''Court and Spark'' is the sixth studio album by Canadian singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell. Released in January 1974, the album saw Mitchell infusing her folk-rock style, which she developed throughout her previous five albums, with jazz inflections. A very accessible and commercially-appealing album, ''Court and Spark'' was Mitchell's commercial and popular triumph—it was not only praised by critics (as were all of her albums of the 1970s) but was also received very warmly by the public, becoming her most successful album. It reached #2 in the United States and #1 in Canada and eventually received a Double Platinum certification by the RIAA, the highest during Mitchell's career. In 2003 it was listed at #111 on ''Rolling Stone'' magazine's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. - Wikipedia
