Great collection, but...
This is a great collection, but, missing three of this best music: Levon, Love Story, Madman Across The Water. His best music was all the early recordings. If you want a BEST OF, this is as good as anything he has out now. Or if you're new to Elton John music, get this for the overall history of this great musician's catelog.
This album is the fans and newcomers guide to Elton John. With all of his greatest hits and some of his silent gems like “Indian Sunset”
Very nice collection but missing alot of stuff
AND a few of the others songs have appeared on re releases. This is not a bad collection at all, Elton & Taupin are AMAZING and I'll always love their work. Being a longtime fan, I'm no stranger to his early and best known work of the 70s. I don't know much about the 80s but I do think there are lot of songs missing from here, like 'Skyline Pigeon', 'The King Must Die', 'Healing Hands' & 'Ticking'. Price is tad high too.

I am 54 and I cannot remember a time when you & Bernie were not there to help me.
A trip down Elton John and Bernie Taupjn's Yellow Brick Road
This box set, released originally in 1990, and then out of print for over 15 years, is the most comprehensive compilation of Elton John's first 25 years in music. And what a catalog the man has amassed in that time!From the first track, "Come Back Baby" recorded with Bluesology in 1968, and onward, we listen to a true artist and tunesmith grow. This set is as much Bernie Taupin's as Elton John's. Reading the interview with these two incredible artists is a treat in itself as you take Elton's musical journey down his Yellow Brick Road. A must have for any Elton John and music fan.
Mona Lisa's and mad hatters
Love the song, but the download sucked and I was still billed for it... It only downloaded the 20 seconds of the song, very dissapointed with iTunes
Wishing that the ONE song I really want wasn't Album only
I really wanted "Love lies Bleeding/Funeral for a friend. I have majority of the songs from this album and I'm not going to buy ones I don't want just to get one song. Sad really.
This box set...............
This box set caused me to buy every Elton John album made to that point, I am proud to say I still have my original box set from 1990!!!
My favorite Elton John songs:
1. Rocket Man
2. Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
3. Crocodile Rock
An artist so prolific he's taken for granted... Until a box set like this puts the impact of that output in perspective.
