John Denver and Cass Elliot, 1972

“Leaving On A Jet Plane” sung by John Denver and Cass Elliot on the television show “The Midnight Special”. The theme in this particular episode was to encourage the youth that had reached 18 years to register to vote in the upcoming presidential election. The voting age had just been lowered to 18. The two biggest issues, at that time, were Watergate and the war in Vietnam.
