is the seventh album by Farewell Andromeda American singer-songwriter John Denver, released in June 1973. The LP made Billboard's Top 20, reaching #16, with three singles subsequently released: "I'd Rather Be A Cowboy" [#62 POP, #25 AC], "Farewell Andromeda" [#89 POP, #20 AC] and "Please, Daddy" [#69 POP, #69 C&W].
Each single was only marginally successful; however, Denver soon became a megastar the following year with "
Annie's Song", " Back Home Again" and the re-release of " Sunshine On My Shoulders", among others.
Farewell Andromeda is also remembered quite fondly for Denver's cover version of John Prine's "Angels From Montgomery."
