Wow if you check my comment about Hejira then you will know my crate digging habits of late. Now a thing of the past until the virus goes away, if it ever does !
This one was also bought for £6 in Hull back in 2018 but not until today have I even had time to check what edition I had purchased. Yes it's been a very busy time due to family illnesses I'm afraid. But it seems I have a first pressing variant 2 and it's in very good condition. Discs are near mint and both inner/outer gatefold cover/s classed as near mint.
On my Rega P7 it sounds wonderfully smooth and spacious, great bass and nice wide sound stage. This is a very good sounding album, sorry I do not have the technical terms but having played vinyl albums since 1970 this sounds perfect but whether my hearing is still up to scratch at age 58 is very doubtful.
Thank the goddess for Joni.
Why was she never given the credit she deserved for this mid to late 70s period. Sampling, world music, suspended sus. chords aplenty, progressive music, jazz collaboration, you name it she was way ahead of anyone's game.
Like Kate Bush that shortly followed, a true pioneer.

If joni wrote the cotton avenue song today the twita taliban SJWs would diss her merciless, how times change.
This is one of her great albums, as are all of her early/70s efforts. The first 10 years, brilliant stuff.

I would agree with spp1680. This album isn’t nearly as bad as critics paint it to be. I came into this record with no expectations because of the fact it’s been dogged many times. Little did I know, it’d become one of my favorite Joni albums. Granted, it’s not as great as other albums she’s released, but that’s not to say it’s horrible or bad. Not even. It’s an incredible release and Joni proved to be an enigma among her contemporaries for taking huge artistic risks and finally reaching full jazz influence by the time Mingus came around.

Jericho, seen previously on her Miles of Aisles live album, is finally given the album treatment with Jaco and Co. And Jaco’s Incredible and spellbinding bass playing gives this song even more buoyancy and gives it an even deeper, darker depth than the Miles of Aisles version with the LA Express.

Also another great one, Talk To Me. Which is comprised predominately of Joni on acoustic and Jaco on bass, having almost a showdown of sorts to see who could get deeper into the guts of the song and it’s spine chilling.

Otis and Marlena is another one of my favorites with instrumentation that harkens to a 70s road trip along the desert with the windows and/or top down.

Joni experiments more with world music and African/Latin influences as she did on The Jungle Line two years prior. The Tenth World is predominately an instrumental, a prelude to Dreamland.

Overall... it’s aged decently well forty years later. I love it! Would love to see a 180G reissue!

In 1977, while most of her contemporaries seemed to be on auto-pilot, Joni Mitchell was delving deeper into jazz and Afro-Latin/Brazilian music, and chiseling a half-hour piano improvisation into an epic side-long orchestral suite. Almost no one of her status in mainstream pop music was taking these kinds of artistic risks at the time. This album was a brave, ambitious undertaking. Critics trashed it, jazz people snubbed her as a dabbler, and many of her fans were befuddled. But what's a creative artist to do? Stick to a successful formula, or continue challenging herself? Sure, this album has its flaws, but there's still a lot of good music to be found here. And even if you don't like the more experimental "Paprika Plains" (I do) or the long percussion jams, the rest of these songs are a perfectly logical extension of what she'd done on "Hejira" and/or a foreshadowing of what was to come on "Mingus".
