This remastered version of 17-11-70 is well worth getting. It captures Elton at the very beginning of his breakthrough period. 'Your Song' would be his first UK top 10 hit within 3 months of this recording.

The band line-up for the album was very unusual then, and still is now. How many other Pop/Rock artists can you think of who have ever recorded with just Piano, Bass Guitar and drums? This is the classic line-up for a Jazz trio NOT a rock stars band! However, what this does for the album is give it an intimacy missing from some live albums recorded once the artist becomes a superstar. Listen to the little Elton says between songs and you can hear a very shy man who can't quite believe that its really happening.

There are a number of very good tracks on this album. The unfathomable 'Take to the Pilot' is probably the best track on the album. There is no point analysing the lyrics - they don't mean anything, but like a number of tracks on the album ('Sixty Years On' being another example) the band put everything into their performance, and this track really rocks. Like a lot of reviewers have already commented the version of 'Honky Tonk Woman' here is quite brilliant. Starting with an acapella introduction and finishing with a double speed last chorus its a storming version.

My one critcism of the remastered edition is the overall sound. I think that unneccessary phasing and other efects have been added to the sound. This is a small gripe, but if you have been listening to this album since the 70's like I have, you might find it rather irratating as well.

I was a hard core Elton John fan back in the Seventies. I had the joy of seeing Elton John, Dee Murray and Nigel Olson live (though not at this gig unfortunately). These three musicians together created a more varied palette of sound than a symphony orchestra and a wall of synthesizers combined. They lived and breathed these songs. Their performances were so tight you can almost feel the musical telepathy between them. The version of Honky Tonk Woman is the best ever recorded. I wore out the vinyl version of this album when I was a teenager. Thank heavens for CD reissues.

I don't claim to be Elton John's biggest fan. In fact, this is the only CD of his I own. After reading an article about early Elton recordings in Classic Rock magazine, I thought I'd buy a copy this album. I am certainly impressed. What you hear is a young man still hungry for success working very hard with a fabulous backing band. It is a very intimate show with only 100 or so in the audience. From the opening song to the final 18 minute version of Burning Down The Mission, this album is wonderful

Great to hear this album again after 30 years, when I bought this CD. I bought the vinyl original about 1972 and played it until record players went out of fashion and I changed to CDs.
Considering when it was recorded the sound quality is excellent and is one of Elton John's best live performances, he said so in an interview some years ago.
This is the Elton John that I love best, very raw and natural talent from his early years. No gimmicks in those days just superb talent.

I purchased this album on 8 track when it was first released. I later bought it on cassette and then on CD. Whilst not the greatest Elton John fan in the world, this album is exceptional. I have always been a mad Stones fan, but never thought I would enjoy anyone else's version of one of their songs until I heard Elton doing Honky Tonk Woman. Just brilliant!

I'm a long-time Elton fan and I am revisiting the classic stuff, I won't say I forgot how good he was, as I know how good he was, but I'm re-appreciating his albums. I just bought this and it's a blaster. I never heard it before as I never bought it. I'm sorry I didn't as it is astounding. The power is great with the trio of piano, bass and drums. I'm glad there is no guitars as this gives a stripped down snapshot of how Elton sounded in the early years. The sound is fantastic on the remaster with superb clarity, punch, and his piano playing and singing is on fire along with Olsson's explosive drums. This is a treat for fans that never heard it before and I'm ashamed I didn't as I have all his output up to the mid 90s. This is a must for fans of the Classic 70s Elton John!

This is a stonking album. The best live rock album ever to feature NO GUITARS!!?! I do prefer the original album mix also. If there was ever a 'special edition' extended version of this I would buy it again.

At the time of this concert, Elton was barely known in the UK and only just growing in popularity in the US, but from the confidence on show here you'd never know it. A storming 'Take Me To The Pilot' is greeted with wild enthusiasm by the crowd, and is actually better for losing the odd orchestral backing on the album 'Elton John'. The acapella 'Honky Tonk Woman' is great fun, and 'Amoreena' also shines. The songlist is obscure by todays standards (Elton had yet to write his first big hit 'Rocket Man'), making this one just for the fans, but anyone else wanting to know what made Elton the global performing phenomenon he soon after became, need look no further.
