Inspired by Joni Mitchell's time with a cave-dwelling hippie community in the village of Matala, on the Greek island of Crete. According to the Carey Songfacts, Carey was an "unforgettable character" whom Joni met in Matala. He had flaming red hair and often wore a turban.

    You see my post on Facebook of 13 august 2015 about Joni Mitchell on Crete in the 1970s, pictured with Cary Raditz. The ‘e’ in ‘Carey’ was a mispelling of his name on her part.

    Joni was one of the first folkies I was in to and loved. This was one of my favorite songs and I still rather like it.
