The Best of John Denver Live captures the singer at his charity Wildlife Concert in 1995. Denver runs through many of his best-known songs ("Take Me Home, Country Roads," "Rocky Mountain High," "Sunshine on My Shoulders," "Annie's Song") as well as two songs ("I'm Sorry," "I Think I'd Rather Be a Cowboy") that he previously had not recorded. It's a pleasant enough record, but the performance isn't particularly noteworthy, and even collectors will find it rather inconsequential.
Sloppy Album Reviewing
Sorry to start by reviewing the review but this is sloppy work. I’m no John Denver Zealot but even I know that 'I’m sorry’ and ‘…rather be a cowboy’ had been recorded before and a bit of digging turned up the dates and albums (Farewell Andromeda (’73) and Windsong (’75) respectively). The album itself is OK...worse artists singing worse songs pack out arenas these days but I guess nobody ever improved their street cred by defending the work of John Denver!
