The Vermont-originating trio Mountain Man returned last year after an eight-year hiatus to gift us with their signature harmonizing and prairie croons on their sophomore album Magic Ship. The ladies are keeping the momentum going with a new EP of two John Denver covers, Mountain Man Sings John Denver, which is out digitally now. A 7″ vinyl will be released in June.
We premiered the B-side, “Around And Around,” way back in 2013. Now Mountain Man have released the other half of the collection:”Take Me Home, Country Roads,” arguably Denver’s most famous song.
The new cover is as sparse as can be — whispering acoustic guitar and that dulcet trio of voices. It feels like a caress of the forehead, head nestled in a loved one’s lap. John Denver would be proud.
