Spirit is the 11th studio album by John Denver. It was released in August 1976. After the full-blown success of Windsong and its accompanying hit singles, this album began a downward chart trend for the singer, although he continued to have hits on the adult contemporary charts. This album was re-released with bonus tracks.
