As part of the soundtrack to VH1's Behind the Music series, this John Denver collection contains 18 of his top hits. Obvious material like "Take Me Home, Country Roads," "Rocky Mountain High," and "Sunshine on My Shoulders," are included with lesser heard (although chart making) songs "My Sweet Lady," "How Can I Leave You Again," "I Want to Live," and "Shanghai Breezes." A more thorough picture of Denver's later music would not have omitted early '80s hits like "Dreamland Express" or "Some Days Are Diamonds (Some Days Are Stone)." ~ Al Campbell
