Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

4.0 out of 5 stars What a nice mix April 10 2014
By Gis A. Bun TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray Audio|Verified Purchase
You can hear the nice separation of the mix in this release.
The surround mix is based on the surround mix of 2003 and the stereo mix is from 2014.
Only down sides is the fact there are no extras and the option to download the album in FLAC is fine but the FLACs are of low quality [the same for all these releases]. Too bad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Album, Awesome 5 Channel Mix April 27 2004
Format:DVD Audio
It's amazing to think that this Classic Album was produced back in 1973, I Was majorly impressed with the release of the Digitally Remastered CD & then the SACD 5 Channel Release was very impressive, But there has never been a Better sounding Version of this Album than This DVD-Audio. I personally believe that DVD-Audio has a cleaner sound than a corresponding SACD release.
AS a Music Guru ( Molly )here in Australia would say "DO Yourself a Favor" and Even If your not a complete Elton Fan like myself GO and buy this release and see what A true CLASSIC Album sounds like now in 2004 in Awesome 5 Channel DVD-Audio sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars DVD Audio Almost as good as SACD April 18 2007
By Martin A Hogan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD Audio
Hybrid/SACD's are the new wave in music, but this DVD version is right up there with the SACD format. This is one of them - one of Elton John's greatest achievements. I compared this Hybrid to my regular SACD and CD versions. The sound is crisper and definitely separated between the five speakers (not counting the subwoofer). The rear speakers accentuated guitars and synthesizers/keyboards I had never heard before. Sure, it's more expensive, but buy it and sell your old version on Amazon! This also sounds great on just a regular CD player. "Funeral For A Friend" sounds like a new recording in this format and the extra songs are a welcome addition. I can't wait until more CD's are re-released in this format.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must own July 12 2008
By keyboard guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD Audio
Every audiophile and/or Elton John fan should have this. To have what many consider Elton's masterpiece rendered in higher definition audio as well as a 5.1 mix is a real treat. The mix is overall very well balanced and sounds wonderful! I would have liked a bit more use of the 5.1 capability on "Funeral For A Friend", but that of course is up to personal taste. The extras on this disc are terrific, which include some B side material as well as a great acoustic guitar oriented version of "Candle In The Wind". There is also some great video interviews with producer and arrangers, including some great insight at a mixing console with the original master tape cued up. If you don't have this in your collection, you are truly missing out. Acquire it immediately.
