His 1993 Duets was widely accepted by critics as a chance-taking record. Although it was to me as well, not many of Elton John's fans were concerned about the album, as much as they had with his other record, The One. The album blends in 15 of the most interesting artists in music at that time, from a short reunion with Kiki Dee, who only was a one-hit wonder thanks to Elton John, on the Cole Porter song, True Love, to performances with artists like If You Were Me, with acclaimed guitarist Chris Rea, and a dance mixed version of Don't Go Breaking My Heart, and his #1 duet with George Michael on Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me. Elton also blends in on one song by himself, apply titled Duets For One.
While the album isn't sold as many places as it was when it came out in 1993, Elton John's Duets record is truly a very interesting experience to listen to. This is one collection that fans of Elton John should dare to get as a guilty pleasure.
Elton John, a contemporary legend, decided to take a stab with this concept album from '93. There are some good cuts here ("Teardrops", "When I Think About Love", "True Love", "A Woman's Needs", Go On and On", "Love Letters" and "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me"), but some pairings should never have been.
Rupaul ("Don't Go Breaking My Heart") is no Kiki Dee. Leonard Cohen ("Born to Lose") and John are just too diverse in sound and style to appeal to the ear. And Little Richard ("The Power") is too one-of-a-kind to sing with anyone but himself.
All in all, however, "Duets" is a double dose of dynamite.

This is a good album from Elton and friends. Most of the songs are not Elton/Bernie compositions though, but that doesn't really matter. Read morePublished on March 15 2001 by Gilly Bean
Who ever does not like this CD is not an Elton John fan. What more could you ask of him? He put his heart and soul in this CD. Read morePublished on Aug. 15 2000 by Ruth Russo
Sir Elton and his friends have a whole lot of fun and it reflects in this cd. Some very nice tunes here, sung by a predictably odd combination of vocalists.Published on Jan. 23 2000
I'm very glad I own this album because it shows that any album Elton makes, is excellent. Elton's duet with the late great Tammy Wynette (A Woman's Needs) is brilliant with a very... Read morePublished on April 22 1999
I found this album lacking in energy and the usual Elton John luster. One of the best songs off the album would be "True Love". Read morePublished on March 12 1999
