all Time Favorite

Sometimes I buy records on a whim and never listen to them.  I spend a good amount of time listening to the same music and then one day I'll get bored and change my entire repertoire.  So, about ten years ago I had become completely bored and was searching through my albums to see if there was anything I'd never given a listen to.  I stumbled across "Court and Spark" by Joni Mitchell.  

My parents were late baby boomers.  They grew up listening to Joni Mitchell and passed it down to me.  I remember my father listening to "Blue" mostly.  When I was a teenager, I loved "Clouds" and "Ladies of the Canyon" but I had never heard of "Court and Spark".  So, when I  finally listened to this album,  I called my father to tell him about it and he said "your mom and I used to listen to that constantly right before you were born."  I think this is why I have an amazing affinity to this album, it must have permeated my soul in the womb.  I can honestly say this is one of my top 5 albums of all time, so I thought this would be an appropriate way to start this blog.
