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

5.0 out of 5 stars One Of Rock's Greatest Albums Oct. 19 2001
By Barry
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Speakers Corner Edition Nov. 23 2013
By Seeker
Format:LP Record
The original record of this album sounded compressed and a little lifeless so I spent some money on the Speakers Corner Vinyl edition. Much better more dynamic and fuller sound than I have heard before. The vinyl is nice and quiet unlike the MCA copy I have from the 70's. It's not perfect mind you the recordings are inconsistant probably due to the original master tapes. Saturday Night's Alright for fighting comes across cold, but Grey Seal sounds awsome I've Seen That Movie Too moved me to tears for the first time in decades. All in all worth the money to me.I don't know what the Island Records release sounds like so don't blame me if you get the wrong copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deluxe 30th Anniversary - So refreshing. Sept. 25 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I heard these songs so many times over the years, I already have the CD and the Record, listening to this edition was so refreshing, the sound is so amazing, well remastered and remixed, it was like listening to the album for the first time, and the bonus tracks are welcome, especially the acoustic Candle in the wind alone is worth the whole album, Elton's voice so clear and powerful and the music so moving, love it.

4.0 out of 5 stars almost a greatest hits March 29 2013
Format:Audio CD
If you ever wondered why Elton is such a big star this album answers the question. This double album is almost a greatest hits. EJ's famous songs like Saturday's Alright For Fighting, Bennie and the Jets, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, Candle in the Wind are all included. There are some lesser known gems that are some of my personal favorites like, This Song Has No Title, Harmony, Roy Rogers, Danny Bailey etc.

3.0 out of 5 stars THIS IS NOT THE SPEAKERS CORNER VERSION March 2 2010
Format:LP Record
This listing is misleading. This is NOT the Speakers Corner label vinyl release of Goodbye Yellow Brick Road. It's the recent Universal Records Back In Black series release with Mercury Records labels. I know because I ordered it thinking I'd get the Speakers Corner version, which is highly rated, and they sent me the Mercury version instead.
