5.0 out of 5 stars Take me home... Sept. 2 2006
By bernie TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
You can go home again with this CD. As with any greatest hits compilations and many of the "Essential" compilations we are at the mercy of those that make the combination. So I hope some of your favorites are here, mine are.

If you have not heard John Denver that is no real frame of reference. If you have then I am telling you what you already know. There are eleven songs that give a pretty good sample of Denver's songs. If you are going to buy only one album of his, this should be it. This is a collection from his first six albums with the added plus of being a little different as he has expanded is ability.

You can tell the CD lost some resolution from the vinyl. However not enough to distract from your enjoyment.

"Take Me Home, Country Roads" (1971) by Bill Danoff, Taffy Nivert and John Denver. Makes you see the beauty of West Virginia from the inside. If you are ever there once you will realize he captured the country roads driving feeling.

"Follow Me" (1969) by John Denver. "Make it part of you to be part of me." It is about the joys of sharing with each other.

"Starwood in Aspen" (1971) by John Denver. Contemplation going home to Starwood on a plane from L.A.

"For Baby (For Bobbie)" (1965) by John Denver. "I'll walk in the rain by your side" If you listen closely you can hear the Pupils of The Whitby School Greenwich Connecticut in the background vocals.

"Rhymes and Reasons" (1969) by John Denver. The coming of the winter a glimpse of Saturn (the bringer of Old Age) a time of reflection and new insights as to flowers and children. A prayer to non believers.

"Leaving on a Jet Plane" (1967) by John Denver. I have several versions of this by various artists; however I consider Denver's version one of the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet, Pure and Simple This is a wonderful album Oct. 28 2003
Format:Audio CD
I remember when I first heard this album back in the 1970's. I got it as a Christmas gift from my sister and I couldn't stop playing it for weeks. I was so glad when I found this wonderful collection of what I feel are some of John Denver's greatest songs ever on CD. I wore out the old 33rpm record that my sister had given me for Christmas so many years ago. Every song on this album was beautifully written and recorded by John who unfortunately passed away as a result of a freak accident on his jet plane. As I said all of the songs on this Greatest Hits album are beautiful but there a few that really stand out. "Sunshine On My Shoulders" has to be one of the greatest songs ever written the lyrics to this song are really pretty. "Rocky Mountain High" is probably considered by many hardcore Denver fans as his biggest hit ever reaching the #1 position in 1973 for several weeks. "The Eagle and The Hawk" is one that I love too, although is quite short, I love the guitar intro to this song. "Leaving on A Jet Plane" a song he wrote for Peter,Paul and Mary in the late sixties is also a wonderful song. "Take Me Home Country Roads" was another big hit for this soulful singer and songwriter and when I listen to this song and the album as a whole it takes me back to a time I wish I could relive again: My childhood growing up in the 70's with all that great music that was being created by some of the world's most gifted and talented singer songwriters with John Denver being one of them. GREAT ALBUM!!!

When the original album was released in 1973, it contained only two songs that had been chart hits for John Denver. The two songs were; "Take Me Home, Country Roads," and "Rocky Mountain High." The rest of the material was considered the best songs off of his first five albums for RCA. This was marketing genius. It became a huge seller and solidified John Denver's status as a musical phenomenon.
Many songs had been re-recorded for this album reflecting John's growth as a performer. The melancholy ballad "Sunshine On My Shoulders" was culled from this album, having been ignored on the album "Poems, Prayers and Promises." With a string section added to the track it became John Denver's first number one hit.
Despite the fact that at the time there was only a few bonafide hits on the album, all of the songs have become well-recognized treasures from John Denver's astonishing career. Songs such as "Rhymes and Reasons" and "Starwood in Aspen," "The Eagle and The Hawk" could have been forgotten if they had not had been included on this album. That would have been a shame. I'm grateful that RCA recognized the quality of the material John had produced and showcased it on this album. This truly is an album that personifies the beauty, the profoundness, and depth, of a great musician.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Heart, Soul, and Mind of John Denver Oct. 1 2002
Format:Audio CD
To hear the songs on albums 1 and 2 are to gain an insight into the mind, soul, and especially the heart of John Denver. To listen to the words especially allows us to know how he felt about various subjects, especially the love ballads he wrote and sang to one he called "my sweet lady" in one of his songs. You come away with a new appreciation for his talent which could not be described as "learned", but given by a higher source, for no one before him has expressed in song the deep feelings he unashamedly voices in his songs.
I appreciate him more now than I was able to while he was alive. Like a few before him, he exploded like a fireworks in the sky, lit our dark night up with awe and appreciation, and was just as quickly gone. The talent he exhibited to the world made him a shining star that belonged to the world while he was with us.
His love ballad words are so touching that I found myself using them to express my feelings for my wife in a recorded tape I made in her honor with John's songs....an act I am unable to express myself because none of us are able to express this type of talent that he possessed.
My only regret is that he is no longer with us to brighten up our world as he did when he was with us. We need a John Denver in our lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Denver is great!
I am old enough to remember the great songs that John Denver wrote, played and sang. I would have bought this album for "Take me home country roads" alone. Read more
