Court and Spark is the sixth studio 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 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

On first listening, Joni Mitchell‘s Court And Spark, the first truly great pop album of 1974, sounds surprisingly light; by the third or fourth listening, it reveals its underlying tensions. The lyrics lead us through concentric circles that define an almost Zen-like dilemma: The freer the writer becomes, the more unhappy she finds herself; the more she surrenders her freedom, the less willing she is to accept the resulting compromise. Joni Mitchell seems destined to remain in a state of permanent dissatisfaction - always knowing what she would like to do, always more depressed when it’s done. But if Joni Mitchell is capable of subtly edging around the notion of breakdowns, she’s unable to keep the same distance when singing about the men who dominate the album. She never seems to know where she wants to draw the line in love, or if a line exists at all.

Composed By – Ross (tracks: B6), Joni Mitchell (tracks: A1 to B5), Grey (tracks: B6). Drums, Percussion – John Guerin.

Joni Mitchell reached her commercial high point with Court and Spark, a remarkably deft fusion of folk, pop, and jazz which stands as her best-selling work to date. While as unified and insightful as Blue, the album - a concept record exploring the roles of honesty and trust in relationships, romantic and otherwise - moves away from confessional songwriting into evocative character studies: the hit "Free Man in Paris," written about David Geffen, is a not-so-subtle dig at the machinations of the music industry, while "Raised on Robbery" offers an acutely

Court and Spark is a truly special album. Joni Mitchell proves herself quite handily with its contents. This is one of the reasons why many label her as the female Bob Dylan. I can’t recommend Court and Spark too highly. Every element of the album can’t help but impress. Check it out, and I’m sure you’ll find something you can appreciate. And hey, even if you don’t, look at it this way: you now know a little more about Saskatoon Saskatchewan, it’s many nicknames, and one of it’s most important residents. and John Robinson Penelope.

Lyrics to "Court And Spark" song by Joni Mitchell: Love came to my door with a sleeping roll And a madman's soul He thought for sure I'd seen him Danci. He was playing on the sidewalk for passing change When something strange happened Glory train passed through him So he buried the coins he made in People's Park And went looking for a woman to court and spark. It seemed like he read my mind He saw me mistrusting him and still acting kind He saw how I worried sometimes I worry sometimes
