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 has been described pop, but also infuses Mitchell's folk rock style, which she had developed through her previous five albums, with jazz inflections, to produce a style more akin to jazz fusion.

Joni Mitchell, David Crosby and Graham Nash (on Free Man In Paris), Susan Webb and David Crosby (on Down To You), Cheech and Chong (on Twisted) Electric Guitar - Wayne Perkins (on Car On A Hill), Dennis Budimir (on Trouble Child); Robbie Robertson (on Raised on Robbery), Jose Feliciano and Larry Carlton (on Free. Man in Paris), Larry Carlton on all others

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.

Court and Spark sits halfway between Joni Mitchell’s folkie past and her jazz-rock future. Yet the album is no mere transitional affair-not by a long shot. On Help Me and Just Like This Train, she displays a master’s touch, weaving romantic insecurities into arrangements that, decades later, haven’t surrendered their sophistication. The versatile singer/songwriter also finds the time to cut loose, which she does in typically elegant fashion on the wah-wah rocker Raised on Robbery. Try not listening to this album a dozen times in a row. Court and Spark Joni Mitchell.

inger Joni Mitchell had slipped stark saxophone solos into her prior album, For the Roses, and her singing had often hinted at a capacity for bluesier fare than her guitar- and piano-framed confessional ballads offered. None of those hints prepared fans for this sudden, expansive shift toward a much larger canvas-a sleeker, orchestrated pop style pulsing with jazz elements
