Reseña de álbum

Rarely has a greatest-hits collection been as effective as Elton John's first compilation of Greatest Hits. Released at the end of 1974, after Goodbye Yellow Brick Road and Caribou had effectively established him as a superstar, Greatest Hits is exactly what it says it is — it features every one of his Top Ten singles ("Your Song," "Rocket Man," "Honky Cat," "Crocodile Rock," "Daniel," "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road," "Bennie and the Jets," "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me"), plus the number 12 "Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting" and radio and concert favorite "Border Song." Despite the exclusion of a couple of lesser hits from this era, most notably "Levon" and "Tiny Dancer," Greatest Hits is a nearly flawless collection, offering a perfect introduction to Elton John and providing casual fans with almost all the hits they need.

Sir Elton John's greatest

Sir Elton John is definitely one of the best artists in the history of man kind, it seems as if he invented his own type of music to the way he likes it, and i do to. this album definitely has his greatest songs on it, but i think one more should be included (Levon). Rocket Man, Bennie and the Jets, Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting and Crocodile Rock have been favorites since i can remember. Sir Elton John is part of the best of the best and always will be.

Two Thumbs Up for Sir Elton John!

I've always been a fan of Elton John; his songs are great. This album really is perfect because a lot of his hits are all on one CD. So get it!! Also, if you like the song "Rocket Man" you HAVE to read the short story "Rocket Man" by Ray Bradbury on which the song was written after and inspired by. If you compare the two, you'll see what I mean.

a life-changing album

Quite simply, this album changed my life. These days, I never listen to it because I own all the albums that these songs come from. If you're just starting to get into Elton John, though, this album covers his great years from 1970-76. These days, I don't really love "Daniel" or "Crocodile Rock," but this album is just fantastic. EJ is a true original. He rocks well, but there's something beyond simple rock or simple ballads in his music. Tupac and Mary J Blige have had hits sampling him. He's played with every great rock artist. His music has the best of pop, rock, soul, and classical touches. And that voice. He taught me how to sing. The person that wrote that Elton John didn't write his own songs is misinformed. He co-writes with lyricists, but he writes the music and melodies for all of his songs. All of these songs are co-written (lyrically) by Bernie Taupin. So what? Brian Wilson (of the Beach Boys) had a lyric co-writer. Paul McCartney and John Lennon wrote songs together. What's the guy's point? Oh, and the person that said that Elton John doesn't stand the test of time??? Name an artist who had had as many hits over such a long period of time and is still recognized today? Sure, EJ isn't churning out hits like he used to, but he's still relevant enough to have collaborated with boy bands and Eminem. I'd love to hear someone name an artist with as much staying power as Elton John. Even more "important" bands folded DECADES before Elton hit harder times. EJ is about 60. He's entitled to slow down, and that doesn't invalidate any of his earlier work. Anyone who thinks that you should forget ALL music that's more than a few years old needs to get a bit older...we'll see if he holds on to that opinion when he's 30 or so.

La versatilidad musical de Elton John, combinada con su natural habilidad melódica, dinámico carisma, y extravagantes espectáculos, lo convirtió en el artista de grabaciones más popular de los 70. A diferencia de muchas estrellas del pop, fue capaz de mantener su popularidad, y colocó un simple por año en el Top 40 desde 1970 hasta 1996. Durante ese lapso, tuvo bajones temporarios en creatividad y en ventas, perdió el favor de la crítica, tuvo peleas con su letrista, Bernie Taupin, luchó contra varias...
