Blue


'Blue' was the first Joni Mitchell album I ever listened to and bought for myself - ages ago. When I saw that Laurie Hastings had based her Edinburgh exhibition of screen-printed illustrations on Mitchell's album, the song Blue was back in my head, instantaneously. The exhibition is on here:
If you live in Edinburgh, go have a look! I will console myself by listening to Blue. Songs are like tattoos. Yep.

Aaah Joni! I too remember buying Blue and have some great memories associated with it - even the sad ones. Like tattoos indeed!

GREAT! I just bought BLUE on a new release- it is Joni in all her glory and in my studio full blast! I also got Herbie Hancock's new cd- BLUE, Joni songs, It's Ok but not as good as the original. You, me, simpatico! Love Blue!

kendalee & linda sue - So glad you love it too! I should actually get it on CD, I'm not even sure that our record player still works!
karina & bronwyn - Oh, if ever you have happen upon the music, do give it a listen. Her lyrics are so beautiful and her voice is haunting. And the exhibition of Blue-inspired art looks great - I love Laurie Hastings's style of illustration ... And you have a happy weekend too!
