Synopsis

Amazon.com
During Elton John's most commercially successful period, between 1970 and 1975, he was also at his most prolific. Usually producing two albums a year, he also knocked off a dozen or so non-LP B-sides, a handful of demos for other artists, and even a soundtrack album for 1971's obscure Friends. Rare Masters, which brings much of this work together with a handful of other odds and ends (an alternate version of "Madman Across the Water," John's debut single, "I've Been Loving You"), is hardly a substitute for Greatest Hits, but its generally high quality is impressive. --Rickey Wright

CD Reviews

Friends Soundtrack by Elton John
J. Peter Colthup | Franklin, NC USA | 03/18/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I wanted the soundtrack to the movie "Friends". The music was done by Elton John and includes some great songs. The original album is hard to find and because it is a bit of a collectors' item can be expensive. Rare Masters provides the entire Friends soundtrack and includes much more of his early music. I am very pleased with my purchase."
Great Elton John

"This Elton John complilation is a must have....some of his best efforts from before the 'stage' struck them...."
LOVE "Elton John: Rare Masters!"

"This two CD set is awesome! Some of these songs were "B" sides to singles that I listened to growing up--I thought I would never get to hear them again. I loved the "Friends" soundtrack, but only had that on vinyl, too. And then getting to hear the early U.K. singles and different versions of some favorite songs has been SO enjoyable. It's a must-have for any true Elton John fan...as I have been for more than 30 years."
