Editorial Reviews

John Denver is one of the most successful and best loved recording artists of the 20th century. His easy going manner, fine voice, superb songwriting and dedication to environmental issues all combined to build a huge global fan base that has continued to grow since his untimely death in a plane crash in 1997. This superb 5-disc set is the definitive John Denver DVD release. There are three complete live performances with full band from Australia in 1977, Japan in 1981 and England in 1986. These are complemented by a solo acoustic performance from Japan in 1984 and his performances at Farm Aid from 1985, 1987 & 1990. The final disc has two hour long documentaries made by John Denver, his 1990 Earth Day program about environmental issues and his 1972 show about the Bighorn sheep of his beloved Rocky Mountains.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Think I Appreciate Him More Every Year October 1, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've always loved John and his music. However, in the years since his tragic death, I've actually come to appreciate him more. As I progress in my own life experience, I can understand with greater clarity just how powerful this man was.

Time and again, he made choices that had an adverse effect upon his career. There are so many times when he stayed true to himself, even though he understood that there would be a price to pay. RCA thought he should go ahead and 'define' himself as a country artist. But he had no interest in restricting himself to one particular genre, no matter how profitable it might be.

With his wholesome, cleancut image,and his undeniably pristine worldview, he could have been the preeminent superstar for America's churchgoing community. However, his spirituality was unconventional, and he said so. Again, this cost him heavily. I know. I'm from the Deep South, and I know Fundamentalist types who despise him for this very reason.

Now, between those 2 audiences, that's an awful lot of money that he simply gave up.

Then, in the 80's, he spoke out forcefully at the Senate Hearings on censorship. John certainly had nothing to gain from any of this. If anything, he stood to LOSE fans. But he went to the mat for free speech, when some of the people who had the most to gain.............. stayed quietly on the sidelines.

I think he was an impressive man. Of course, I'm not looking to make him out to be more than a man. He had his flaws, like all of us. But, at the end of the day, he handled money, fame, and influence in a way that others would do well to emulate.

When it comes to his music, what can you say? I mean, you just don't run out of great songs. He was such an incredible talent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Come and see why John Denver was a superstar!!! October 22, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have been a hard core John Denver fan for most of my life. So I was thrilled to receive this 5 DVD box set and felt it was long overdue. Although the Wild Life concert was also an excellent staging of John Denver's music the concerts presented in this box set gives the viewer a more complete look at the pure artistry and talent John Denver delivered while performing live. In today's over produced concerts with elaborate dancers and stage productions the simplicity and brilliance of a John Denver concert shines through on each disk. It is a rare performer who can hold an audience in the palm of his hand while mesmerizing, thrilling and touching them with just his songs, his personality and a small backing band.

The quality of the DVDs are spectacular. Eagle Rock did a great job restoring the footage to pristine quality making you feel you have a front row seat to your own JD concert which you can enjoy any time you want to. The song selections cover his greatest hits while sampling a wide variety of his lesser known but high quality material. But what soars above it all is his voice which was clear as a mountain stream and as powerful as a thunderstorm in spring.

A bonus on disk 5 are two documentaries. The first one is a 1990 Earth Day related documentary speaking of the environmental movement and its importance to us all. It stars John and is educational, quite interesting but never preachy. The second documentary is his 1972 Bighorn documentary. This is classic John Denver in his element, out in the rocky mountains learning about the Bighorn sheep and all the other animals that live there. This documentary is peppered with Johns music throughout including the tongue in cheek tune "How to say hello to a Grizzly Bear.
