Editorial Review

At a time when the majority of those his age are drifting into retirement, 65-year-old Bob Dylan has put the capper on a three-record run that ranks with the best in his storied, 44-album career. Like Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Fresh Breeze Blowin
The music contained within this CD is simply brilliant, particularly when compared for what passes as commercial music these days.Dylan's songwriting and vocals are superb and his production efforts are flawless. The band is in top form and the mix is spot on.This project,as most of Dylan's recorded work, will stand the test of time. My only criticism is the absence of any acknowledgement for songwriting inspiration. Certainly at least a "tip of the hat"is deserved by Big Maceo Merriweather for his influence of Worried Life Blues for Someday Baby. Same goes for Hambone Willie Newbern as it relates to Rollin and Tumblin. Perhaps, we'll have to wait for the next chapter of Chronicles to acknowledge these artists.

5-0 out of 5 stars Like Wine
Like wine, and as another reviewer has already commented, Dylan really does get better with age... though that's not to detract at all from his past masterpieces. There are several in depth reviews written so I figure I can make this one short and sweet: the album is great and worth a listen whether you're a long time DYlan fan, a Dylan neophyte, or never cared for him (can't imagine many belonging to this last group...)

5-0 out of 5 stars Still Magical
Having grown up with hard rock and merging in to jazz with age,I'm not sure what prompted me to buy the album.I hadn't heard it or about it.Bob Dylan was just some wierd musician to me - This one album has changed all that; I'm a new Bob Dylan fan -Modern Times is pure musical magic.It is at the same time haunting, ironic, true, brilliant...(yes I'm beginning to purchase older stuff now..I've a lot of catch-up work to do!)One review labled the music "pedadantic" - likely not a musicians point of view.No it's not oversaturated with gizmo sound and yes it lacks the immediately catchy Brittany Spears pop sound.Bob Dylan is the wrong place to look for that anyway.Relax, reminisce, day-dream - older is sometimes better! ...

Editorial Review

Over the last seven years, Mark Knopfler and Emmylou Harris quietly recorded an album by stealing "a few precious hours of studio time here and there," as the ex-Dire Straits singer/guitarist puts it. Good thing they kept it largely under wraps--expectations would have pushed through the clouds, especially as Knopfler conjured 10 of the 12 cuts, and Harris, who writes potently, but little, contributed two ("Love and Happiness," "Belle Starr"). Yet now that it's here, Read more

I just LOVE this CD.the harmonies are good.I like most of the songs but for a couple.I highly recommend it.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must have gem
Who would have thought? A queen of folk/ country teaming up with a british rocker.Think again!!!!It has happened before,I'm sure.Who cares?What matters is this wonderful jewel gone CD thought up by Emmylou and Knopfler.Consider the marital romp"This is us".You tap to it as you listen to the borderlinish tongue-in-cheek lyrics.Then you have "Donkey Town"an unifinished story whose end you yearn to figure out ..Then,the bluesy ballad"Right Now".Well,just play it and see how wonderful this work is.

5-0 out of 5 stars Thoughtful
This is a fine album that comes with great melodies, fine guitar playing, vocals with feeling, and interesting poetry. I don't know if I would call it a classic, but it certainly combines some of the best talents of two exceptional artists in a blend that works wondrously well. "All the Roadrunning" seems to ask the question of whether a musician's career is worth the pain. The answer is apparently yes as long as the dream remains. "Donkey Town" is an interesting story that makes you want to learn "the rest of the story". Although Knopfler's guitar work is exceptional, and Emmylou's vocals are as clear as daybreak, it's the lyrics that really make this whole record enjoyable for me. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars cd and dvd review
at first, your impression of how Dylan sings nowadays can be cringe-worthy. it's not his fault, it's just age that robs him of the ability to turn on a dime that any young person can do without thinking about it.
5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Record But What About...
Yes, the record is fantastic and timeless... but in all of these 59 lengthy, overly-authoratative and sometimes ethereal reviews there is not one mention of who is on the record playing the instruments accompanying Mr. Dylan. WHO IS ON THE RECORDING?
5-0 out of 5 stars He still has it after all these years
The album provides a very enjoyable experience. We know Bob Dylan is a jack of all trades and a master of nearly everything in the musical genre. From protest songs to love songs and then to break up songs. From acoustic, to electric, to gospel, and now onto 'modern times'. This is a feel good album through and through (...because it feels good to know that Bob still has it after all these years). The stand out tracks in my opinion are "Spirit in the Water", "Working Man's Blues #2", "Beyond the Horizon", and "Nettie Moore". If you like good music, then you'll enjoy this album for a very very long time. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Another Great Indigo Girls Album!
The title of this new Indigo Girls album makes it natural to compare the song-writing styles of the two Indigo Girls a little.
4-0 out of 5 stars Deserved better recording and producing
I am a huge IG fan. Don't regret the purchase at all. I enjoy the songs, but this CD seems rushed. Something is missing in the mixing or recording or something. Seems that there is no intrumental or vocal nuance, unimaginative background music, almost the kind of thing you get with a live recording. Sometimes the background vocals overpower the song (Pink sounds great in Rock n Roll Heavens Gate but totally overpowers Amy, Emily and the intruments IMHO). I think it would have been a much better album had more time and attention to detail been spent in production and recording.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just like when you were on the Today show w/ Bryant Gumbel
Wow - okay, this album reminds me of the music that made me want to sing, write, and play guitar when I was 13 years old.There I was, watching the Today show with Bryant Gumbel...and there they were, the Indigo Girls performing Closer to Fine.I had no idea who they were, but I loved their sound, it was like nothing I had heard before - so I asked my mom to buy me the album.That same year I went to one of my first concerts and watched IG perform with Joan Baez and sure enough I was a folk music lover.

Editorial Review

The premise was simple. Bruce Springsteen invites a dozen or so New York City musicians--packing banjos, fiddles, accordions and the like--to his New Jersey farmhouse for a three-day hootenanny, and tape is rolling. The results are sublime, his 21st album featuring their versions of songs harvested from Springsteen's dog-eared LPs by Pete Seeger. Not all written by Seeger, the songs are how the American folk icon interpreted them, and these organic recordings, with no rehearsals or overdubs, pay tribute with the simplicity and spontaneity he intended. It's not hard to link Springsteen's dissatisfaction with American politics to the protest song "We Shall Overcome" or even the Irish ballad "Mrs. McGrath," where he alters the lyrics to read, "I'd rather have my son as he used to be/Than the King of America and his whole navy." But the beauty of these Seeger Sessions are pieces that underscore the mood of the bandleader, which borders on down-home amusement: the bluegrass outlaw ballad "Jesse James," the Dylanesque "Pay Me My Money Down" and the euphoric "Jacob's Ladder," a gumbo-and-whiskey-fueled romp that could pass for the closing hymn at the Church of Asbury Park.

Although I don't own this album, my dad does and I listen to it all the time. Songs like "I'm Looking Through You", "Drive My Car", "Wait", and "The Word" rock! Other soft songs like "In My Life", "Nowhere Man", "Norwegian Wood", and "Michelle" are good to. So if you don't already have it, go out and get it!

5-0 out of 5 stars RUBBER SOUL IS AS REAL AS IT GETS
I purchased this album in 1966 and was blown away, but first had to readjust from the Fab's earlier works and learn to appreciate how different Rubber Soul was from Help, yet still analogous. I mean, we all knew it was the Beatles when I've Just Seen A Face (American release) leaped into our ears upon our first listen, but they had transcended their classic sound a year earlier, surpassing anything they or anyone else had come close to perfecting prior to Rubber Soul. I'm still marveled by these lads, who were in their early 20's during the time Rubber Soul was composed and recorded, and their incredible sophistication for only being barely out of their teens. It's always been difficult for me to listen to anything new without comparing it to their standards. I guess that's not a grumble. I was so lucky to be elevated to this level of music appreciation at such an early age that it has forever changed my manner of thinking. This is one heck of a classy album and my fave forever! It just keeps getting better with every listen. If I may borrow John's line - "In my life...I love them more!" ... Read more

Editorial Review

Better known as the "White Album," this was meant to be the record that brought them back to earth after three years of studio experimentation. Instead, it took them all over the place, continuing to burst the envelope of pop music. Lennon and McCartney were still at the height of their powers, with Lennon in particular growing into one of rock's towering figures. But even McCartney could still rock, and the amazement on "Helter Skelter" was that he had vocal cords at the end. From Beach Boys knock-offs to reggae and to the unknown ("Revolution #9"), this has it all. Some records have Read more

Hi, my name's Joao, I have heard anything by this group from Starclub in Hamburg sessions to Twickenham outtakes and beyond to the Ringo Rotogravure and Wings @ the speed of sound and although this bunch is familiar for burning holes in people's pockets with their trite melodies (i would suggest maladies) and nonexistant depth in lyrics (think: 'I once had a girl', 'one to three four can I have a little more' and for instance 'because you're sweet and lovely girl I love you').
5-0 out of 5 stars The greatest album from the greatest band
If I were trapped on a deserted island for eternity and could only have one album with me to pass the time, it would be the White Album. It is the most diverse, interesting and well crafted album ever made. The songs range from rock to country to surfer rock to heavy metal to folk to camp to progressive to the just plain weird. The unparelled songwriting genius of Lennon and McCartney is well on display here as is there obvious differences in style. Harrison also emerges on the White Album and showcases his best song ever "While My Guitar Gently Weeps". Some may point to "Sgt Pepper" as the Beatles crowning achievement, I point directly and emphatically to the White Album.

Editorial Review

Even if you don't agree with Neil Young's politics, you can't help but be daunted by the intersection of his genius and ire on his second album in less than seven months. It is the very rare artist who is able to channel indignation and moral disgust in such a coherent and forceful way--without sacrificing any of the vivid imagery, passion, or the high level of musicality that we have come to expect from him over the past four decades. But that's not what elevates this album: it's his pure, naked, visceral reaction to the Bush administration's foreign policy, building on a canon of outrage that he began with 1970's "Ohio," penned in the wake of the Kent State student deaths. But here he goes one better, filling in the lines that he began to draw on 2003's Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars I kneel to Neil.
This is one Neil Young album that the majority of people will judge before they even hear it. Meaning, any anti-Bush, pro-USA, Neil fan will enjoy it. For the most part that's probably true. It is mostly track after track of ripping apart the Bush administration and war, yet also maintaining a sense of hope and love for the country. Lyrically that's what it is. Musically I find it's similar to his mid-90's album "Mirror Ball". It's rocking Neil for the most part, and appropriate for the topics. Not every song is a winner, but I really like the tracks "The Restless Consumer", "Let's Impeach The President", and "Lookin' For A Leader". Subtle? Not really, but I like it.

5-0 out of 5 stars No throwaway songs here
When I read that the album was hastily put together I expected it to be rough around the edges. Electic Neil always sounds that way to me anyway. Part of the charm. What I did't expect was how musical it would be nor the depth of the lyrics. Surely some of his best work. Pretty amazing for an aging hippie of 61. Makes you wonder how good he'll be when he's 81.

Proving yet again their willingness to dice 'n' slice their burgeoning legacy into new--if not exactly fresh--product, the Fab Four Minus One have released this single-disc compendium of their No. 1 hits. Though obviously superfluous to the faithful (who may also find themselves quibbling over the precise definition of "No. 1 hit" and the exclusion of seeming contenders like "Please Please Me" and "Strawberry Fields"), newly arrived visitors from the Pleiades star cluster and other neophytes will find it a concise and generous (nearly 80 minutes) single-disc introduction to the band's career-spanning, unparalleled dominance of pop music in the 1960s. But beyond being a mere trophy case of commercial success (and it won't be hard to find critics who'll argue that these singles aren't even the band's best work), it's also a Read more

I understand why the Beatles are the top sellers in rock music as they suck. They only made about two decent songs in their "Hey Jude" a pretty song, and "Ballad Of John And Yoko". The sixties was a horrible decade of rock music. I would have to be said that only very few good songs came out in the sixties, which one of them is Neil Young's "Down By The River".

Editorial Review

Though Amos Lee's music is frequently described as a fusion of folk and soul, such an equation fails to reflect the singular artistry of this impressive debut. Like labelmate Norah Jones (who guests on two cuts), the Philadelphia singer-songwriter recognizes the power of simplicity, distilling an emotional essence that cuts across categories. The opening of his "Seen It All Before" echoes Bob Dylan's "Knockin' on Heaven's Door"; the stunning "Arms of a Woman" channels Otis Redding's "I've Got Dreams to Remember"; "Give It Up" cuts a classic Bill Withers groove; "Black River" has the sound of an age-old spiritual; and the closing "All My Friends" follows Van Morrison into the mystic. Throughout the song cycle, the bare-bones arrangements behind Lee's vocal flutter reinforce an organic unity that transcends genre. For all of the debts he owes to the music of the 1960s and '70s, the results sound timeless rather than retro. In his cautionary "Soul Suckers," Lee sings that "nothing is more powerful than beauty in a wicked world"--and proceeds to prove it. Read more

NEW YORK (Blue Note Records) - Amos Lee has recently begun recording his sophomore release for Blue Note. The Philadelphia native is tracking in his home city with the assistance of producer Barrie Maguire. A prolific writer at 27, Lee is in the process of whittling down a wealth of great new material he's penned since his successful self-titled debut. The album will document the soulful stylings of this exciting young singer/songwriter who is growing artistically by leaps and bounds.

Rod Stewart's career has been subject to so many twists that a single-disc overview is somehow both appealingly broad and inadequate to the task of tracing all those zigzags. From beloved rocker of the first order to disco dilettante to pop crooner, Stewart's career has presented challenges to fans who may have been charmed by the rollickingly randy "Maggie May" and bemused by the alarmingly narcissistic "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?" This 16-song retrospective touches all the bases without delving deeply into any era. The selections aren't arranged sequentially and the booklet is much more generous with vintage photos than album credits. This best-of collection is clearly aimed at the casual fan, but no album that presents Rod the Mod gems "Downtown Train," "You Wear It Well," and "Reason to Believe" one after another is a throwaway.

4-0 out of 5 stars The Voice Is What Makes It Work
Rod Stewart's penchant for crossing to and from and back through all categories of rock-pop music makes it often hard to define exactly where he fits into all this. The one undeniable constant is his raspy voice that seems to work for him with great affection and appeal. His great versatility to utilize his voice so surreptitiously is a real talent. One CD cannot represent an entire career but it can give us snippets here and there where his distinctive and alluring voice has taken him and us.

Editorial Review

The Weepies are a duo of songwriters Deb Talan and Steve Tannen. How can one not help but be delighted when two such similar sound names align with one another? Perfectly matched, the thirteen songs are quiet but insistent, with lyrics full of pop smarts and poetic depth. Narratives, whether fragmented or direct, empower most of the songs, giving even first-person vantage points a solid foundation. Talan does the bulk of the lead vocals, and her voice is a confident instrument, full of sly surprise and subtle phrasing. The pair's harmonies are thoughtful and evocative, oftentimes utilizing less than obvious intervals. In fact, the chorus vocals owe more to great radio pop of the sixties and seventies than to the various contemporary strains of folk and Americana. Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Suprisingly amazing
I just bought it because I liked the cover art. That's not entirely true, I did hear one of their songs on the Paste sample CD.Anyway, this is smart music; smart lyrics, smart melodies and smart writing.It's very soft, subtle music (which is where I'm at musically right now).Most of the songs focus on the vocals which means that the listener will listen to the lyrics.I can't say enough about the song "The World Spins Madly On"Blew me away when I first heard it and still does.It sounds like a Fountains of Wayne not to mention he sounds a little bit like Adam Slessinger.Never before have I heard someone sing about the world moving on while I silently sit still and think about the opportunities I've passed up.
5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Music
This is the kind of CD that makes you smile when you listen to it.It's the kind that makes you want to sing along before you even know all of the words.The kind where you think every song on it might be your favorite.The songwriting is thoughtful, heartfelt and sweet (in the best possible sense of the word) while also exhibiting an intellectual edge.The lyrics are well-written without overshadowing the lovely harmonies that Steve and Deb have created.Her voice is evocative of Patty Griffin, but at the same time is unique and absolutely lovely.His voice is just at nuanced and gorgeous, and when they are singing together, it is a study in the beauty the human voice can produce.This is Americana at it's finest.I'm torn between wishing The Weepies all of the commercial success they so richly deserve and wanting to keep them my little (newly discovered...thanks, NPR!) secret.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Weepies
Infectious and joyful, I literally feel better after listening to their CD.Able to communicate the sorrows faced in life within a validating presense."Painting by Chagal" is terribly romantic, captures the essence of what the experience of "love" is."Painting by Chagal" is part poetry, mythology and ordinary reality. ...

...............HOW IN THE HECK DID THIS HIPPY MAKE IT OUT OF THE 60's ?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? THERE IS NOT A WORSE MALE SINGER IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND !!!!!!!!!!!!!but then hippies and those wanting to be will always gush over his ''poetry''.stringing nonsensical sentences to boring folk music im sure HAS to be accompanied by a huge spliff !!!!!! ill give the guy credit for being the anti handsome,anti talented rock(???????) star.he is the extreme opposite of mtv.my god,if dylan was able to get paid for 1 song,everyone should run out and start singing.theres no way you will sound any where near as badly as bob.
5-0 out of 5 stars My Favorite!
I have listened to this CD for several years now, and I have never tired of it.I think the best song is Mississippi.There is something so mellow and soothing about this song, but I can't really put my finger on why.I think it could be the bluesy base that has such a rhythmic, continuous sound.
4-0 out of 5 stars out of the slump
this album was good from beginning to end.it silenced the critics that hadnt shut up in years,he made a really good album ending his slump of so soalbums.he segued fromthe hippie/folkster into the burned out genius we loved from the 60s only now it was the 90s.the album was an important bridge in his career and the most listenable album since nashville skyline.32 years earlier. ...

Editorial Review

It might sound like a backhanded compliment to say Hem makes lite-rock with a country twist. But before you conjure up images of Phil Collins with a cowboy hat, let's clarify by saying the New York band essentially picks up where the Cowboy Junkies left off--crafting intimate southern songs that unfold with quiet dignity over a bed of strings, pedal-steel guitars and restrained piano flourishes. That's more like it. Besides, in Sally Ellyson, the group has a singer whose clear, sweet voice can't help but make even the most overcast song sound oddly beautiful. If only "I'll Dream Of You Tonight" and "Too Late To Turn Back Now" could be the soundtrack to every waiting room people would actually look forward to that next root canal. --Read more

I heard about Hem on NPR, and bought Funnel Cloud soon after.I'd never heard them before.I love this CD and am happy to find a new group to listen to."The Pills Stopped Working" is my favorite song.The other songs are soft, mellow, beautifully written.The music is rich and complex.I look forward to hearing more of Hem.

I've never heard this band before until today.I read some recommendations from some reviews.All I can say is that I "LOVE" it!
5-0 out of 5 stars Maybe Hem's best yet -- and that's saying something
Hem's last full album of new songs, Eveningland, was hauntingly beautful but suffered from overproduction. It was if all the engery was bottled up and they didn't want to let it out.

Van Morrison reputedly wasn't crazy about the idea of a greatest-hits package, and this set's haphazard programming--which leaps from period to period, style to style, tossing in two key singles by his mid-'60s band Them--speaks to his lack of involvement. Still, it rivals Read more

I had this disc once before and it was stolen. Loved it so much I had to buy it again. I wish it cotained Tupelo Honey and Into the Mystic. Other than that I love this disc . I recommend this to anyone. Whether you are a big fan or just only know a couple of his songs. Lively and uplifting. Great for traffic jams.

4-0 out of 5 stars Wondering why they call this guy Van the Man?
Then you obviously don't own this CD. Fix that sometime soon. Any album with Brown Eyed Girl and a bunch of crappy songs is still worth a purchase, but you get lots more: Three good songs by Them (garage-band anthem Gloria, Baby Please Don't Go, Here Comes the Night) and several great songs by Van himself: the aforementioned Brown Eyed Girl, Sweet Thing, Moondance, And It Stoned Me, Domino, Jackie Wilson Said, Cleaning Windows and the previously-unreleased Wonderful Remark especially stand out, though there's more.

5-0 out of 5 stars Worthy "Visions and Revisions"
'Best of' is a great update to their earlier 'Greatest Hits' album.This C.D. provides more highlights and mixes the songs better, overall.Unbelievably, it adds two more classics from 'Bridge Over Troubled Water,' but still doesn't make a purchase of the original classic redundant."A Hazy Shade of Winter," "At the Zoo," and "Fakin' It" are welcome additions that are undoubtedly better appreciated than their original release.(Significantly, these songs are played on oldies stations more now than in the past.)Their vintage hits don't fool around, either.None of them seem old, really.Unlike Dylan, they were as comfortable with spare, folk music as they were with ethereal, pop production."Sounds of Silence," "Feelin' Groovy," and "Homeward Bound" are excellent folk."The Dangling Conversation," "Scarborough Fair," "The Boxer," and "Bridge over Troubled Water" are exquisitely crafted pop masterpieces, and "I am a Rock" and "Mrs. Robinson" are folk-rock perfection.If you haven't been given enough, then this C.D. is rounded off with their reunion finale "My Little Town," which surprisingly only clocks in at about three-and-a-half minutes.Generosity and selection make this C.D. a must have for those who love timeless music from the sixties and early seventies.

5-0 out of 5 stars A classic of modern popular music
Many of these songs are now part of the American popular repertoire , there with the songs of the Beatles , Dylan, Rogers and Hart- Hammerstein, Berlin, Kern, Porter. They are songs which have the kind of pleasantness which stays in the mind, and can be heard over and over again.
3-0 out of 5 stars Great Track Selection but Not So Great Sound!
I know that relative to the other Greatest Hits album, the sound quality here is better but it's still very poor compared to what other remastered albums out there sound like.To be fair to the record company, nowhere on the cd does it say "remastered".It just says mastered by Vic Anesini.Let's hope they truly remaster this album soon by unearthing a much better master tape from the vaults.Volume levels are very low and although cleaner than the old versions, the overall sound is quite ordinary.Other than that, the track selections are very good and truly represent the best work that this dynamic duo have done.Simply great harmonies and great examples of brilliant songwriting on every track. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the all time greats in his finest form
Van Morrison's Moondance is a great, soulful record from one of the best of the late 60's and early 70's. Featuring his finest collection of songs, the album has a little bit for everyone. Romantic songs like "Moondance" and "Crazy Love" as well as energy-filled tunes like "Caravan" and just great songs like "And it stoned me" help to make this one of the finest collection of songs ever assembled.

4-0 out of 5 stars Just short of a masterpiece.
A very relaxing album from Van, with plenty of great songs. Example? Try the opening one-two punch of And It Stoned Me and the title track, two of Van's most popular songs. But wait! Don't go away yet. There's also Caravan, a song that SHOULD be a classic butisn't quite, as well as Crazy Love and Into the Mystic, two songs I like but not as much as the first two and Caravan. It really is a shame about side two, since one song rises above the average level:Brand New Day, with a joyful chorus.

Editorial Review

Resembling at times a soft-sung Robert Plant, Buckley was an intuitive vocalist capable of dizzying arabesques and choir-boy sweetness. He is joined here by a tight band for 10 tracks highlighting his stylistic range--Pearl Jam bluesy on "Eternal Life," impossibly serene on Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah," art-school noisy on "So Real," Led Zep daring on "Mojo Pin." Unorthodox, this was the debut of '94. Read more

How else can you describe the combination of his beautiful voice and well written music?I can't add anything to the volumes that have been written about this album already.An album with well over 500 reviews that is holding a 4.5 star average must have something going for it.
2-0 out of 5 stars Born to Croon
Jeff Buckley sounds like what Marc Bolan would have sounded like if Bolan had taken Perry Como as his musical muse.Seriously, think about Marc Bolan trying to sound like a '50's crooner and you'll know what Jeff Buckley sounds like.

5-0 out of 5 stars Genius
Gone to soon. What would he have become we will never really know and we are not better off because of his untimely death. An artist with creative vision and the talent to back it up. There is so little of his original music available it is difficult to really understand were he was headed and were his creative would have eventually taken him. The multiple albums of his original music has captured his songs in different stages of develoment and arrangement such that no two versions are completely the same and document his development.

I really think John Denver's songshas more to it then amazing melody and lyrics and ofcourse not to forget his voice.Its actually hard to compare him with other artists but I can definitely say that I feel the best listening to his songs. Although some of my other fav songs like love again are not included in this cd but still the cd has most of his best songs. The highlights of the cd are the unrealeased version of calypso and leaving on a jet plane. so, If you have heard his songs before or not, this cd is a must buy for all.

5-0 out of 5 stars Sunshine Music Lives On
John Denver has melted hearts for generations with what can be described as "sunshine music".A mix of country, bluegrass, folk, and great pop sensibilities, Denver has always been the lucky peoples' choice (even if he is the critics' underdog as a singer songwriter).His voice is excellent. As though he would really need a defense, anyway, his collaboration with Pacido Domingo, one of the three tenors, is certain testimony to his vocal credibility.Cynics need not apply, for if some of his more sentimental songs are "sap," then at least we know he got his ingredients fresh from the best trees in Vermont.He created great soaring songs for lady and land.Some are orchestrated to perfection; others are homegrown prizes."Sunshine on My Shoulders," "Rocky Mountain High," and "Take Me Home, Country Roads" all resonate with articulate sweetness.He perfected ruggedness with "Thank God, I'm a Country Boy" and "Wild Montana Skies," but his serenades are also expert, including "Andromeda, (Welcome to My Morning)" and "Annie's Song".Subjectively, "Calypso" is no hokey homage, but a heartfelt classic that demonstrates a fine vocal range.Besides covering all of the classics, this C.D. collects some great, unfamiliar terrain."Fly Away" and "Sweet Surrender" are excellent songs that add to the scope of the album and his legacy. For those of us willing to stand our ground, his 'Definitive All-Time Greatest Hits' gives us all his famous songs and all the unfamiliar territory we might have missed.John may have left us early, but his portfolio of "sunshine music" has yet to be imitated much and never completely dismissed.
5-0 out of 5 stars Appreciation later in life.....
I was never a 'fan' of John Denver in my growing up years.His music was a part of those years, but I took it for granted just hearing it on the radio. Now, some 20 years later, I can appreciate it more than ever. His beautiful mind, his thoughts, his feelings all come out in his music. My husband and I now own property in West Virginia and when I play 'Country Roads' it makes me cry.Because now I feel the love for that place just like he did when he wrote that heartfelt song.Take me home, country roads...to the place I belong - West Virginia! It makes my heart long for our beautiful mountain! All those songs of yesteryear now mean something to me. I love his style, his words, the arrangements. Just a must play cd long rides in the country or just listening to while cooking supper in the kitchen! Thanks John Denver for making songs that touch the heart! ... Read more
