iTunes Review

This second set of esteemed Elton John hits from the ’70s illustrates how the singer/songwriter helped create a soundtrack to an era. Yet his deceptively smart songs (written with lyricist Bernie Taupin) continue to surprise, like the slightly moody, Caribbean-flavored pop of “Island Girl,” a piano-heavy—yet still anthemic—version of the Who classic “Pinball Wizard,” and the gentle “I Feel Like a Bullet (In the Gun of Robert Ford),” a love-gone-sour story wrapped in metaphor. As always, Elton brings ache, truth, and sing-along beauty to his subjects.

Customer Reviews

A Classic

Brilliant, especially "Someone Saved My Life Tonight," "Levon," and "Tiny Dancer." Elton John is a genius who has given millions of fans the soundtrack of our lives. As for the tired Tony Danza remark made by the courageously-nicknamed "Anonymous," the only thing worse than your creepy homophobia is your embarrassing lack of originality. Rock on, Elton!

Great songs but incomplete

I second another post that for some reason, the record label has omitted "Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word" and "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" from the original vinyl record version. While the record is a definite 5 star, I'm can't give it to this selection since those two songs are missing. You know, record companies are pathetic!

Give and Take

To say that these are the greatest hits doesn't do justice to what Elton was putting out in the mid 70's. The original Greatest Hit Vol 2 didn't have Tiny Dancer or I Feel like a Bullett but did have Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word and Don't Go Breaking My Heart. I am guessing that the movie Almost Famous brought about Tiny Dancer, but adding I Feel like a Bullett is a mystery. A fantastic tune but never received any airplay in its day.

Elton John was the biggest pop star of the '70s, grabbing headlines and generating hits throughout the world. As it turned out, this was merely the first act in a remarkable career that kept him at the top of the charts for over 25 years. He charted a Top 40 hit single every year between 1970 and 1996, a sign that he knew how to both change with the times and mold the times to fit him. Initially marketed as a singer/songwriter, John soon revealed he could craft Beatlesque pop and pound out rockers...
