Album Review

Released in 1973, Greatest Hits only sums up a handful of years of hitmaking for John Denver, but what years those were. Between 1971 and 1973, Denver actually didn't have that many hits, but they were songs that defined him — "Take Me Home, Country Roads," "Rocky Mountain High," and "Sunshine on My Shoulders." Those three songs, along with "Leaving on a Jet Plane" — which he wrote but Peter, Paul & Mary made into a standard — are all here, along with seven other early songs recorded between 1969 and 1973 that may not be familiar to the average casual fan, but all capture Denver's warm folk-pop at its best. There may be more hits on Greatest Hits, Vol. 2, but this collection is every bit as engaging as that record.

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!
