Editorial Reviews

Arguably one of the most beloved American performers of the 20th century, John Denver had a career that saw him sell over 40 million albums worldwide while winning numerous awards, including 2 Grammy® Awards, 3 AMA's, 1 Emmy and 2 CMA's. "Rocky Mountain High: Live In Japan" is a 1981 concert from his 7-show tour of Japan and features a wonderful selection of hits from his career, including 4 of his 5 #1 hits: "Annie's Song", "Calypso", "Sunshine On My Shoulders" & "Thank God I'm A Country Boy".

5.0 out of 5 stars exceeded expectations December 21, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD blew me away. I have every DVD I could ever get my hands on of JOhn denver...and most of the latest ones are poor qulaity rehashes of old stuff. THis has excellent quality for both sound and picture...and Its John at his very best...his voice is strong..the band with him isnt too over produced..... Sometimes concert videos are full of shots of the audience ( ugh that sony one comes to mind) and that is not what I want to see. I want to see the performers....Thats what this DVD gives. Its John and the band having fun...he forgets the words on "dancing with the mountains" and laughs thru it. Seeing Hal Blaine really brings back some memories. All of my expectations were exceeded 10 fold! One of the reasons I bought this was because I saw John on this tour ( not in Japan!), and this recording was just exciting and happy. Its a great samplling of his work. Any one who has this will enjoy it no matter if they are a long time loyal fan like me or just a casual JD listener.

3.0 out of 5 stars An Unexpectedly Good DVD December 16, 2009
Format:DVD
John Denver - Rocky Mountain High Live In Japan
For one of the most prolific and successful writers and performers of his time, Denver was an outsider in most musical circles. He was considered too pop by Country fans, too sentimental by Country Rock fans and too wimpy to be taken seriously by Rock fans. But millions of music fans and musicians not hung-up on labels came to appreciate Denver as a great writer and performer. This DVD captures Denver at his peak - and in a setting that really conveys what a compelling artist he was. On a simple, understated stage Denver manages to mesmerize an audience in Japan with songs rooted in a foreign culture and language. The fact that so many in the audience know every song is remarkable. So is his band, which includes the masterful but understated guitarists James Burton and Herb Peterson, drummer Hal Blaine and Jim Horn on saxophone and flute. The audio and video quality of the DVD make this 1981 recording seem much more recent, thanks to outstanding 5:1 surround audio and video restoration. This 18 song performance of most all of his strongest songs gives us a chance to hear and appreciate his strength as a writer and performer and, quite possibly, to to elevate our opinion of Denver's music.

5.0 out of 5 stars John and Renee Armand! June 24, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This concert was recently broadcast on PBS. As a John Denver fan (and what Baby
Boomer isn't?) I certainly enjoyed it. In a lot of live performances it is easy to tell
that the artist is bored at having to perform his "classics" yet once again -- not so
with John Denver! He sings every song at this concert with love and joy, everything
is so fresh.
I have most of the songs on this cd on other tapes and cds, so I didn't think about
buying it until the camera found Renee Armand. An absolutely gorgeous lady with
an astonishing voice. She did "Fly Away" with John, and I was floored. When
John introduced her, he said she had the voice of an angel - I certainly agree. So glad to have
belatedly discovered her. I only wish she would have been featured a bit more.
Watching John perform on a Japanese style set was an unusual and nice touch.
Amazon has this cd for about thirteen bucks. I ordered it with some books and chose the
"super saver" free shipping option. Everything arrived, as usual, just a few days later. Can't beat the
price, can't beat the concert. Don't miss this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brings Back Memories May 23, 2011
Format:DVD
I attended MANY John Denver concerts through his career, including his "Rocky Mountain High" Tour in the States. This video brings back memories of that, as well as sadness for what we lost with his death. This video delivered excellence, even on my old TV and DVD player. The audio came out better than on my modest-quality music system. It is a great addition for someone wanting some video of Denver's earlier work. Great quality. I was very pleased. Well worth the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great DVD for John Denver fans June 3, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent DVD for those who enjoy John Denver's music. It is a collection of most of his hits, probably at the height of his career. Both the sound and video is high quality and his voice is wonderfully clear. Denver doesn't interact too much with the audience, mainly because of the language difference where the concert was held I assume, so it is mainly him and his band moving on with one song after another. But that doesn't detract from hearing Denver's wonderful voice and he is well-supported by his band and back-up singers.

If you like John Denver, this DVD is highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars 1981 - probably not his best year January 29, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am a huge JD fan. It was painfully obvious to me that he was not all there. This is the guy who always smiled...but, IMHO he seems down, strained, and tired in this performance. A small amount of research (album notes and Wikipedia) revealed that his divorce/separation with Annie was in full swing/very freshly resolved at this point (divorce finalized in 1982). The intermittent grainy video and grainy concert screen were big distractions for me too. I'm sorry to the other posters, but I think the would agree if they watched and listened a little more carefully with these things in mind. Annie's Song is especially tough to watch (I have 5 other videos + live concert memories to compare to).
