Synopsis

Amazon.com
The title is misleading. You might be thinking it's Elton John's 16 hits featured here, but no. Instead, these are covers of big hits recorded when Elton John was still Reginald Dwight trying to figure a way up the popular music charts and willing to do anything to stay in the music business and away from a regular job. "Spirit in the Sky," "Signed, Sealed, Delivered," and "Travelin' Band" are among the tracks imitated. Makes for an interesting novelty. But definitely don't go looking here for the classic Elton John sound. --Rob O'Connor

Novel remakes from an up & coming star
07/13/1998
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Who knew at the time Reginal Kenneth Dwight recorded these pop tunes written by other artists that he would eventually be the superstar that he is today. The sound is slightly raw and his voice still developing, but the style and arrangements are uniquely Elton John. This is probably not a CD for the casual Elton John listener but a must for the enthusiast (such as myself)who can appreciate the artist for his musical energy and creative interpretations that were and still are the backbone of his successful career."
