14 Songs, 48 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Even though John Denver's solo career was only four years old when this collection came out, it's overflowing with songs that defined '70s AM radio. His easygoing blend of country, folk, and pop achieved perfection on tunes like the back-porch sing-along "Take Me Home, Country Roads," the orchestra-sweetened ballad "Sunshine On My Shoulders," and the soaring, folk-tinged "Rocky Mountain High." And less ubiquitous cuts like "The Eagle and the Hawk" are no less high-flying and sun-dappled.

John Denvers Greatest Hits

Poems ,Prayers and Promises! As I heard this gentle tune again, I was forced to hold back tears . Not that
I am subject to sentimental outbursts, but in those times our lives were wrapped in music , our experiences
were imprinted on us by the music we shared with special people. My Susan's passing was one of the hardest
things that I ever had to deal with, and hearing these special songs, and playing them for her mom brought
her closer to us than anything else. I appreciate that ITunes Genious reminded me to look back . L.S.W.

John Denver,s Great Songs

My sons my wife and myself have been great fans of John Denver from the day his new songs came out until today. Now with the advent of
iTunes we very much enjoy all his songs again. I am 80 years old tears came to my eyes to relive this time-period wher this great artist still lived and blessed us with his beautiful self-composed music.

Love John Denver!

This seriously takes me back to the cassette tapes my dad used to play of John Denver. I knew all the words and this just brought it all back. Almost all his greatest songs are on here. Good job iTunes!
