CD Reviews

Better than the first!
John A. Kuczma | Marietta, GA USA | 05/07/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"John Denver's Greatest Hits, Volume II, delivers one of the rarest situations in musical compilations: a second GH collection that is better than the first.This disk contains 12 tracks which represent the full range of Denver's tremendous talents. There are wonderful, heart-tugging ballads like Annie's Song and Fly Away; tongue-in-cheek good-natured ditties like Thank God I'm a Country Boy; and the beautiful, multi-tiered tribute to Jacques Cousteau, Calypso. The only reason this collection is rated at 5-stars is that 6-stars isn't available. Absolutely outstanding!"
Of course it's great!

"Of course all the songs on a greatest hits album would be great, but I think ALL of John Denver's songs are great, not just the ones on here. My mom gave this to me for a gift. I encourage you to buy Poems, Prayers and Promises, Farewell Andromeda, Back Home Again, Windsong, and Spirit. There's many many more beautiful songs where these came from."
The Second Of Three Terrific Greatest Hits Albums By John!
Barron Laycock | Temple, New Hampshire United States | 09/04/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the second of three albums of John Denver's greatest hits released even as he was continuing to make them. Here we see the additional monster hits that kept him in a position of preeminence, popularity and superstardom in the 1970s. In his heyday no one was outselling his albums or out-booking John for concert appearances, and considering the incredible talents on the scene at the time, that is a pretty good indication of just how popular he was, and just how universal John Denver's appeal was. No one else sang of the wide-open possibilities and seemingly limitless possibilities for a good life awaited those who would free themselves from the bonds that confined them and just dare to soar along with him in the wild open spaces. All the tracks here are terrific, from "Annie's Song", the lovely love song about his beautiful wife, to "Welcome to My Morning", to "Looking For Space", another of his many paeans to appreciating the beauties of nature and the natural life. He, more than any of his contemporaries, actively caught the public's imagination regarding the wonders of the natural environment, and in a time when environmental concerns were splashed all over the headlines and the evening news, John's vision of popular concern for and stewardship of the natural world was immensely important. I love all the songs here, including "Fly Away", "Calypso", "This Old Guitar", " My Sweet Lady", and my own special favorite, "I'm Sorry". This album represents a wonderful overview of the early work of John as he thrilled a whole generation with his own perspective of a meaningful life lived in the natural splendor of nature. I know you will enjoy this as well as the other two in this three album series of John's greatest hits. Far out!"
