Editors’ Notes

This thorough collection shows how almost everything singer/songwriter Elton John touched—or co-wrote with lyricist Bernie Taupin—turned to gold. There are early smashes, including the riff-a-rama barnburner “The Bitch Is Back,” the dance floor-filler “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” (with Kiki Dee), and the melancholic “Levon” (inspired by the co-founder of The Band). Of course, Elton’s hits continued long after the ’70s had ended, as collected here—from lush love song “The One” to the open-armed optimism of “Believe” to the set’s fitting finale, a spare heart-burner about aging, “This Train Don’t Stop There Anymore.”

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