Denver: Back Home Again





This was one of the albums that was a constant presence in my life in the late 1980s and early 1990s, both listening to and playing and singing most of the songs on it, and it has stayed with me ever since. It is a very fine album and one of the highlights of the Denver discography and of particular note for me are the songs On The Road, Cool An’ Green An’ Shady, Eclipse, Matthew, Sweet Surrender, This Old Guitar [strong personal favourites] It is a truly wonderful album if you are not familiar with it and a is a definite recommendation.

When you think of the relationship and inspiration involved it is such a pity that he eventually tried to choke Annie and took a chainsaw to their marital bed and sawed it in half!

Interesting; I have not heard that before and I actually like it in a strange way.

Laibach have produced quite a few unusual cover versions over the last 30 years but have not always been good at crediting the original composers >:(.

NATO here is very obviously Holst's Mars (Johnny Violent and King Crimson have also been averse to using the proper title) -

Any idea if The Hunter's Funeral Procession is a known piece or perhaps a collage? I know the noise at the start is The Nice's Diamond Hard Blue Apples of the Moon ;).

Thank you for those. Unfortunately I cannot get o hook on The Hunter's Funeral Procession - I do not recognise any of it. It could possibly very well disguised.

Taylor: That's Why I'm Here





I had bought one or two more JT albums after this one but this is the last one that I kept. Even so, I would rarely listen to it now.

Earlier than that album or earlier in general, like through Capt Fantastic or so?

Earlier in general is about right for me.

I love his albums through Capt Fantastic, and though I like some of what he did afterwards, it's more individual songs than full albums.

Cheers. That is a good summary of the discography.
