Format: Audio CD
John Denver's moment was not in the confronting frustrated energy of '60s folkland - he was a global homeboy of the '70s whose light became obvious as the sun hid on CSN&Y, Dylan, S&G and everybody else. I think it was fitting that Peter Paul & Mary's final hit single, their go-away song, was Leaving on a Jet Plane / Day Is Done 45 rpm. It was mostly how America was introduced to him; that, and "Take Me Home, Country Road." It's fitting that the word "Home" is there at the beginning, too. America was tired, and ready for stillness and a mended heart.

I'm beginning to think that the best way to appreciate John Denver's music is to listen to it in a set like this, where one can compare it to itself, and hear the nuance and diversity and vision. These songs show greatness. And he was still writing evocative songs even when his records stopped selling large numbers. In a set like this, a person can begin to get his Feeling. We can experience how his songs together sneak up on our mind and heart.

There are several other Denver compilations - 2004's John Denver - Definitive All-Time Greatest Hits and the out-of-print but excellent "The Rocky Mountain Collection" from 1996 and the un-remastered 79 song "Country Roads Collection" from 1997.

This is the music that I grew up with and am now able to listen to a collected version of his music. Very happy! =)

What can I say? Any fan of John Denver will be delighted to have this compilation in their library. True, not all of
Denver's songs are included on this, or any of his cds. How I do wish a big box set of his music was available consisting
of every song he ever recorded. But till then, I am very pleased to have this set to add to my other Denver cds. This is an
excellent collection of some of his most popular tunes, along with some of his recordings that are just " good Denver". And face it,
all his songs were, and are " good Denver". I am very happy that I purchased this set.

I have listened to and loved John Denver Sense the first time Rocky Mountain High came out.
This is the worse recording that has ever been put together of his music. I have thrown the cd's into the trash. It was a complete waste of money.
