John Denver's music was something of a reaction against the post-psychedelia excesses of 70's rock. He offered a bright, sunny alternative in his folkish pop songs, with lyrics focusing on the grandeur of nature, particularly the mountain region that gave him his name. Tunes like "Rocky Mountain High" and "Country Roads," with their cheery outlook and immediate accessibility, made Denver a major pop star in the 70's, and his music came to define an entire subculture of 70's mainstream pop, the heartland soft-rock sound that dominated AM radio in the middle part of that decade.
Most of Denver's biggest hits are included on this live album, which doubles as a best-of. There are renditions of Denver favorites like "Annie's Song," "Leaving On A Jet Plane" and "Sunshine On My Shoulders." Rounding out this double disc are lesser-known tunes like Steve Gillete's 60's folk masterpiece "Darcy Farrow" as well as "I'd Rather Be A Cowboy" and "I'm Sorry," both previously unreleased.
