Court and Spark

Last year Josh's Uncle Gary bequeathed to us his turn-table and LPs. It's really been a joy having the sound of vinyl in our little apartment. It seems silly, but there really is such a different feel to music when you hear it in this way. I was just discussing it with Steve & Meri the other day. Steve felt that the physical action of turning the album to side two makes you more conscious of what you're going to hear. The past few days I've been listening to Joni Mitchell's Court and Spark. I love Joni Mitchell, and this album is really good. It has songs that are really enjoyable, with little notes and phrases that make me smile.
