    Well AHC - I would guess you're right. It seems that Glenn must've always had a way with the ladies. I'll bet that video you watched on YouTube must have been the one our own SodaScouts put up wasn't it?

    I was listening to the title track from Court & Spark and I thought it was possible it may also have been about Glenn. I never understood the title, but she sings something about 'you're looking for a woman to court and spark'. Quite.

    But looking at it it seems to be more about an itinerant musician such as she also describes in For Free:

    I remember hearing that one time Glenn was asked by Cameron Crowe, "Are you aware most of Joni Mitchell's "Court and Spark" album is about you?" He answered he was aware of it and that he knew he hadn't treated her as well as she deserved, but he didn't elaborate. Guess that's "his own business"!

    In that case, I think Down To You is about him too.

    Wow - if most of this album is about Glenn, I may have to give it another listen. I haven't listened to it in many years - it was probably back in the '70's when I last heard it.

    After reading through this thread, I was reminded of a comment made to me during my New Year's Eve gig last year (which you can read about in more detail in "Cheap Talk and Wine: What's happening in your life?" ). One of the audience members paid me a huge compliment after I sang "Wild Mountain Thyme" - she told me I sounded like Joni Mitchell during the song .

    I've only heard about one of her songs, but I reckon I'm going to look for this album if so many of the songs on it were written about Glenn !


    I've got a peaceful, easy feeling
    And I know Glenn won't let me down

    Nice compliment MF! What a lovely thing for that lady to say. I'm sure you sounded great! Congratulations.

    I've often said I'd love to write a song to or about Glenn . But an Album! WOW!

    Well, I must go and listen to this again, and look at the lyrics. That comment to Cameron Crowe is interesting. At least he shows a bit of remorse for how he treated Joni.

    MF, that's a nice compliment. I think Joni Mitchell is one of the great singer songwriters and her voice is amazing. You should try and get a couple of her albums. I have For The Roses, Blue and Hissing Of Summer Lawns in addition to Court And Spark.

    As well as Court & Spark I have Ladies Of The Canyon, Blue and Hejira. Hejira is far & away the best of them.
