Michael Fremer's 100 Recommended All-Analog LP Reissues Worth Owning - Rated 75/100!

TAS Super LP List! Special Merit: Informal

Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 113/500!
Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Songs of All Time - "Help Me" - Rated 288/500!


A singer, composer and lyricist of exceptional talent and unmatched influence, Joni Mitchell has crafted an extraordinary body of work spanning more than 40 years and is widely regarded as one of the brightest musical lights of recent generations. Fans, fellow musicians and critics have delighted in an ever-evolving creative journey, with songs both universal and profoundly personal. Her music has become a standard to which others are compared and which many aspire to copy, but its inventiveness and ineffable spirit make it decidedly her own. Explore the musical magnificence of Joni Mitchell.

"Working with saxophonist Tom Scott's fusion group L.A. Express, Mitchell settles into a folk-pop-jazz groove that remains a landmark of breezy sophistication, particularly on the Top Ten single "Help Me." Strange but true: A cover of "Twisted" by the scat — jazz vocal group Lambert, Hendricks and Ross closes the album — with stoner comics Cheech and Chong singing backup." - www.rollingstone.com

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.


"If you love this record you will not regret investing in this superb reissue, which is packaged with equal care and is faithful to the original, complete with the embossed lettering and well-reproduced cover art, though the paper stock is a paler yellow." - Michael Fremer, www.musicangle.com, Music 10/10, Sound 10/10

"'I had attempted to play my music with rock & roll players,' Mitchell said in 1979. 'They’d laugh, 'Aww, isn’t that cute? She’s trying to tell us how to play.'' It took a jazz group — Tom Scott’s L.A. Express — to realize her biggest hit, a swooning confession of love trouble complete with swirling sax break. One rocker, Prince, loved the song so much he quoted it on 'The Ballad of Dorothy Parker.'" - Rolling Stone
