Info zu Rocky Mountain High (Remastered)

„Rocky Mountain High“ erschien 1972, und es sollte das erste Top-Ten-Album für John Denver werden. Von Anfang an atmet diese Platte den Geist des Aufbruchs: Beschwingt vom plötzlichen und lange versagten Erfolg des Vorgänger-Albums „Poems, Prayers & Promises“ schwingt sich Denver auf „Rocky Mountain High“ zu einem ganz neuen Energie-Level auf. Wesentlich mehr Up-Tempo-Nummern, viel dichtere Arrangements um Denvers sanfte Stimme und Akustik-Gitarre (Drums, Streicher, sogar Kinderchor sind hier mit dabei), und auch thematisch viel größere Entschlossenheit: Gleich mit den ersten beiden Nummern - dem Titelsong, der auch Nummer-Eins-Single war, und dem Beatles-Cover „Mother Nature's Son“ - greift Denver seinen steten Kampf für Umweltschutz und Ökologie auf; das originale Plattencover enthielt sogar (auch in der Neuauflage abgedruckt) einen Aufruf, zur US-Präsidentschaftswahl von 1972 zu gehen. Starkes, kämpferisches Album eines der ganz großen Singer-Songwriter!

John Denver
One of the world’s best-known and best-loved performers, John Denver earned international acclaim as a songwriter, performer, actor, environmentalist and humanitarian. Denver’s career spanned four decades and his music has outlasted countless musical trends and garnered numerous awards and honors.

The son of a U.S. Air Force officer, Denver’s artistic journey began at age eleven when he was given his grandmother’s guitar. Denver eventually took guitar lessons and joined a boys’ choir, which led him at age twenty to pursue his dream of a career in music.

In 1963 he struck out on his own, moving to Los Angeles to be in the heart of the burgeoning music scene. It was during this time that Henry John Deutschendorf, Jr. was urged by friends to change his name if a recording career was to be in his future. He took his stage name from the beautiful capital city of his favorite state, Colorado. Later in life, Denver and his family settled in Aspen, Colorado and his love for the Rocky Mountains inspired many of his songs.

John Denver experienced his first major break in the music industry when he was chosen from 250 other hopefuls as lead singer for the popular Mitchell Trio. Two years and three albums later, Denver had honed his considerable vocal talent and developed his own songwriting style. He gained recognition when his song “Leaving On A Jet Plane” was recorded by Peter, Paul and Mary, becoming their first and only number one hit. As the Mitchell Trio disbanded, Denver was climbing up the pop charts as a solo act with songs like “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” “Rocky Mountain High,” “Sunshine On My Shoulders,” “Annie’s Song,” “Back Home Again,” “Thank God I’m A Country Boy,” and “Calypso,” solidifying his position as one of the top stars of the 1970s.

By his third album in 1970, Denver’s social and political leanings were defined more clearly. Denver was one of the first artists to share an environmental message through his music, beginning with the song “Whose Garden Was This?” This was the first in a long line of songs that he wrote about the environment.

Denver contributed his talents to the benefit of many charitable and environmental causes and received numerous civic and humanitarian awards over the years. Fans responded to his heartfelt urgings about ecology, peace, and compassion that were consistently delivered in a gentle manner on his records and at live performances.

His passion to help create a global community paved the way for ventures into new musical and geographic territories. In 1985 he was invited by the Soviet Union of Composers to perform in the USSR, inspiring the internationally acclaimed song “Let Us Begin (What Are We Making Weapons For?).” The powerful video for “Let Us Begin” moved viewers around the world.
