Another trawl through the huge back catalogue
on 25 November 2002
12 years on from the double cd set 'very best of' comes another updated set to take us through the 12 years of hits that have passed since. Well almost....... Eltons biggest seller 'Candle in the wind 97' is not included here - ok 'Something in the way you look tonight' is but that was never the reason people bought the single (good song though this is).
So what's been dropped from the previous set ? US chart topper and 'Sergeant Pepper' favourite 'Lucy in the sky with diamonds', 'Pinball wizard', 'Part time love', 'Passengers' and 'I don't wanna go on with you like that' plus the two new tracks included previously (but not big hits) 'Easier to walk away' and 'You gotta love someone'
Now included are 'Island girl' (strangely not on 'Very best of..' even though it topped the US charts), plus, well all the hits from 1991 onwards including the Lion King stuff and the superb singles from Eltons recent 'Songs from the West Coast' album.
The music quality is high throughout and whilst one may debate endlessly about the choice of cuts, this comes highly recommended. If you haven't got any Elton John, this is an opportunity to plug the gap in your cd collection. Buy the bonus 3 cd set if you can whilst stocks last...
