Simply Magnificent

(5 out of 5 stars)

"As a life long JD fan I would have to rate this album as one of my top 3 favourites along with I WANT TO LIVE and WINDSONG. There just isn't one track that isn't a classic from the uplifting title track to the superb WHISPERING JESSE and if there is a better love song around than FOR YOU, I've yet to hear it. Any JD fans out there thinking of getting this one I would simply say BUY BUY BUY"
A thoughtful, insightful John Denver

"This is an overlooked but very worthwhile album, even if it only included its two beautiful love songs ("Never a Doubt" and "For You"), a song of a soul yearning to do and be more ("Higher Ground"), and a playful song of simple, homespun delights ("Homegrown Tomatoes"). But "Falling Leaves" borders on being a masterpiece. It is a haunting song about refugees that asks "Are they not some dear mother's child? Are they not you and I? Are we the ones to bear this shame? And they the sacrifice?" Denver's socially conscious and responsible poetry belies his image of a simple country boy."
One of John's BEST!

"People who have not heard the "Higher Ground" album are missing some of the best of JD's music. All but one of the 12 cuts are written by John. This was the first album produced after John left the RCA label. There's the fun of "Homegrown Tomatoes", the word pictures of "Whispering Jesse" and the new wedding classic "For You". Another song on the album, "A Country Girl in Paris" is one tune that only avid John Denver fans know and love. The rest of the music world are at a loss for not having discovered this album."
