John Denver is one of the most successful and best loved recording artists of the 20th century. His easy going manner, fine voice, superb songwriting and dedication to environmental issues all combined to build a huge global fanbase that has continued to grow since his untimely death in a plane crash in 1997. This superb 5 disc set is the definitive John Denver DVD release. There are three complete live performances with full band from Australia in 1977, Japan in 1981 and England in 1986. These are complemented by a solo acoustic performance from Japan in 1984 and his performances at Farm Aid from 1985, 1987 & 1990. The final disc has two hour long documentaries made by John Denver, his 1990 Earth Day programme about environmental issues and his 1972 show about the Bighorn sheep of his beloved Rocky Mountains.

He was born in the summer of his 27th year

Comin' home to a place he'd never been before

He left yesterday behind him, you might say he was born again

You might say he found a key for every door

When he first came to the mountains his life was far away

On the road and hangin' by a song

But the string's already broken and he doesn't really care

It keeps changin' fast and it don't last for long

But the Colorado rocky mountain high

I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky

The shadow from the starlight is softer than a lullabye

Rocky mountain high

He climbed cathedral mountains, he saw silver clouds below

He saw everything as far as you can see

And they say that he got crazy once and he tried to touch the sun

And he lost a friend but kept his memory

Now he walks in quiet solitude the forest and the streams

Seeking grace in every step he takes

His sight has turned inside himself to try and understand

The serenity of a clear blue mountain lake

And the Colorado rocky mountain high

I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky

You can talk to God and listen to the casual reply

Rocky mountain high

Now his life is full of wonder but his heart still knows some fear

Of a simple thing he cannot comprehend

Why they try to tear the mountains down to bring in a couple more

More people, more scars upon the land

And the Colorado rocky mountain high

I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky

I know he'd be a poorer man if he never saw an eagle fly

Rocky mountain high

It's Colorado rocky mountain high

I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky

Friends around the campfire and everybody's high

Rocky mountain high

Always, I really mean, always great to hear Denver's music. My dad loved his concert videos they would play on PBS. His voice is etched in my memory as a kid. Some of his songs are like part of the branches that bend in the forests he sang about, , the river's rolling along the blue sky full and going on forever. Take Me Home Country Road one of the sweetest songs ever written. I grew up listening to Zappa/Mothers, The Dead, The Stones, The Allman Brothers, Pink Floyd, Dylan, Neil Young, but John Denver always crept in easily.

"Ya know he'd be a poorer man if he never seen an eagle fly" truer words have never been spoken.

The following comments are some of the most pleasant I have ever come across. Apparently John Denver fans are all nice, even on the internet :,)

They say that he got crazy once and he tried to touch the sun and lost the friend that kept his memory...I've always felt like this song is about a person who experimented with drugs and then changed his life around with the helping hand of God and nature.

His song "Back home again" is my favourite and this one too. His songs lyrics are poetic and simple. This song which I heard since the age of 16 (I'm now 40) aspired me to visit Aspen, Colorado in 2010. Denver had been right, the beauty of the Rockies kind of cast a spell on me. It was during that time that I really value the lyrics of this song. Thanks for posting this.
