Consumer Guide by Review Date: 1972-01-20


John Denver: Aerie (RCA, 1971) Some sort of nadir among commercially successful singer-songwriter records. The voice and the songs are tepid and uninteresting, as if the mid-'60s folk sensibility and the stringless/hornless instrumentation. There's more originality and spirit in Engelbert Humperdinck. If James is a wimp, John is a simp, and that's apparently even worse. D

Livingston Taylor: Liv (Capricorn, 1971) No relation to Hound Dog, unfortunately. C
