Dying Wish Fulfilled
Annisha | Charlottesville, VA USA | 06/04/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"My father was dying of pancreatic cancer in April 2010. He lived in a remote town in Minnesota and I lived in Virginia. Because he was a very guarded and private man, I didn't know much about him or his interests. During one of our last phone visits, I took a chance and asked him if he had a particular preference in music. He said that his favorite artist was Elton John, but that he didn't have any of his recordings. I jumped on Amazon.com and was thrilled to find this collection which had all his favorites, including "Daniel". Wanting to make one last effort to "connect", I had it shipped overnight as a surprise, hoping he'd get to listen to it before it was too late. He called the next evening with a smile in his weak voice, saying it had arrived that afternoon and that he'd been listening to it nonstop. To my knowledge, he was listening to it to the very end. Thanks, Amazon."
A Great Beginner For Those Just Discovering The Brilliance O

"If you're younger and weren't around during Elton John's
emergence and peak creative streak in the 70's and are
just discovering the brilliance of the work that he and
Bernie Taupin (and his amazing band) brought to life,
then this is a good starting point for you.
If you are longtime fan who just wants a collection of most
of his career-spanning hits and don't always have the time
to go through every album, then this is also a great
collection to have. The remastering sounds great and
most of the hits are on here with the exception of fan
faves like "Skyline Pigeon", "Harmony" and other stellar
album tracks which may not have been released as singles,
but were definitely loved in their time and beyond!
But as is the case with all great artists' whose careers
span decades and who've enjoyed such a high level of
artistic creative achievement for so long, it seems almost
impossible to create an all-encompassing compilation which
will satisfy every fans taste!
However, this one is very pleasing with the
exceptions of the ones I mentioned above and
maybe a few more! Still worth buying. (-:
I also like that they put a few of the songs from
Elton's "iffy" early 80's period when his music had
kind of fell from grace and he was himself swirling
in the storms of addiction and indentity issues.
Then, in the mid 80's he enjoyed a return to form,
the top of the charts, and began to conquer his demons head on!
By the early 90's, he and Bernie Taupin had separated
for awhile, then gotten back together to write sporadically,
but Elton was expanding his collaborations into broadway
and film scoring, working with the likes of
Andrew Lloyd Webber and others, coming into another
fertile period creatively that has sustained
his legend into the 21st Century!
If you're not familiar with the 70's albums,
perhaps this compilation will inspire you to go
back and discover what made Elton John one of
modern music's immortals!"
