Limited Edition 180g Clear-Blue Splatter Vinyl! Remastered From Original Tapes!
Rocky Mountain High found Denver committing more original songs to his albums, most notably the smash title track. The album features a wealth of favorites including, "Goodbye Again", "For Baby (For Bobbie)", "Darcy Farrow" and "Prisoners." The second side of the album is devoted to the beautiful Season Suite: "Summer, Fall, Winter, Late Winter, Early Spring (When Everybody Goes To Mexico), Spring." In 2007 the song "Rocky Mountain High" was made the official state song of Colorado. Denver was awarded with over 2 million in domestic sales of this album.
"Propelled by the title track, Rocky Mountain High became John Denver's first Top Ten album...he and his steady backup musicians, bassist Dick Kniss and guitarist Mike Taylor, were evolving into an exuberant folk-country sound that would prove enormously appealing over the next few years. The album contained one of Denver's finest ballads, 'Goodbye Again,' as well as one of his better old songs, 'For Baby (For Bobbie).'" - William Ruhlmann, allmusic.com
