Win JOHN DENVER's New CD ... TODAY!
A Song's Best Friend: The Very Best of JOHN DENVER. Deluxe 2-CD set in stores October 5, 2004.
Thirty years ago John Denver wrote what is arguably one of the most requested love songs ever, 'Annie's Song', for his then-wife Annie Denver after the near break up of their marriage. It sold more than a million copies hitting the number one spot simultaneously in the U.S and the U.K. This September, it is exactly 30 years since Annie's Song topped the charts.
Now BMG are proud to release the digitally remixed and remastered A Song's Best Friend: The Very Best of John Denver on 5th October 2004. This 2-CD set features all Denver's greatest hits such as 'Leaving On A Jet Plane,' ' Annie's Song,' 'Take Me Home, Country Roads' and 'Rocky Mountain High', not to mention 5 newly discovered and never released tracks as a special bonus disc.
The Very Best of John Denver is sure to reawaken interest in an artist who was without question, one of the most successful and influential singer/songwriters in music history during the seventies. To date, he has sold 60 million albums around the world and achieved numerous accolades along the way. And he was one of the first artists to use his fame to further causes he deeply cared about - especially environmental conservation and world hunger.
Like his father, John loved to fly, and that's how his life abruptly ended: in mid-flight. He was only 53 when the aircraft he'd been piloting crashed into Monterey Bay, near Carmel, California on October 12,1997.
Milt Okun, Denver's longtime producer and friend, who has contributed to the extensive liner notes for the CD's has this to say, "I always thought of John's music as a pure country stream running through a river of polluted water….Right from the beginning, I thought John said things in a unique way that was understandable to everyone. John wasn't at all cynical or opportunistic. He was a healthy influence on the rest of us. And he left behind this beautiful legacy of songs."
