On the face of it, John Denver was an unlikely candidate for pop stardom. He achieved fame with a message of wide-eyed optimism at a time when the U.S.A. was wracked by political scandals, economic uncertainty and the after-effects of the Vietnam War. His boyish looks and wholesome persona went against the grain of a society obsessed with hipness.
Denver provided an alternative vision and millions responded to it. A veteran of the folk movement (including a stint with the Chad Mitchell Trio), he emerged as a positive voice who could reach across the generational divide with his music.
Included in this definitive set of John Denver's recordings are his many gold and platinum-selling LPs including Poems, Prayers and Promises (with the hits "Take Me Home, Country Roads" and "Sunshine on My Shoulders"), Rocky Mountain High and Windsong (with such enduring compositions as "Annie's Song" and "I'm Sorry") as well as later forays into country and pop, all of which contain hidden gems worthy of deeper investigation.
A highlight of this set is a true rarity, the 1966 LP John Denver Sings, a privately pressed, limited-run album released only to John's friends and family. The recording captures Denver's youthful idealism and guileless spirit qualities that remained a part of his music until his tragic death in a 1997 plane crash.
The most complete package to date of John Denver's The Complete Studio Albums.Contains 24 original RCA albums released between 1969 and 1986, plus Denver's rare privately pressed 1966 LP, John Denver Sings.

Limited UK box set from the British Alt-Rock trio consisting of 3/4ths of Goth legends Bauhaus: Daniel Ash, David J and Kevin Haskins.

UK five CD set from the Liverpudlian trio led by brilliant singer/songwriter Ian McNabb. Scoring a UK chart hit with Love Is A Wonderful Colour from their debut album, The Icicle Works developed a loyal following with their anthemic Rock that set them apart from their Liverpudlian contemporaries Echo And The Bunneymen, The Teardrop Explodes and Wah!. Never confined to one style, main-man McNabb s impassioned guitar Rock, alongside the propulsive drumming of Chris Sharrock, was under-appreciated at the time but influenced many UK bands from the '90s.
THE FIRST OF THE TWELVE discs in this collection of Anna Moffo’s RCA recital recordings begins with a 1960 performance of the jewel song from Gounod’s Faust, and that selection, along with the others on this disc, sets out the singer’s basic assets and liabilities.
