 American Masters . Joni Mitchell | PBS
The remarkable and profound stylistic changes that Joni Mitchell has gone through are, in a real and poetic sense, a reliving of the journey of Western culture from the idealism of the classical-romantic tradition into the "darkness of our Modern age".

Joni Mitchell's first album Song to a Seagull was evidence of a musical style still connected to classical ideals of beauty.
