Song to a Seagull

Okay, this Joni community seems to be a little too quiet for my liking, especially when you consider how much there is to talk about with regards to the woman herself!  So I though a good idea, to get people chatting again, would be to post an album each week and people can tell us what they think of it.  Basically anything you have to say on it or the songs including, any trivia that you have, any comments that Joni made about them, perhaps any live mp3s that you wish to share, what the songs mean to you personally, any stories behind them etc.  I think it would be really interesting to hear from you all!  And naturally, since this is the first week, we'll be starting with Song to a Seagull.

As you all probably know, this album was released early 1968 and was divided into two sides called "I Came to the City" and "Out of the City and Down to the Seaside" respectively.  And here is the track listing

 Side 1:
"I Came to the City"

  1. "I Had a King" – 3:37
  2. "Michael from Mountains" – 3:41
  3. "Night in the City" – 2:30
  4. "Marcie" – 4:35
  5. "Nathan La Franeer" – 3:18

Side 2: "Out of the City and Down to the Seaside"

  1. "Sisotowbell Lane" – 4:05
  2. "The Dawntreader" – 5:04
  3. "The Pirate Of Penance" – 2:44
  4. "Song to a Seagull" – 3:51
  5. "Cactus Tree" – 4:35
So let us know what you think?!
