, soft guitar accompanied by soothing piano in the chorus it is an elegant opener which has more in common with her previous album.
`For Free' is my favourite song on the album and the first which is primarily dominated by the piano. Casting many shadows with its atmosphere it speaks of the dark side of fame, causing loss of self, selfishness, guilt. Self-deprecating, ironic, and supremely descriptive the lyrics are among Joni's best. Avoiding a standard verse chorus convention the song grows in depth as it continues, with subtle strings added in the second half, and the piano melodies varying with each line to avoid repetition.Read more ›
Track two, 'For Free' is new territory; the first fully fledged piano-based song in Joni's recorded catalogue. She also sounds self-conscious, even a little guilty, about her status in the 'music biz', a new theme whose implications she would continue to explore as her success grew. It also anticipates the bleak melancholy, underpinned by her distinctive piano feel, which would figure so strongly on her seminal album Blue.
Drummer Russ Kunkel adds subtle brushwork to 'Conversation', which also uses recorder, flute ('For Free' already having brought in clarinet) and Joni's own ebullient harmony vocals: Joni is stealthily expanding her palette! It also introduces a slightly bitchy vibe, as the note of love is slightly soured by jealousy: she writes of her rival, with typically articulate scorn, "she speaks in sorry sentences, miraculous repentences, I don't believe her"!
The title track sounds, melodically and harmonically, like close-kin to material on her first album, but the degree of maturity and sophistication she's now achieving is on a higher level. And what a wonderful celebration of womankind.Read more ›
Besides personal introspection, she reflects on the Woodstock Generation with ‘Woodstock’; CSNY’s more upbeat interpretation of the song became an international hit single, but Joni’s original is slower, quieter and altogether more poignant. CSNY supply vocal harmonies on many tracks here.
For the first time on LotC Joni used piano as the main accompanying instrument to many songs for a more reflective ‘indoor’ sound, in contrast to the more open-air & upbeat folk-guitar soundscape of songs like ‘Big Yellow Taxi’, the album’s unexpected hit single. This endows the collection with more light-and-shade than evident on the first two albums, and in overall style points the way to her fourth album, the magnificent classic ‘Blue’ where her true genius became obvious.
