    As it looks, 2007 is a really good year for John Denver Fans, judging by new releases!

    It costs 20$ (pluspostage) and the proceeds go to the "Windstar Foundation".
  • Lately, we were made aware of a VERY exciting site on the internet - Just have a look at the Cincinnati Dancing Pigs' page - there you will find many songs of John solo as well as Denver, Boise and Johnson from the late 60s in MP3 format - you can listen to them, and you can even download them!
  • Looking for infos for the next club newsletter, I just by chance ended up on the page www.sister-cities.org --- as we have already reported, John once sang a song for this organization (which is dealing with "sisterships" between cities) – and much to my surprise, you can now listen to and download the song there! The quality is not too great – but I an sure this song will be new to some of you: We Are One
  • "Rocky Mountain High" became Colorado's second official song on March 12, 2007. Lawmakers passed a resolution that puts the anthem alongside the lesser-known "Where the Columbines Grow", which was adopted in 1915. "That is very cool. He'd be very honored. We are very proud. I am going to call my mom and tell her," said Ron Deutschendorf, John's brother.

  • John Adams, one of the best singers presenting John Denver material, will come to Europe around Christmas and play a concert with Guido Bos in Hendrik Ido Ambacht (in the neighbourhood of Rotterdam) on the 5th of January from 1 to 6 pm.In case you are interested (and it is certainly worth it!!), please contact Lia Helmink as soon as possible...
