If you are going to own only one John Denver recording, this is the one to buy. I have been a huge fan of John's since I was a kid (some twenty years ago). I've always found that most live recordings just do not sound good. It's a tough way to record music, there are no second chances, etc. But this cd is an exception. The music is of a very high quality. I actually prefer many of the songs on here (Rocky Mountain High; Poems, Prayers and Promises) over the studio versions. This cd contains most of the classics, and with John singing better (in my opinion) than on the earlier studio versions. I couldn't recommend this cd higher. It's the best John Denver cd I've heard, and it's the best live cd I've heard.

It has always been a source of frustration to find a favorite double album condensed into a "single, specially priced CD." Fortunately, in the case of "EWJD," this has finally been corrected. Granted, the original edit deleted only two songs, (Today; Boy From the Country), but to anyone who owned the LP, these were far from throwaway tracks. They were, in fact, among the best songs in the collection! So to begin, I say kudos for restoring a wonderful concert album to its original greatness.
On "An Evening With John Denver," John is just as we remember him: warm, disarming, engaging - a gifted storyteller. His voice is strong and unmistakably unique. The song selection ranges from sunny ballads (Mother Nature's Son; Grandma's Featherbed), to catchy new entries (Annie's Other Song; Pickin' the Sun Down) to humorous observations (Forest Lawn; Saturday Night in Toledo, Ohio) to the obvious soaring hits (Take Me Home, Country Roads; Rocky Mountain High). It is indeed 80 minutes of listening pleasure.
On the other hand...
As nifty an idea that is the bonus cut, I only wish these could have been chosen a bit more carefully. For instance, why was it necessary to include a second version of "Saturday Night in Toledo, Ohio?" Side note: Why was the song renamed "Toledo" when the album first came out on CD, and why is it presented here under two different titles? Nitpicking aside, the Red Rocks version, in my opinion, is actually better than the Universal Amphitheater version. However, "Intro" simply means John saying "Good evening!" A nice touch would have been to include the oft-told story about the three folks from Toledo who once paid John a visit back stage after a concert.

The first concert I ever went to happened to be a John Denver concert, where he performed in front of giant screens that showed pictures of nature and my girlfriend had to explain to me what that strange smoky smell in the air happened to be. This 1975 "double-album" show cases Denver at his best, with live performances of basically every hit he had up to that time, from "Take Me Home, Country Roads" to "Farewell Andromeda (Welcome to My Morning)" and "Thank God I'm a Country Boy." The concert was recorded at the California Universal Amphitheater in August-September of 1974 and is actually a typical performance because Denver is being backed by an orchestra this time around. The boys in the band are Steve Weisberg on guitars, Dick Kniss of bass, Herb Lovell on drums, Hal Blaine doing percussions, and John Sommers filling in on everything from guitar and banjo to fiddle and mandolin.
There is a sort of thematic arrangement to the songs, which clearly show the various strengths of Denver's music. Beginning the concert with "Farewell Andromeda" seems an obvious choice ("Welcome to my morning, Welcome to my Happiness"), but notice how he uses humorous songs like "Toldeo" and "Grandma's Feather Bed" to set up the pathos of the beautiful "Annie's Song." Ballads are used to set up the more powerful songs, such as "The Eagle and the Hawk." The only thing this live album reaffirms for me is that John Denver's best songs were never his big hits from the pop charts but songs like "Poems, Prayers, and Promises.

My parents got this on Album in 1975 when I was only 2. They tell me I insisted on their playing it for me before I went to sleep.First words of childhood?You guessed it,John Denver lyrics(kind of).Purchased the CD three years ago and have enjoyed it a great deal.One thing the listener can pick up on is the astonishing sound quality of the recording.The Album sounded just as good(unless you tortured it like I did)and more modern recordings dont have this warmth.Another feature is the beautiful orchestra- it adds atmosphere the other (studio) recordings didn`t capture.Look at the inside of the booklet(pictures of John`s folks and whatnot)and you will see this is a precious gift.I would like to say that my favorite songs are "Matthew","Country Roads",and "Poems,Prayers,and Promises".If you`re not a music fan who insists on having whatever is "Relevant"this week,get a copy of this and love it for all time.
