Court and Spark - Joni Mitchell
Court and Spark is a 1974 album by Canadian singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell. It was an immediate commercial and critical success—and remains her most successful album. Released in January 1974, it was Mitchell’s sixth studio album; it infuses her folk-rock style, which she developed throughout her previous five albums, with jazz inflections.
It reached No. 2 in the United States and No. 1 in Canada and eventually received a Double Platinum certification by the RIAA, the highest of Mitchell’s career. It also reached the Top 20 in the UK and was voted the best album of the year for 1974 in The Village Voice Pazz & Jop Critics Poll. In 2003 it was listed at #111 in Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
