Product Description

Product Description

The hit title track; Bennie and the Jets; Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting , and more.

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

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.

The HD Audio version contains 3 different version. Two stereo version with different encoding and a multi-channel
version. The restored quality is excellent as there is very low level tape hiss and sound is pristine; distinct, clear.
and full range. It seems as if you are listening live. The only negative is the drum sounds are spread all over the
room. Cymbals to the side and drums across the front. Feels like you are seated inside the drum set.

"Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" is, for many people, the best Elton John album ever released. A double album gave his fans plenty of tracks to listen to, and he and Bernie Taupin were at the peak of their collaborative efforts. Even now when looking back at Elton's entire career up to now, this album stands out as one of the high-points, if not the high point of his long and tremendous career.

The album has a tremendous start as "Funeral for a Friend" is a great opening for the album, building to a magnificent crescendo and then transforming into "Love Lies Bleeding" which is the other part of the first track. "Candle in the Wind" is a piece which seems to get more and more popular as time goes on, and of course Elton reworked it when Princess Diana passed away in a tribute to her. Though I was never a huge fan of "Bennie and the Jets", one can appreciate the diversity it brings to the album as well as its reaching number one on the charts. Oddly enough Elton didn't want it on side one of the album, nor did he want it released as a single. "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" is of course the title track and was the opening track on side two of the double album and is one of Elton John's best songs of all time. "This Song has No Title" is the next piece, and not surprisingly it is a step down in quality from the first four tracks, though still very pleasant as is "Grey Seal" which follows. "Jamaica Jerk-Off" is an enjoyable light piece leading into the more somber "I've Seen That Movie Too", which is a strong finish to the first half of the double album.

"Sweet Painted Lady" is a fairly weak start to the second half of the album, as it is one of my least favorite tracks on the album. It is not horrible, but fairly average in my view.
