Up for sale is a copy of'John Denver Sings', a private'white label' record that John Denver recorded back in 1966 to give out to his family and friends as a Christmas gift. Only 250 copies were ever pressed.
Many of them were personalized with a note to the close personal friend or family member to whom it had been given, as is the case with this one. At the time John recorded this album, he was singing with The Mitchell Trio and getting ready to launch his solo career.
The songs he recorded on this album include songs written by The Beatles, Django Reinhardt, The Everly Brothers, Ledbelly & the earliest recording of Babe I Hate to Go, by John Denver, which we all know as Leaving on a Jet Plane, later recorded by Peter Paul and Mary. The recording markings on both sides of the Record indicate'HJD-66A & HJD-66B' which most likely reflect John's real name (Henry John Deustchendorf), the year (1966) and sides A & B of the record. The record is in excellent condition.
I played it once to record a cd that could be listened to over and over. I would be willing to burn a copy of the cd for the next owner.
The record sleeve/jacket is in good condition for 53 years old, but has split along the top and bottom seams. Please see all photos for indications of condition. The hand written personalized message on the back states John, it has really been a pleasure for me to meet and get to know you. I hope we can go to the Virgin Islands someday.
This copy was personally given to John M. Meek, who passed away in March 2016. A truly rare opportunity to own one of the rarest pieces of John Denver memorabilia.Of the 250 copies made 53 years ago, only a handful survived & they NEVER come up for sale. Message me with any questions. Please check out my other listings.
