With John Denver, Denver seemed to be making attempts to change his pastoral country boy image. The cover photo shows him in an intense, energy-charged performance shot, while the instrumentation is more lush and relies less on acoustic guitar than previous efforts. His own “Downhill Stuff,” and a cover of “Johnny B. Goode” are rock numbers, while Bryan Bowers’ “Berkeley Woman” is an uncharacteristically lustful song for Denver to record. Elsewhere, the haunting flute of Jim Horn on “Joseph and Joe,” and Herb Pedersen’s warm “Southwind” make the album a worthwhile buy.Read More

Perhaps John Denver’s worst-selling album, Whose Garden Was This, is largely a record of cover songs, starting with the Tom Paxton-penned environmentalist anthem that is the title track, and including Denver versions of such songs as the Band’s “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down,” Jerry Jeff Walker’s “Mr. Bojangles,” The Beatles’ “Eleanor Rigby,” and “Golden Slumbers.” Denver’s own contributions included the awkward “I Wish I Could Have Been There (Woodstock).” Though Denver tried in a sleeve note to weave all this into a theme, something about “all the things that change as we grow older.” In fact, Whose Garden Was This was an expendable collection of second-rate Denver songs and first-rate songs done better by others. Not surprisingly, it missed the charts.Read More

Consider The Best of Everything a companion piece to An American Treasure, the first posthumous Tom Petty compilation. Weighing in at four CDs, An American Treasure was designed as a gift to the devoted who were still in mourning. In contrast, The Best of Everything is aimed at the fan who didn’t dig quite so deep, or perhaps to listeners who always liked Petty but never bothered to purchase an album.Read More

With its endless, droning minor-key riff and mumbled vocals, “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida” is arguably the most notorious song of the acid rock era. According to legend, the group was so stoned when they recorded the track that they could neither pronounce the title “In the Garden of Eden” or end the track, so it rambles on for a full 17 minutes, which to some listeners sounds like eternity. But that’s the essence of its appeal — it’s the epitome of heavy psychedelic excess, encapsulating the most indulgent tendencies of the era. Iron Butterfly never matched the warped excesses of “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida,” either on their debut album of the same name or the rest of their catalog, yet they occasionally made some enjoyable fuzz guitar-driven psychedelia that works as a period piece.Read More
