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.Read more ›
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.
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.

It only has one or two of his major hits and lots of songs you have never heard of. I never play it for that reason.Published 4 months ago by Amazon Customer
