Surely, Elton needs no introduction, as he was hugely popular around the world. During the period covered by this compilation, he only had two number one hits in Britain although he had several in America during the same period. Since then, he has had at least four further UK number one hits. So while many people consider the seventies and eighties to be Elton's golden years, he has demonstrated that he is not finished yet.
Even in 1990, Elton had too many great songs to fit on a double CD, the most notable omissions from this one being Tiny dancer, Island girl and Little Jeannie. His more recent compilation covering his career up to 2002 was issued with slightly different track listins in the UK and USA included some of these songs (which ones depend on the edition) but several other tracks were omitted to make way for them and the more recent songs. Lucy in the sky with diamonds, Pinball wizard, Part time love and Passengers are among the songs on this compilation that are omitted from both editions of the 2002 compilation.
You probably have your own particular favorite Elton songs. Of those included here, my favorites in no particular order are Your song, Candle in the wind, Crocodile rock, I'm still standing, Part time love, Sad songs and his duet with the vastly under-rated Kiki Dee, Don't go breaking my heart. The song that really confuses me is Passengers. I've never actually figured out what the song is about. Still, it's not the only such song (another is Whiter shade of pale, the sixties classic).
