"John's gift to the world of music under his RCA label came to a close with the release of this album- and sadly so. Here we find the seasoned songwriter and performer again on the top of his game. After releasing "Dreamland Express", an experimental album with a different feel than the ordinary Dever we all have come to love, John crafted "One World" to be among his finest. The album opens with "Love is the Master", an uplifting, upbeat, and most certain John Denver classic. As the album continues, we see the softer, honest John Denver in "Love Again", the open minded optimist in "It's a Possibility", the socially aware in "Let Us Begin" (watch out Mr. Dylan, John makes some brilliant moves with this strong dialogue between a world divided). This album showcases John's incredible scope as an artist, writer, and performer in the beauty, and grace you'd expect only from him. "Flying for Me" alone will give this album 5 stars... put it on your wish list you won't dissapointed!"
A legend and ambassador for life

"I've been an avid JD fan ever since he played solo in Cork city in 1987 (I was only 13 then). Just to be able to listen to 'Love is the Master', 'Let Us Begin', 'Love Again', and the sublime 'Flying for Me' make this on of JD's finest albums and begs the question - why did RCA drop John in the same year as such a quality release (1986) The above songs would lift even the dullest of spirits and show just why JD is, even in death, a legend and the greatest ambassador for life."

"When I bought this CD I was a little leary because the titles of the songs didn't sound like a lot of his "oldies". Well, I was so greatly suprised how well written and beatiful the songs are. A friend riding in the car when I was playing it fell in love with it. These songs each have so much to say. I highly recommend this CD. I can't believe we're coming up to the 3rd anniversary of his death."
""One World" contains some of John Denver's most thought-provoking and tear-jerking songs; for those who like his ability to combine visionnary thoughts with catchy tunes should have it in their collection."
My favorite ever!

"I originally purchased this cassette at a John Denver concert. I listened to this so much, I wore it out. I never found it in a store. I am so glad to see it here."
