John Denver Rocky Mountain Christmas 1975 TV Special

submitted by Marvin's Underground Entertainment on 02/03/18 1

This is an extremely rare copy of the "John Denver Rocky Mountain Christmas Special", which originally aired December 10, 1975. This special was viewed by sixty-five million people - the largest audience to that time for an ABC music program. This may indeed be the only public recording of this program in existence - it's the only copy I have ever seen in my search for it... This copy was digitized from a VHS recording of an actual repeat broadcast from 1977, complete with vintage 1970's commercials. It's not a perfect copy, but it's all that's left to remember this special moment by... Writes a user from IMDB: "John Denver, Steve Martin, and Olivia Newton-John ... three of the premiere talents of the 1970s together on one visually astounding Christmas special. If one gets a chance to see it now, it might be easy to forget how groundbreaking the photography and content were, both inside the special climate controlled dome and out in the majesty of the Rockies. JD's personality is showcased is its finest "far out" form ... and he's completely engaging. Martin is his manic self in a time period just before the mania hit, which is cool, because there's still just enough "who is this guy and what is he doing?" in the audience's reaction. Olivia is gorgeous, and so is her voice. I believe this represented the debut of the JD/ONJ collaboration on "Fly Away". In the 70s and 80s, nobody did Christmas like John Denver ... and for capturing a moment in time, there may never have been the equal of this Christmas special." Enjoy!
