What's wrong with John Denver

"I could never understand why country music was so against John Denver. In the 70's when Denver was big, he sounded more country than most of the music at the time coming out of Nashville. Charlie Rich threw a fit at the CMAs, but wasn't ole Charlie just as non country as Dever was. "Back Home Again, Some Days are Diamonds, I'm Sorry, Thank God I'm A Country Boy" are all stone country songs that still to this day are looked down on.This collection is pretty good. As far as I am concerened, you could take any recording John Denver ever made and call it country. And also, any greatest hits or best of collection of John Denver is never complete. This is at least better than those cheesy packaged greatest hits cd's from the 70's and early 80's. This makes a great cd for your car, now collection wise, it is for novice's. Go out and get one of those boxed sets if you are serious about music."
John Denver-His Rocky Mountain Highness

"Thirty years ago,an unknown singer-songwriter by the name of John Denver,had his very first top 40 hit,"Take Me Home,Country Roads"-That initial hit paved the way for a string of hit albums,singles,& sold-out concerts around the world-Critics were quick to dismiss John's music as wimpy & devoid of meaning-Despite the negative press,he had a tremendous legion of fans from all corners of the planet-This collection features all the songs that made John famous,including four certified Billboard chart toppers "Sunshine On My Shoulders" (1974),"Annie's Song" (1974),"Thank God,I'm A Country Boy" (1975), & "I'm Sorry" (1975).John's final top 40 hit was "Shanghai Breezes" in 1982-Unfortunately,that song didn't make it onto this collection-In October 1997,John died in a plane crash off the coast of northern California-While his voice has been silenced,his music,however,will live on-Recommended for fans & for anyone who appreciates good music."
Beautiful music... by a beautiful man!!

"This CD is good enough to explain John's music carrier. It would be better if this had contained more songs such as "Calypso", "Rocky mountain high" and "My sweet lady", though. Anyway, whenever I listen to this album, I can feel the spirit of John. Beautiful melodies and words... I can easily realize he lived a 'righteous life'. In particular, John is expressing his desire for the 'profound' truth for our lives in the song of "Looking for a space", which is one of my favorite.This is a must have CD for anyone who loves music and loves nature and "purity". Good liner notes.John, I sincerely thank you for your great legacy for all of us. And I miss you!!"
