However, I did realize eventually that this DVD covers mainly JD's RCA career, which ended around 1986. That might be because the vast majority of his hits came from the 1970s, but even the concert footage included on the DVD (four songs) are from the 1970s and early 1980s. There is nothing here from 1986 to 1997 (the year he died). While that's not absolutely necessary, I suppose, it felt to me like it was lacking something.
Still, despite this, I enjoyed the program. And most Denver fans will too. Artists like Denver don't come around very often.
In addition to footage of John singing, there is also commentary by him about his songs and his love of nature as well as interviews with John's wife Annie, some of the musicians who played with him and others in the music industry. In a particularly moving segment Annie remembers all the unusual places she has heard "Annie's Song," from a square in Venice to an elevator in Japan. Someone else comments that Wagner had one piece of wedding music while John had two!
Looking at this DVD once again, as always I am amazed at how John Denver seemingly never aged. Of course now he belongs to the ages although he left us far too soon. It is useless to speculate about how many other great songs he would have written as he became older and more venerable, the elder statesman of the folk/pop world. Near the end of this not-to-be-missed tribute to John Denver, his wife comments softly that "we miss him." She speaks for thousands of the rest of us in that nostalgic, sad moment.
