Rocky Mountain Chrsitmas Letdown

"What a disappointment! The sad thing is, John Denver's Christmas special named "A Rocky Mountain Christmas" was outstanding. Breaking standard practice, the whole special (except for Olivia Newton John's hit song) wasn't videotaped, but filmed. Kodak was a major sponosor. The nature scenes, from the mule deer running along the edge of a forest, to the egg laying, fertilization and birth of trout in a lake near Maroon Bells, the opportunity to see Annie holding their newly adopted son Zachary within the geodesic dome, the butterflies in the dome, Steve Martin and his banjo-plying, arrow through the head singing, Olivia and John doing "Fly Away," and all the rest remain my absolute favorite Christmas special. This special won Emmys for its video quality!
But no, we get a Yule Log. Don't be screwed by this fake-out. The CD all by itself is better, and you don't have to put up with a boring picture of a fire. The music will keep you warm all by itself. You don't need a fake log to feel good about the music.
But you should feel sad that most of the television shows John did have never been offered to the public."
Please note-not the classic 1975 Denver tv special!

"I got my hopes up when I saw this title and thought it was the old tv special I remembered fondly from the 70s.(The one with Denver in the glass-enclosed dome in the snow.)Further reading revealed it is merely Xmas scenes underscored by the accompanying cd of the same name.Luckily I didn't buy it under false pretences,but I thought others might make the same mistake.
However,I may reconsider,as the original record is a tasteful,enjoyable Xmas record and I can imagine snow scenes would go well with the music. Festive albums generally are a pretty awful bunch,and this nice understated LP,with gentle orchestations by Lee Holdridge is one of the better ones.Denver's rendition of 'O Holy Night',done in his lyric,sympathetic tenor,is worth the price of the record alone."

"I still enjoy this collection of songs after all these years. A rather interesting format, songs I would give 5 stars, format 3 stars. Not sure where the confusion came from on what it contained, unless the description has been modified to help describe it better. The cover shown is the same from the original album so at least now you know what you are getting up front. I always read the descriptions before I buy because so many on John Denver's albums available today are just remixes of older albums and you could end up buying the same thing over and over."
