Editors’ Notes

This 78-minute collection of chart-toppers covers the first 35 years of Elton John’s career. Voraciously musical and lyrical, Sir Elton wins hearts and ears with diabolically catchy ballads including “Daniel,” “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road,” and “Sacrifice,” which are all tinged with inescapable sadness. He pumps glam fists on “Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting," gets soulful on “Philadelphia Freedom,” and wonderfully re-imagines The Beatles with a cover of “Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds." It’s a tightly packed compilation that showcases how this enigmatic singer/songwriter became, and remained, an international superstar.

Customer Reviews

Finally!

I have been an Elton John fan for years and was desperately disappointed not to be able to find his music in the iTunes store. I heard earlier this week on a business report that this was going to be released and I have waited with baited breath since. This is a great compilation of Elton John's greatest hits and certainly a must have for all Elton fans!

Great Collection for Elton Fans

What a great collection for Elton fans. Just double-clicking through the samples sent memories flying and put a needed smile on my face. These are some classics to know and enjoy -- an opportunity to introduce my kids to some of these 'older' tunes.

Astonishing

The greatest songs, from one of the greatests. It can't get much better!

His versatility, combined with his effortless melodic skills, dynamic charisma, and flamboyant stage shows, made him the most popular recording artist of the '70s....
