Rhino Audiophile Vinyl Mastered from the Original Analog Tapes and Pressed on 180g LP: Joni Mitchell's Court and Spark Ranks #111 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time List

Court and Spark completed Joni Mitchell's transition from folk singer to sophisticated rock auteur. In addition to her meticulously crafted melodies and evocative, image-rich lyrics, the songs here are breezy and immediately appealing. This is in part due to Tom Scott's L.A. Express, a sinuous jazz-based combo, but also to Mitchell's knack for pop hooks. The album's accessibility made it Mitchell's most commercially successful, yet the personal intensity and insight of her songwriting never wavers. Court and Spark confirmed her standing as one of the most important and subtle talents of the rock era.

Named the 111th Best Album of All Time by Rolling Stone, Court and Spark is a fully fledged exploration of emotional opposites. For every positive, there is a negative. As Jon Landau wrote in his 1974 review for Rolling Stone:

1.  Court and Spark
2.  Help Me
3.  Free Man In Paris
4.  People's Parties
5.  Same Situation
6.  Car On A Hill
7.  Down To You
8.  Just Like This Train
9.  Raised On Robbery
10. Trouble Child
11. Twisted
