John Denver: Live In LA 1971 (CD)

(Hotspur)/2016) 13 tracks

John Denver Live in LA 1971
On September 1, 1971, John Denver played the Troubadour in West Hollywood with just acoustic guitars and a double bass, shortly after 'Take Me Home, Country Roads' became his first hit. Broadcast on KDAY-AM in Los Angeles, the performances on this CD include versions of that smash and his famous composition 'Leaving on a Jet Plane.' Also featured are other songs from his early albums and covers of compositions by James Taylor, Tom Paxton, and Merle Haggard.

In the late summer of 1971, John Denver had just started to become a national name after a half-dozen years as a recording artist. In the spring, 'Take Me Home, Country Roads' had become one of the biggest hits of the year, soaring to #2 and staying in the charts for 23 weeks. Shortly afterward, Poems, Prayers & Promises became his first hit album, peaking at #15 and enjoying 31 weeks in the Top Forty. Denver had already written a #1 hit with 'Leaving on a Jet Plane,' taken by Peter, Paul & Mary to the top of the charts in 1969. Now, however, he was a singer-songwriter star in his own right, landing hits in both the pop and country charts throughout the 1970s. Broadcast on KDAY-AM in Los Angeles, these performances from his September 1, 1971 set at the Troubadour in West Hollywood mixed material from various phases of his still-young career. As well as featuring 'Take Me Home, Country Roads' and 'Leaving on a Jet Plane,' he also presented compositions by other noted singer-songwriters with roots in the folk revival. As his acoustic guitar was backed only by acoustic guitarist Mike Taylor and double bassist Dick Kniss, it's early-197os Denver at his fondest and, on lighter tunes like 'I Lost My Heart on a 747,' most comic.

Denver first came to prominence in the folk world as part of the Mitchell Trio, with whom he cut three albums in the mid-196os. 'Leaving on a Jet Plane' was recorded by the Mitchell Trio on their 1967 LP Alive, and was featured on Peter, Paul & Mary 170o album the same year, but didn't become a hit for them until 1969. By that time Denver had left the Mitchell Trio to start a solo career on RCA Records, but his first three LPs for the label barely or never charted, leaving 'Take Me Home, Country Roads' to pave his breakthrough.

Joining him for his Troubadour performance of this hit are the folk duo who helped him write it, Bill Danoff and Taffy Nivert, whom he'd met while working together at the Cellar Door club in Washington

Artist description "Denver, John"

John Denver
Amerikanischer Folksänger, Gitarrist, Songschreiber und Filmschauspieler. Als John Deutschendorf 1943 in Rossell (New Mexico) geboren. Begann seine Karriere zunächst als Komponist, so unter ande-rem auch für das Folk-Trio Peter, Paul 8- Mary, das 1969 mit seinem „Leaving an a Jet Plane" einen ihrer größten Hits hatte. Nach diesem Erfolg gelang John Denver auch der eigene Durchbruch als Solist. Während der frühere Architektur-student bis dahin nur in kleinen Clubs aufgetreten war, füllte er seitdem die größten Hallen. Besonders bei älteren Amerikanern kam er gut an.

Seine gelegentlich patriotisch gefärbten Songs sprachen weniger die Jugendlichen an.
Meist singt er romantisch-verklärt von ländlicher Nostalgie, von stillen, klaren Bergseen.

1974 hatte er mit „Annie's Song" seinen bisher wohl größten Hit, der ihn auch in Europa bekannt machte. Seine gefällige, einschmeichelnde Stimme und die sanften Melodien machten ihn auch bei uns zum Star.
