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.

My Dad always played this when on tape, in the car as I grew up from a young age, and now I love it too! John Denver music will never grow old

5.0 out of 5 stars Denver is great! Nov. 5 2013
By Jerlaw TOP 1000 REVIEWER

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. But there is much more, so much more.

4.0 out of 5 stars His almost "Greatest Hits". March 22 2004
By H3@+h
Format:Audio CD
There's no doubt that "John Denver" was great, and these are wonderful songs, but I would go with another collection. "The Best Of John Denver" is cheaper, three tracks longer, and includes "Annie's Song" and "Thank God I'm A Country Boy", which to me are essential to have. Of course it also includes "Rocky Mountain High", "Sunshine On My Shoulders", and "Take Me Home, Country Roads" as well. Both collections are great, but I think the other one is "The Best".

John Denver was one of my all time favorite artists (along with Cat Stevens and Paul Simon) of the seventy's. His music was country style pop with beautiful lyrics and melodies. This collection, although rather short on songs does include some of his most cherished hits such as "Take Me Home, Country Roads", "Rocky Mountain High", "Sunshine On My Shoulders" and "Leaving On A Jet Plane", etc. There are some newer and better collections than this that are remastered, but for the average fan this collection should suffice. John Denver will always be remembered for the beautiful music he gave us.

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!!!
