Oddly, this beautifully melancholy album has never been released on CD in the US. It took me 3 years to find a Japanese copy; expensive but well worth it. To a true John Denver fan, Aerie is the holy grail.
Treat yourself for Christmas! That's what I did...:-)
I am the Hawk and there's blood on my feathers But time is still turning, they soon will be dry.
And all those who see me, and all who believe in me share in the freedom I feel when I fly."
The piano at the end of this song make the whole album. Awesome work. Denver was anything but shallow. His lyrics and songs will live in our hearts forever.
John only wrote three full-length songs for this album (Starwood in Aspen, All of my memories, The eagle and the hawk) plus two brief pieces (60 second song for a bank, Tools). but the album also includes three songs that Bill Danoff (best known for Afternoon delight) wrote for John (Friends with you, She won't let me fly away, Readjustment blues) and wonderful covers of Everyday (made famous by Buddy Holly), Casey's last ride (Kris Kristofferson), City of New Orleans (Steve Goodman) and Blow up your TV (John Prine).
While all the songs are of a high quality, the album did not produce a big hit single that would have inspired lots of people to buy the album back in 1971. It remains an under-appreciated album, but is still a classic album as far as I'm concerned.
