Elton John Vinyl Club 2017 10 LP box set review

A rather large number of Elton albums were released or re-released on vinyl in 2016/17. I’m including 2016 because There was the Burberry box set in November 2016, which I did not buy because of the price tag. The same albums that were in the Burberry box set were released individually in April 2017, so […]

Video review of Elton John Diamonds 3CD box set

This is going to be a short video review of the new greatest hits collection by Elton John: Diamonds. After writing a long post explaining all the reasons I wasn’t going to buy this, I went ahead and bought this. At first glance, the song selection on the first two discs (and the 2 disc […]

Review: Elton John-Goodbye Yellow Brick Road

This is kind of difficult to review because, though it is generally highly-regarded, I’ve heard some of it too much to think objectively about it. I can’t go to the grocery store without hearing “Bennie and the Jets” on the radio. “Candle in the Wind” has been destroyed due to Princess Diana dying. I remember […]

Review: Elton John – Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy

REVIEW: Elton John – Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy This may not be his best album (I’m sure most people would consider that to be Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, but I’d probably say Blue Moves), but it’s a fucking great and fun album anyway. This is also the first album to ever enter […]

Review: Elton John – Blue Moves

REVIEW: ELTON JOHN-BLUE MOVES (1976) It took me a fucking long time to forgive Elton John for the 90s (“Don’t go breaking my heart” was pretty unforgiveable, too, but that was late ’70s), but as long as I can remember, any time I heard his earlier stuff on the radio as a kid I thought […]

Review: Elton John-Rainbow Theater 1977

REVIEW: Elton John-Rainbow Theater 1977 [bootleg] I probably overpaid for the bootleg CD of this show but I don’t care, it’s just about the greatest thing I’ve ever heard and I think I came in my pants while listening to the second disc, despite the fact (or maybe because of the fact) that it’s just […]
