The gem in this release is the acoustic performance in Japan from 1984, as it truly displays the immense talent and vocal range of Denver.
The sound quality of all segments is excellent, and most of the footage looks great if you are so inclined to watch all of it.
Recommendation: Around the World Live seems thrown together, as the Earth Day documentary seems out of place. A documentary on John Denver’s life would have made for the perfect conclusion to the story attempted to be told here. Even the addition of the made-for-television movie Take Me Home: The John Denver Story from 2000 with Chad Lowe as Denver, would have made for a more well-rounded release. The true fan may enjoy sitting and watching all of this, but most will simply enjoy listening to some of it.
