Rocky Mountain High still takes me there

"John's music was absolutly timeless. I have been listening to this music for over thirty years and still have not found anything that comes close to this style of folk music! I can put on my headphones and go to the catherdral mountains of Colorado or to the strip-mines of Kentucky. I see the winter set in out west as life begins to retreat within it's self. The hot summer sun begins to rise on a new day, a day filled with wonder and excitment as the day unfolds. As I was in the military for many years, I know the joy and pain that totally consumes you when your child is born and you are nowhere to be found as in "Prisoners."
John was an origial unlike today's "Country" that is all glitter pop. John sang about what he knew and loved. He wasn't a cardboard entertainer singing cookie cutter songs.
I don't like all these new compilation cd's that are being released. You miss the little gems. Make it a point to get his original albums in their original form. John had no filler music on his projects. It was all good!
