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.

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. Continue reading “John Denver – Whose Garden Was This (1970) {2017, Remastered, WEB Hi-Res}”
