Format: Audio CD
This is a wonderful compilation of live versions of John Denver's greatest hits even as he was continuing to make them. . Here we see the monster hits that propelled him into amazing popularity and superstardom in the early 1970s. In his heyday no one was outselling his albums or out-booking John for concert appearances, and considering the incredible talents on the scene at the time, that is a pretty good indication of just how popular he was, and just how universal John Denver's appeal was. No one else sang of the wide-open possibilities and seemingly limitless prospects for a good life awaiting those who would free themselves from the bonds that confined them and just dare to soar along with him in the wild open spaces.
All the tracks here are terrific, from "Take Me Home, Country Roads", the breakthrough country-pop hit that launched him onto the public stage, to "Rocky Mountain High, his paean to appreciating the beauties of nature and the natural life. He, more than any of his contemporaries, actively caught the public's imagination regarding the wonders of the natural environment, and in a time when environmental concerns were splashed all over the headlines and the evening news, John's vision of popular concern for and stewardship of the natural world was immensely important. I love all the songs here, including "Starwood In Aspen", "Rhymes And Reasons ", "Sunshine On My Shoulders", " The Eagle And The Hawk", and my own special favorite, "Poems, Prayers, And Promises". This album represents a wonderful overview of the early work of John as he thrilled a whole generation with his own perspective of a meaningful life lived in the natural splendor of nature. I know you will enjoy this live performance of many of his hits as well as all the other three of his greatest hits albums. Far out!

I have the SACD version and I swear John is standing right in my room singing and playing. Whether you have CD or SACD format this is a really great recording. If you really want an excellent live recording this is the one...look no further! John has included some very awesome melow songs, and also some very upbeat songs that make you listen more and more. I highly recommend this CD, especially the SACD version if you have an SACD player!

This CD is of The Wildlife Concert that took place in February 1995. Selected songs from that concert are included on this CD. If you had the opportunity to witness this man in concert, this collection will put you back there. You will envision John on stage singing to you once again. Its been almost 30 years since I first saw John in concert, at the height of Rocky Mt. High and Farewell Andromeda albums. This CD brings it all back and more.

I don't usually write for anything or about about anything, but cannot hold back on this one. Best I have ever heard, makes you cry when you hear it, just wonderful. Makes you remember the past, and how great it really was. In this world of things changing so fast, he is like a rock. And all the released tracks for this, is worth the price alone. If you are a John lover as I, add this today, you WILL not be sorry........

I'm always a little leary about buying live albums because you never know about the sound quality or if the songs will sound like the studio versions you love...but as soon as I heard Rocky Mt High, I knew my money was well spent. Awesome version of Calypso, as well as two great new songs by John !

I've been listening to John Denver ever since I was a baby. His music is an inspiration, and when I bought this CD it has a similar effect on me that his concert had. Because it's like he's singing for you.

This album,John Denver live, features no only his best songs but a short description of the songs in the artists' own words. You also get to hear the interaction of the crowd. Since he will never perform live again (God rest his soul) this is the next best thing.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This sixteen-song set of some of John Denver's greatest hits is probably one of the best live recordings he has done. He manages to bring out the magic of each song and never falters. Unlike most live albums that lack the clarity or depth of studio albums, this collection sounds crisp and vital due to the SACD format. It sounds as if John Denver is literally in your room. The guitar work is as crystal clear as well. Indulge yourself. This is a classic album.

Please note that this is a stereo SACD and not multi-channel. For a mult-channel SACD recording, search out "John Denver Collection" under SACD in 2008.
