    Court and Spark was/is by far my most favorite Joni album, urgent, direct, fraught with emotion – Cut it out Stevens, Joni ruled on this one

      My Dear Hedley,
      No one can come close to Joni on some of her songs and this is one of them. i give him credit for choosing it.

        If you had taken “Court and Spark” to Ghana, you would have been blasting around on your Lambretta, fighting Crocs and yelling something about being raised on robbery

        I probably bought 15 Joni albums based solely on the brilliance of this record, although Hissing was pretty cool

        Court and Spark was released after my Ghana days. I took Clouds with me as it was released just before I left. My sister sent me Ladies of the Canyon and I bought Blue when I got home.

        Clouds took a beating from the frequency of playing time and the humidity.

        Chelsea Morning and Both Sides Now were hardly going to put you in Croc Fighting mood. Good for a nap but hardly the stuff of Court and Spark

        That album will always have a commanding place in my heart. Music and books were like gifts from the Gods and that Joni will always be my favorite because of Ghana.

    Whatever happened to Sufjan? He was the flavor of the day for about 3 months and you couldn’t avoid him. I liked him. I liked his Illinoise period and then he practically disappeared (overexposed?). Subsequent output by him never really did much for me.

      I liked him the first time I heard him which was on a Christmas album. It might have been the Christmas tag which did it for me, but I did like his voice. I haven’t heard anything by him in ages. I guess he one of those here awhiles.
