"Around The World Live"

On 12 October 2009, Eagle Rock Entertainment release the John Denver five-disc DVD set "Around The World Live" [Cat No EREDV757]. This superb set features all of John Denver's best loved songs and biggest hits including: "Rocky Mountain High", "Annie's Song", "Take Me Home, Country Roads", "Leaving On A Jet Plane", "Thank God I'm A Country Boy", "Calypso", "Matthew", "Sunshine On My Shoulders", "Eagle And The Hawk", "Fly Away", "How Can I Leave You Again", "Farwell Andromeda" and many more. Clocking in with nearly ten hours of entertainment this is simply essential for all Denver fans [See over for the full tracklisting].

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.

John Denver has sold in excess of 40 million records worldwide and won two Grammy Awards, an Emmy Award, three American Music Awards, two Country Music Association Awards and was named Poet Laureate of Colorado as well as being inducted into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame. Boasting deluxe packaging in a fold out digipack within a slipcase and containing a booklet lavishly illustrated with John Denver memorabilia this is a real treat for Denver fans.
