Mendelsohn: Confession time, Klinger. I put off listening to Joni Mitchell’s Court and Spark to the very last minute. I couldn’t psych myself up enough to spend a couple of days listening to Mitchell bare her soul. Turns out I was fretting for nothing. Court and Spark is a much more upbeat affair, with actual drums and everything. Its poppy, peppy, and downright pretty in some places.
Klinger: Yes, I recall you being a bit unnerved by Blue, Joni’s 1971 confessional masterpiece, and although I still don’t fully understand your skittishness, I suppose I am glad your trepidations were for naught this time around.
