Ladies of the Canyon
The general consensus among Joni Mitchell fans, and I include Mrs CC within this group, is that Blue her 4th album from 1971 is her best. Indeed it features in many of those greatest albums of all time lists and often as the highest by a female artist.
I'm not a huge Joni fan although I like her well enough. I am also quite contrary. So for me her best one is the one before from 1970 Ladies of the Canyon
It includes what is possibly her most famous song Big Yellow Taxi (well her biggest hit at any rate) and also Woodstock.
Being contrary I've selected another two for your listening pleasure.
Joni Mitchell - Morning Morgantown
Joni Mitchell - Ladies of the Canyon
