John Denver: Back Home Again [RCA Victor, 1974]
Singer-songwriter folk fault Denver for his simple-minded escapism, implying a preference for subtle escapism in the manner of James & Carly. But if escapism is the context maybe Denver's transparency is a (small) virtue. Good wholesome product, no falser (or true) than the run of the competition, tuneful and chaste with flatness for that common touch. Maybe the folk are offended because he sold four million albums in six months.
