Toots & The Maytals prove what I always thought – that John Denver had a lot of soul, as they do a great cover of his country classic, Take Me Home, Country Roads…
Liking John Denver is one of my more shameful habits, but there’s something about his gentle country music that I just love. And so I was very pleased when a friend played me this wonderful version of Take Me Home, Country Roads by reggae/ska stars Toots & The Maytals. Because surely if the band who recorded the mighty Funky Kingston & Pressure Drop covered one of his songs, then it must mean that John Denver is cool!
No? Oh well, download Toots & The Maytals covering Take Me Home, Country Roads in a ska style and tell me it’s not a wonderful thing! If you’re not sure whether you want to buy it, why not listen to it first?
And whilst you’re at it, have a look at the original – come on admit it, it’s great!
