This 1987 concert has been parceled out before, with portions of the lengthy set appearing on PBS releases called Live & Unreleased
, but this 2010 Collectors' Choice set contains the full 30-track concert spread over two discs. John Denver
may have been several years removed from the height of his fame, but he did not hesitate to alternate between his hits (“Take Me Home, Country Roads,” “Grandma’s Feather Bed,” “Rocky Mountain High,” “Annie’s Song,” “Calypso”) and newer songs, with the latter actually dominating. This makes Live at Cedar Rapids 12/10/87
the province of hardcore fans but, truthfully, they are the main audience for a release such like this in 2010, and they will be satisfied by this thoroughly assured date.
