Elton John has had too many hits over the last three decades for the 12 songs in this collection to seriously be considered his "greatest," but that's hair-splitting. This hourlong concert, performed by John, his band, and several guest singers before a packed house at New York's Madison Square Garden in October 2000, certainly does contain some of his (and lyricist Bernie Taupin's) best and most popular tunes, like "Candle in the Wind," "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road," "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me," and "Your Song." And while Elton is a rather unlikely pop star these days--chubby, middle-aged, far less flamboyant than in his '70s heyday--he can still put on a good show, and that's just what he and his band (including longtime cohorts Davey Johnstone on guitar and Nigel Olsson on drums) do.
Some of his choices for guests are a bit puzzling: Bryan Adams adds little excitement to "Sad Songs (Say So Much)," while singer Ronan Keating of the British group Boyzone, a virtual unknown in the United States, is superfluous on "Your Song," perhaps Elton's most enduring tune (revived to considerably better effect on the Moulin Rouge soundtrack). On the other hand, Billy Joel is a good foil for Elton on "Yellow Brick Road," Mary J. Blige adds some soulful fervor to "I Guess That's Why They Call It the Blues," Kiki Dee shows up to duet with Elton on "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" for the first time in several eons, and the young American singer Anastacia is a revelation on a hard-rocking "Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting." --Sam Graham --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This would have been great had he put something out similar to "Here and There", where the first part was an intimate, "unplugged" performance, and the second half was more of a rock show.
There should be a video collection from past and present compiled in 2 DVDs. I think it's gresat to see him in the early days doing "Your Song" when he really didn't have much money, or some of the live shows he did for TV that haven't been seen in years. Not to mention all the videos he's done since the mid-70s. I remember seeing "Step into Xmas" and "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" as promo videos. I think having it end with the "West Coast" videos would be great. I'm disappointed that they are passing off this show as a "Greatest Hits" DVD, with the same cover as Greatest Hits 1970-2002.
Only the video compression is not at the level. The long shoot are affected by bad video compression (seen on my 3 meter base projector screen) and the video definition is poor. Seems to be a typical PAL to NTSC conversion but I am not sure of this. Finally I want to advice this DVD to all the Elton fans, especially for sound and track selection.
Aside from the dreadful DTS, Elton John's voice continues to decline over the years. Let's be fair, we know he had vocal chord operations a few years ago. I have no problem with his piano playing, but his voice is horrible, and it is a far cry from what he used to sound like.
When the CD of this came out, it was slammed by the critics for the same 'voice' problems I've just mentioned. On top of that, his decision to invite stars like Bryan Adams and Ronan Keating onto stage make no sense. Why get other people to sing your song worse than you now do?
The DVD picture quality is disappointing too, there's no reason why it couldn't have been clearer.
The choice of songs is acceptable, but let's face it, when he get's to the awful 80's tunes, you have to wonder why he just didn't focus on the 70's stuff throughout. Elton John's best years were from 1970 to 1980.
In 1998 we saw Elton John and Billy Joel in concert in Sydney when they were touring together. Elton played the first half, then Billy took over. Elton sounded awful at that concert, whereas Billy sounded fantastic. Billy sang every word clearly, whereas Elton slurred and hurried up every tune. Everyone in our row agreed that Elton put on a poor show.
This DVD is for true fans only.

Elton John can't sing the old songs as he once did, so he cranks up the lights and the glitz and the volume. Rather uneven with a series of duets interspersed. Read morePublished on July 11 2004 by My Twin
