On 1971's, Blue, Joni Mitchell took a poetic look inside and produced some of her most enduring work. The first song, "All I Want" begins "I am on a lonely road and I am traveling/Looking for something to set me free," and those sentiments set the tone for the recording. With great eloquence, she examines the expectations of romance, the cost of wanderlust, and the discipline of art. On the title track she sings "Hey Blue/here is a shell for you/Inside you'll hear a sigh/A foggy lullaby/There is your song from me." Featuring remarkably spare accompaniment by Mitchell, and guests, James Taylor and Stephen Stills, Blue highlights Mitchell's maturity as a singer. When people speak of Mitchell as the godmother of Lilith Fair, this is the Joni they speak of.
