    This was it. Denver's unstoppable hit album. Production, songwriting, and Denver's performing all merged together to form that magical mix of artistic expression and time and place. It's a hard album to fault. Songs are excellent, including a No1 hit and a hit album to go with it. I don't think he ever hit these heights of quality in production and material again in one album but it doesn't take away from the fact this is a genuinely fine album. My vinyl copy was an original UK pressing which was okay but suffered ticks and noises that detracted sometimes. The original CD seemed lifeless to me but at least clean but, by all accounts, the Speaker's Corner edition is something special. I have the CD from the RCA Collection Boxset as well and it does sound a bit brighter and more 'present'.

      There is a Taiwan 'unofficial' pressing on black vinyl with a red label (First Record FL-2476 STEREO). It plays admirably with very little surface noise. The cover, a copy of RCA's, is printed on paper and is wrapped in cellophane.
