Joni Mitchell is a folksinger

Joni Mitchell is a folksinger, who strums guitar and sings her own songs in a Reprise LP, "Clouds." Joni has an appealing voice, especially when double-taped for duets, like in "Songs to Aging Children." But, there is that sameness or monotone quality that all folksingers attempt to achieve. Joni achieves it in a plaintive, colorless fashion.
