5.0 out of 5 stars Truly the very best 19 May 2009
By D. Elliott TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
In his hey-day in the 1970s, when most of this CD's tracks were recorded, the distinctive image known to fans of John Denver was his longish blond hair, cowboy attire and `granny' glasses. Since his death, without concerts or television appearances his image may not always register with the younger generation, but his music legacy lives on. Today, throughout the world his country/folk voice is immediately recognizable, and the collection of numbers on this CD will also be immediately recognized as Denver songs. It commences with `Annie's Song', one of John Denver's early compositions that immortalised his wife; and then the immensely popular `Rocky Mountain High' alluding to his adopted State of Colorado (and adopted name Denver). Other brilliant Denver compositions are `Back Home Again', `I'm Sorry', `The Music Is You', and `Matthew' plus the beautifully lilting `Cool An' Green An' Shady' and the great favourite `For Baby'. Other love songs include `Don't Close Your Eyes Tonight' and `It's Up To You'. A love influence permeates most of the numbers but John Denver is perhaps at his best for the ballad `Take Me Home Country Roads'; or when injecting melancholy as with `Polka Dots and Moonbeams'; or nostalgia as `City Of New Orleans'; or humour as `Please Daddy'; or more breezy numbers as `Grandma's Feather Bed' and `Late Night Radio'; or any supplementary feelings that may be desired. The final track `Friends With You' confirms John Denver's wide ranging supremacy with a sensitive song coupled to a rousing chorus approach. There is more - and this CD `The Very Best of John Denver' truly does embrace many of his finest recordings.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'ONE OF THE 'COUNTRY-GREATS' 11 Mar 2014
By rbmusicman TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
'John Denver' was a talented song-writer, great vocalist and talented musician.
In the U.K. only 'Annie's Song' made a real impact for 'John Denver' reaching
number 1' (singles chart) as did it in the U.S.
'Olivia Newton John' had a big hit with 'Take me home Country Roads' in the
U.K. which of course part was written by 'John Denver'
In truth his album releases in the U.K drew more interest overall, whilst in the
U.S. 'John Denver' he achieved '30' top forty hits, 18 of which reached the Top
'10' of those '9' reached the Top spot.....quite a impressive record for a country
artist, I believe 'Country-Music' is embraced in the U.S more so than in the U.K.
For me, it's pleasant and enjoyable easy-listening.
Some of the stand-out tracks on-board include :- 'Annie's Song' 'Rocky Mountain
High' 'Take me Home Country Roads' 'For Baby(for Bobbie) 'Got my Heart set
On You' 'Don't Close Your Eyes Tonight' 'Please Daddy' 'Back Home Again' and
'I'd Rather be a Cowboy' Just a sample of the many great listening material on
board.....again, as is the case with many artists, you'd probably need to collect four
or five such albums to collect all his best know releases.
A great collector's item.....great music to 'chill' with.
Sadly, 'John' died when his two-seater aircraft plunged into the water of 'Monterey
Bay' October 13th 1997.............he was '53-years old'
The music lives on.

I have really ordered ' The Best of John Denver' and received this instead. Certainly it is way beolw the reord I requested and seems to be a hotch potch of various tracks cobbled together in order to produce another JD record.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rocky Mountain High 5 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Many people do not know of John Denver. I was lucky enough to see him at Wembley in the 70s. He captured in song the wild and beautiful mountains of the region that he knew and loved. Tragically he died when testing a new light plane that he was testing at the age of 53.
