His Guitar And His Music
London 1982 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Apollo Victoria Theatre, London, UK; October 26, 1982. Very good soundboard.

File this together with your An Evening With John Denver - it’s a great show!

Thanks to jddpro for sharing the show at Dime.

jddpro noted:

This concert was broadcast on BBC-2 England as “John Denver - His Guitar and His Music” on December 29, 1982. A DVD video copy is also in circulation. One of the most impressive performances here is his rendition of Pete Seeger’s “The Bells of Rhymney”. I once saw someone said that he didn’t like John Denver’s music at first, then he watched this very version of “The Bells of Rhymney” on TV, and it totally changed his opinion on Denver “in one blow”. The performance of “Jimmy Newman” is very outstanding as well. Tom Paxton, who wrote the song, even said that he “learned how to sing his own song” after hearing Denver’s rendition. This is also one of the times John played the piano in front of a camera.

  2. Wonderful share today of the late & great John Denver. He was a stellar artist whose music is still loved around the world.
    Thanks BigO.

  3. Another iconic musical artist from my youth,John became a huge star in the early to mid 70s,had many top 40 hits back when radio really mattered UNLIKE TODAY ,hosted the Tonight Show when Johnny and Ed were still with us and starred in OH God with George Burns. Many critics called him cheesy and his music vanilla to which i say so what, Loved his beautiful ballads ,Annies Song,Sweet Surrender ,Im Sorry ecc as well as his Rockabilly stuff Thank God Im a country boy,Old feather bed ecc.A little trivia,He was director Taylor Hackfords first choice for the lead in An officer and a gentleman ,He turned it down and the role went to Richard Gere,who became a huge star because of the role,John later said it was the worst decision he ever made

  4. Oh No - just heard Prince has died!

  5. RIP “The Artist Formerly Known As Prince”. Forever The Artist ALWAYS Known As Prince. Check out his Super Bowl performance (when the NFL bumkissers apologized for the heavy rain, Prince replied,”Bring it on - the heavier the better”. He closed with an astonishing version of Purple Rain in a torrential downpour…

  6. For a truly incredible example of John Denver’s amazing voice all you have to do is listen to “The Wildlife Concert”, some of the most beautiful singing you’ll ever hear.
    Out of the London tracks, “The Eagle and the Hawk” stood out in my mind (and ears)
