Album Review

Listeners acquainted with the John Denver of "Rocky Mountain High" and "Sunshine on My Shoulders" may be surprised to discover a slightly more gritty folkster in some of these album cuts. Kris Kristofferson's "Casey's Last Ride" is delivered as a spare, ghostly lament, while "She Won't Let Me Fly Away" has a bluesy, urban feel. "Readjustment Blues" is a sobering account of the unwelcome treatment experienced by soldiers returning home from the Vietnam War, and is highlighted by Paul Griffin's haunting organ playing. However, Denver's trademark uplifting nature-oriented songs make up a good half of the tracks. The soaring "The Eagle and the Hawk," in fact, is the centerpiece of the album. Though it's a less well-known work in his oeuvre, Aerie is worth seeking out to get a more complete picture of the artist's range.

This album is a must

what I like most about this album is it is very spare, not many lush orchestrations. Just JD's one of a kind of a voice, and a few instruments. It is has a real bluegrass, folk feel. I downloaded it for Spanish Pipedream, I loved the rest. We miss you John.

Amazing album!

I recently discovered John Denver's music when I purchased a record player and went shopping for old albums. The only Denver song I was familiar with was the classic "Rocky Mountain High". "Aerie" was one of two albums of his that I found. I can't get enough of it, and just purchased it on iTunes so i can listen to it when I don't have access to the record player.
