Not his best recordings

"I have performed his music since I was 12 years old. (over 25 years ago). I know his music quite well and was looking for a good collection since most of mine were on Vinyl. These are not his originally released works. The digital remastering is actually of poor quality in my opinion. It is a great collection but if you are looking for original commercially released versions, this is not the CD to buy."
IF you buy only one John Denver CD

"This is a two CD set that spans JD's entire career. What I especially liked about this collection was Volume 1, which contains all his early material. It was digitally remastered from the original recordings, so I heard once again the songs as he first recorded them. Even his early material on Greatest Hits - Volume 1, as he said himself on the liner notes, was redone. If you want to hear how those early, early songs were originally recorded, this is the only CD that I am aware of that gives you that opportunity.For first timers to JD's music, you get both an excellent historical compilation of his songs and you also will see how his singing and phrasing have changed over the years. A must buy."
A Wonderful Collection

"I received this CD set shortly after John Denver died. Many of the tracks are from his RCA albums, and I appreciated the raw character of his earlier recordings to the mush that often came with re-releases, the orchestration, etc. Eagle and the Hawk has the original guitar and organ ending, and I do not have another CD with Aspenglow on it. I feel the songs chosen for this collection are outstanding. A great CD to have if you have no others by this incredible songwriter."
