    <span><font size="2"><font face="Arial">Court and Spark is<br/>Joni Mitchell's most overt attempt at making a hit record, full of<br/>glossy production, catchy choruses, and even guest stars from every<br/>stratum of rock culture, high (Robbie Robertson) and low (Cheech and<br/>Chong). The record was a smash, reaching number two on the charts in<br/>March of 1974, spawning three hit singles; Help Me, Free Man in Paris<br/>and Raised on Robbery and cementing Mitchell's position as a commercial<br/>as well as an artistic force. Sean Nelson, a well known musician himself (Harvey Danger, the Long Winters), is particularly well equipped to understand all the elements that went into the making of this classic album, and he does so with clarity and wit.</font></font></span>>

    The definitive biography of Alan Lomax-from John Szwed,"the best music biographer in the business" (L.A. Weekly). One of the most remarkable figures of the twentieth century, Alan Lomax was best known for bringing legendary musicians like Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Muddy Waters, Lead Belly, and Burl Ives to the radio and introducing folk music to a mass audience. Now John Szwed, the acclaimed biographer of Miles Davis and Sun Ra, presents the first biography of Lomax, a man who was as influential as he was controversial-trailed for years by the FBI, criticized for his folk- song-collecting practices, denounced by some as a purist and by others as a popularizer. This authoritative work reveals how Lomax changed not only the way everyone in the country heard music but also the way they viewed America itself.
