This underrated gem from 1976 was to be the end of an era for Elton John, and probably the last truely great album he made.
The first album to be released on Elton's Rocket label, was also the last before he took an extended break from the music scene.
From the first track 'Your Starter For', this is an Elton John album unlike any other. With instrumentals, orchestral numbers, rock, ballads, jazzy overtones and gospel, this is a real delight with a surprise around every corner.
Pleasantly more experimental than any other Elton album, he and Bernie Taupin produce an album that can be listened to over and over again.
Best tracks: Tonight,Chameleon,Shoulder Holster,Cage the Songbird,Someone's Final Song.
Take a listen and judge this for yourself..this album will not dissapoint you.

Much more ambitious than any of his other albums, Blue Moves still sounds fresh and creative.
It's worth buying just to hear "Idol", one of his best ever songs (the fact that you also get some other classics like "Cage The Songbird", "Chameleon", "Between Seventeen and Twenty" and "Someone's Final Song" are a real bonus though).
I've owned this on vinyl, single disc CD and now the remastered version with the additional tracks, so it's fair to say that I rate it very highly!
Overall, it's one of those rare albums where every track is worth listening to - after all these years, I've never been tempted to skip any of them.

Blue Moves was the second double album Elton John recorded that was released in September 1976, a three-year gap after the classic 1973 double album, Goodbye Yellowbrick Road. His 1975 album, "Rock Of The Westies", saw Elton John bring back drummer Roger Pope, and guitarist Caleb Quaye, both of whom appeared on Elton John's self-titled 1970 album, as well as bassist Kenny Passsarelli, and James Newton-Howard, who would eventually become one of film's most prominent composers, and is the lineup that featured on this LP.
To those fans of a certain BBC programme called, "Top Gear", the track, "Out Of The Blue", is better known for closing each edition of the show as the Allman Brothers opened it with the 1973 song, "Jessica", so for those TV buffs, I hope this answers the, "What Was The Music Used On Top Gear?", question.
Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word, is as classic as sliced bread. I was dismayed when Elton re-recorded it with a certain band called Blue. This re-recording loses its approach to the 1976 original. The version we all know, and love. The qualtiy of the original ouclasses the re-recording in every department.
What other goodies are on the album, "Theme From A Non-Existent TV Series", "Your Starter For....", and, "Bite Your Lip(Get Up And Dance)". Underrated album, NEVER. This is definitely worth having in your collection.
BUY IT.

Apart from Songs from the West Coast, if you've been disappointed with Elton's stuff in the past few years, have a few of his classic albums (Captain Fantastic, Yellow Brick Road etc) and haven't got this, you haven't got a very important Elton album. I'm not going to dissect it song by song, it would do it a great injustice. A well crafted must buy Elton album. Simple.

Twelve reasons why this is Elton John's all-time greatest album: Some of his best, most sophisticated (and underrated) songs; mastery of a bewildering variety of styles; some of his best singing; a brilliant and sympathetic band; superb production by Gus Dudgeon (an all-time best); vocal arrangements by Bruce Johnston of The Beach Boys; Crosby/Nash on backing vocals; the Brecker Brothers on horns. The whole thing plays like a widescreen epic aural movie and throws in a gospel choir, the LSO, sitars and instrumentals. Then, at the end, he sends the whole thing up with a feverish rock/disco finale to remind us he's one damn fine entertainer. And it's a double. And the cover's great. And it knocks socks off the otherwise worthy Goodbye Yellow Brick Road. This is his Sgt Pepper...no, it's much better than that. Oh, sorry - that's more than 12.

While his reputation might suggest otherwise, Elt always did have the capacity for musical surprises, not always for the better but the results were never less than interesting.
While some tracks are more conventional ('Sorry...' and the Saturday Night-like 'Bite your lip' for example), Blue Moves is undoubtedly a remarkable foray into new territory - notably the inclusion of three instrumentals that were left off an earlier single CD version. These include 'Out of the Blue,' long-time staple of TV intro music for years which still sounds fresh to this day.
Other notables include the delightful Chameleon and the excellent single Crazy Water, but my own favourite track is almost forgotten - 'Boogie Pilgrim.' A bit of soulful falsetto and bluesy guitar that shows what a versatile player the man can be, given the chance.

Blue Moves, 1976, is one of Sir Elton's albums that makes you realise why he bacame the household name he is today. It is a colourful and melodic example and display of how many varying genres of music the wonderful man is capable of writing, from the classic pop of his earlier "goodbye, yellow brick road" album, to the smooth country feel which he later employes in "peachtree road" to "blue moves" a mixture of pop, rock and even classical music, as displayed in the outstanding "tonight" and similarly brilliant "sorry seems to be the hardest word." By all means, do yourself a favour and BUY THIS WORK OF GENIOUS!
