I'm a huge John Denver fan. I was reluctant to buy this but I bought it anyway and I'm very glad I did. I had goosebumps throughout this entire 3 CD set. I've seen John Denver in concert with the entire band and orchestra and that was brilliant. But to hear John Denver singing his songs with just a guitar is something else. This collection makes you wish you were there. In fact, listening to this you feel as if you are there. This is probably the most beautiful live John Denver CD ever released. Forget the orchestra and band, John does brilliantly on his own with just him and his guitar. He sings at least 30 of his hits from his entire career. The feelings you feel listening to this is out of this world. John Denver is one of those artists that always delivers and makes you feel a part of his performance. This CD is a 3 CD set that comes in a tin box but that doesn't matter. It's not what the CD is contained in. It's what's contained in the CDs themselves and believe me, you don't want to miss this collection. This is a must for anyone so buy the CD, put on the CD player, kick back and enjoy the show.

John Denver is my favorite performer of all time and has been since 1970. I don't have ALL of his recordings but I DO have 48 of them.
The reason this 3-CD set has become my favorite is that it is John all by himself, playing either his guitar or piano. There is NOTHING to distract from that incredible voice he had.
The recording is of a landmark concert performed in Moscow in June 1985. The sound quality is excellent.
Were I asked by someone to recommend recordings of John I would first suggest two live performances --- "Unplugged In the U.S.S.R." and then "An Evening With John Denver." THEN I would suggest some of his studio albums.
John had an incredible voice and these CDs are a showcase of his wonderful talent.
I find it heartbreaking that we lost John so soon ...... and I mourn the loss of all the beautiful music he still had inside him.
I recommend this 3-CD set to both ardent fans AND newcomers. You will NOT be disappointed.

The world is a much sadder place without John Denver. But we still have his essence, his music. I often find myself longing for new songs that I know will never come. But recently I discovered Unplugged In The USSR. THIS, is as close as I will ever get. Any artist performing "unplugged" is usually a treat and this is no exception. Just John and his guitar, no back-up, no orchestra, no drums, no tambourine. For someone who loves to play guitar, hearing the pure sound of John's playing is awe inspiring. Ever want your own personal concert? This is it. Thank you Ron Deutschendorf, you've given me something of John that I will cherish forever.

OK, here's the scoop. The content is great. I am a huge John Denver fan and these are his best songs, recorded live and slightly different than the originals but better.
The weird thing is the CD labels are mis-marked, none of the songs match up to the way they are listed on the label???
Still, a great buy and delivered quickly!

I have only lately discovered John Denver's voice and music. I've nearly cleaned Amazon out of its JD collection! I'm like the reviewer who said she wished there were more of both still coming down the pike. What a wonderful voice. What impressive songwriting. What a simply great man. I, too, couldn't figure out how to play the DVD portion of the 3rd disc until I tried it on my fairly new laptop. Then it played just fine. I have come to appreciate all recordings of JD's concert performances in preferance to the studio albums. The synergy created between audience and John produces a high for both. For old fans and new ones, this Unplugged in the USSR is very nearly the very best of John Denver. All alone, just John and his guitar, a glorious private concert. His voice is pure sound and the quality of the recording is perfect. How is it that it was shelved for 20 years??!! You cannot go wrong! It would be an Amazon bargain at twice the price.
