THE UNOFFICIAL ALBUMS OF JOHN DENVER is a partial list of John Denver LPs
and CDs that do not appear on the
Main Discography. Thanks to the contributions of many on-line friends, this
discography got too large to maintain on a single page. As a result, I have divided these albums
into three classifications:
Note that some albums appear on more than one of these lists. For instance, Live in London
contains original material ("The Good Stuff"), but is also an "import".
The Best of John Denver Live is basically a repackaging of some of The Wildlife Concert
(and so is a "Domestic Collection"), but contains two songs not on the original 2 CD set (and so
is "The Good Stuff"). I apologize if all this is a bit confusing... I needed some system to
divide up the contents of this discography, and this was the best I could come up with.
- The Good Stuff: These albums actually contain songs or versions of songs
not available on any of the albums listed on the Main Discography. These include the
Mitchell Trio albums, Radio Shows, and bootlegs, and are the ones really worth hunting down.
- Imports: Any album not generally available in stores (past or present) in the
United States. Some contain unique material (e.g. Live in London or Love Again),
but most are just "Greatest Hits" style collections of tracks from John's regular albums.
- Domestic Collections: Collections available in stores or via mail order
in the United States which contain material found on John's regular albums (such as
The Rocky Mountain Collection).
- More Covers: These are albums covers that were sent to me, but that I don't myself own, and so can't provide track lists or any further details. All the info I have about them is noted next to the covers. I believe these were all sent to be by David Gorell, whom I own an apology. He went to some effort to send me all these years ago, and I've just recently gotten them online. I'm sorry his efforts went unused for so long, and I'm greatful for all his help.
Each album's entry includes a song
list and a picture of the album cover (where available). Clicking on the album
cover will download a larger JPEG image of the same cover.
Some of my personal notes are also available for most albums.
To read these, click on "notes" below an album's song list.
The albums in "The Good Stuff" are mostly from my personal collection. Many of the other entries
were contributed by people on-line (these contributions are noted in the indiviual album notes).
Let me know if you have anything that you think should be added to the list.
There are, to my knowledge, three other on-line discographies that contain JD rarities,
and each contains some items not found here. They are

The RMH: JD Internet Fanclub page;
CNIC's "John Denver Music Collection" at
