"I found this to be a great CD for any John Denver fan. With songs like Rocky Mountain High and Follow Me, it's hard to say anything bad about this CD except one thing....it's too short. Other CD's like it I would recommend would be The Best Of John Denver. I couldn't pass up songs like For You and Dreamland Express to Thank God I'm A Country Boy. I do wish Sunshine On My Shoulders would have been left off of the Best Of John Denver.....Otherwise it's a gem!"

"The very essence of John Denver is presented on this album of his most famous compositions. Leaving On A Jet Plane and Goodbye Again are different in that they deviate from his well-known pastoral style and are moving on a more personal level. One can just about smell the pure country air on songs like Take Me Home Counry Roads, Starwood In Aspen and Rocky Mountain High. Denver's talent for the soaring, inspiring melody is enhanced by his poetic gift. Although Denver is not considered one of the more profound songwriters, he definitely made a valuable contribution. As an exponent of melodious folk pop in the bucolic vein, he was superb. The only big hit missing here is Annie's Song. This album is all you need if you just want his most memorable songs."
