By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 21 Dec. 2002
Format: Audio CD
You have to enjoy John's music a lot to want this box, but you don't have to be a fanatic. This set provides a comprehensive overview of his career from his years at RCA (which are really the only ones that matter to most people).
The first CD is interesting. It is made up entirely of tracks from Rhymes and reasons, Take me to tomorrow, Poems prayers and promises and Aerie. These were his first, second, fourth and fifth albums. The third album (Who's garden was this?) is mentioned in the accompanying booklet, but is not represented here at all. The collection starts with Leaving on a jet plane, which John wrote before he was famous. It became a huge international hit for Peter Paul and Mary. The most famous track is Take me home country roads, but there are many other great songs here. I would like to have seen his cover of Buddy Holly's Everyday and something from that third album included, but I have no complaints about what has been included.
The second CD is compiled from the next four original albums - Rocky mountain high, Farewell Andromeda, Back home again and Windsong. This was the period when John's popularity was at its peak. Many of his famous songs are on this CD, including Annie's song, Back home again, Sweet surrender, I'm sorry and Rocky mountain high. Thank God I'm a country boy, originally a track on Back home again, was later recorded live and that recording became another huge hit. It is that version which is included here, not the original studio recording.
The third CD begins with one last track from Windsong - Calypso, a tribute to Jacques Cousteau. During the period covered by this CD, John recorded two Christmas albums including one with the Muppets. Neither of these are represented here.

The country roads collection is a geat collection of Denver Classics, and many of the not so quite classics. If I have a real criticism of the collection it is that it focuses too heavily on the works for which Denver is most famous and omits some of his lesser known but arguably better recordings, like "The Wings that fly us home" from the album "Spirit". All in all though it is still a fine collection and one I am pleased to have purchased. Prepared before his death it is to be hoped that it will be supplimented by a further collection including all his works not included here.

This is a superb collection of the best of John Denver, a must have for all true JD fans, in a beautifully presented 4 set album, starting at the beginning of his career and working through to the end,a total of 79 songs. It includes information and photographs of JD and is in my opinion great value for money.

I enjoyed this extensive set a lot. Like others I missed the familiar rerecordings from Best of.. Album which are superior to the versions here, but on the plus side I heard lots of music I was not familiar with, and was reminded of great songs like windsong and Spirit which I'd forgotten.
Very glad to have this in the car to sing along with!
