Product Description

Product Description

Goodbye Yellow Brick Road is back as a great, double-disc reissue featuring hybrid Super Audio CD mastering (so playable on regular CD players, too) in 5.1 Surround Sound! And, yes, there are bonus tracks-three B-sides [ Whenever You're Ready (We'll Go Steady); Jack Rabbit, and Screw You [Young Man Blues ]) and an unreleased acoustic mix of Candle in the Wind . An elaborate booklet tells the story behind the making of the album, as does the triple-disc version's accompanying DVD that includes interviews with Elton, Bernie Taupin and album producer Gus Dudgeon. Forever a classic.

Even those who customarily dismiss Elton John as a somewhat bland and sentimental balladeer would find much to admire in Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, the best album he has ever made. The track listing reads like an early Greatest Hits collection; it contains not only the original version of "Candle In The Wind" but such raucous and gleeful songs as "Bennie And The Jets", "Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting" and "Your Sister Can't Twist (But She Can Rock 'n' Roll)". From the impassioned opening medley of "Funeral For A Friend/Love Lies Bleeding" to the gentle closer, "Harmony", there are few duff moments among these 17 tracks. "All The Young Girls Love Alice" is a savage but wry tale of lesbian exploitation, and the title song is just short of lovely. Goodbye Yellow Brick Road is both a joy for fans and a genuine surprise for the uninitiated. --David Bennun --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

Goodbye Yellow Brick Road has to be the most quintessential Elton John album. It's the one mentioned and talked about the most. It should be. It is the best double album. Although, in today's world, this 17 song collection probably wouldn't be considered a double album. It starts off with one of the greatest album openers ever, "Funeral For A Friend/Love Lies Bleeding". A classic all the way. This album has a number of Elton's most recognized hits - "Bennie And The Jets", The great "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road", "Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting", and the original, and still best, version of "Candle In The Wind". There are more great tracks here that are just as good. You get "Sweet Painted Lady", which is about prostitutes. Then you have the storysong "The Ballad Of Danny Bailey", which you wish Elton would play in concert. You get a number of great rockers like "Dirty Little Girl", "All The Young Girls Love Alice", and "Your Sister Can't Twist(But She Can Rock And Roll)", among others. But, the crowning jewel, is the highly underrated and horribly overlooked gem, "Harmony". It's the closing track and, without a doubt, the greatest Elton John song that was never a single. That's a crime if ever there was one. It's a great piece of music. The album also includes the rousing up tempo number "Grey Seal". The silliest track is a song called "Jamaica Jerk Off". It's fun and catchy, but silly. There you have it. The perfect Elton John album. The perfect rock album. This is Elton's Sgt. Pepper. A classic in every sense of the word.

In the classic rock era, there are perhaps only a handful of especially iconic, form-shifting rock/pop performances.

The few superlative songs that the first time you hear them, you must ask, "What was THAT?"

Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody, Bob Dylan's Like A Rolling Stone, and surely Elton John's Funeral For A Friend are among the candidates for mention in the above category of history and genre making music.

So, if you are recalling the first time, probably late in 1973, that you heard the wind howl and the bell toll and Funeral For kick off John's double LP, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road and perhaps would like to relive that moment, here's your best chance.

Because the music-17, very good to great songs including the mega-hit Candle In The Wind-has been given an excellent 2014 remaster and now probably sounds as good as your memory recalls it being 40 years ago. Maybe/probably even better.

The box set packaging is first rate, with a 100 page hard cover bound book, with lyrics, a history of the music and times, and dozens of sumptuous colour photographs that surely have rarely, or even never been seen before.

Springing for the Super Deluxe also gets you an essential two CD Christmas Eve '73 live, rollicking BBC performance of many of the tracks from the album as well as a very dated yet absolutely fascinating 45 minute DVD documentary of Elton and the gang done in the 70s at the height of EJ's fame. A covers CD, some B sides, X-Mas tunes, and a few unreleased demos round out the package.

Elton John's Goodbye Yellow Brick Road is a classic album from the 70's and one of the peaks of his musical output along with Madman Across the Water. The SACD version of this recording is sonicaly superb. It is one of the best sounding cds I own.
For my rating system a 5 star mark is almost impossible as that would represent a perfect recording. 4 stars means a must have.

Of all Elton John's albums, none defined his career quite like Yellow Brick Road (somewhat surprising because double albums were not very popular then). There were the hits, of course, including the album title "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road", "Candle in the Wind", "Bennie and the Jets", and "Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting". There were also quite a few songs that should have been hits but didn't make it either because of lack of release as a 45 single (remember those?) of lack of radio play, and, to be fair, there were a small number of forgettable tracks, but of all the albums Elton released in the early days, this was the one that launched him to stardom and sell-out stadium gigs. I bought this on LP (what else?) on release, later I bought the yellow vinyl release (well, you had to, didn't you...) which suffered from degraded sonics, and as soon as CDs started to make a splash in the very early 80s, I bought CDs of all these albums (at the time we thought LPs would disappear!). So, I think this is actually the fourth or fifth release of Goodbye I've paid for.

This box is a bit different than the other releases, though. To begin with, there's the remastered tracks from the double album now on one CDs The engineers went back to the original analog tapes and reengineered the sound using oversampling bit rates, resulting in a sound that is much better than the earlier CD reissues. For that alone, this box is worth the money. There's also a CD of other stars performing songs from the LPs, and these vary between good and great )(and the stylistic differences are interesting to note).
