5.0 out of 5 stars The Best of the Best April 19, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I consider John Denver the best singer/song writer/lyricist of my lifetime, and he had stiff competition, for sure. This particular set, which I have on cassette tapes (um, these came out after vinyls, around the time of 8-tracks, and before CDs--for those a bit younger), contains the best versions of his best songs. I've heard other productions, either from other recording sessions, or such as he rerecorded years later. There is a reason the versions on this set are the best, and are the ones released originally--they are the best.

I mean this to the point that I don't really enjoy other[re]recordings of his works that much. They are frustrating to listen to, just like someone else did a cover of John's songs, except in this case, he covered his own, and should have left them alone. Covers just don't work, even when done by the original artist.

Get this if you can find it. Or by the original albums, from which these were taken.

Here's what I LOVE about this CD: It is very refreshing & rare to find the shorter Hit Single versions (vs. the longer Hit Album versions) on CD, and especially hard to find them on the same CD. This CD, "The Very Best of John Denver" (1994), includes 3 of these shorter Hit Single versions EXACTLY as you heard them on the radio in the 1970's:

1. Thank God I'm a Country Boy (LIVE) (2.51 Duration in iTunes) (Cuts off the EXTRA, EXTRA fiddle playing going on at the end)
2. Sunshine On My Shoulders (3.20 Duration in iTunes)
3. Fly Away (3.04 Duration in iTunes)

For those of you who listen to their music via digital music players (iPods, etc): For #1 above, you can purchase the shorter Single Hit version that you heard on the radio in the Amazon Digital Music store from 2 different John Denver albums: "The Country Roads Collection" OR "Take Me Home, The John Denver Story." For #2 and #3 above, the shorter Single Hit versions that you heard on the radio are NOT available for purchase in the Amazon Digital store (As of 7/16/14). That means that if you want these durations of #2 and #3, you have to buy this CD and import them into iTunes (or whatever your digital music software is).

Enjoy the music!

1.0 out of 5 stars Got this for my mom! July 1, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I got this, for a Xmas gift for my Mom and they only game me one CD in the package.
Amazon was good and gave me my money back, but still this was uncool of them, and I know my mom was looking forward to playing this!
