Default Elton John's Diamonds

Today I got Elton John's Diamonds and I would like to know if you have gotten this album? Diamonds is supposed to have all of Elton John's greatest hits ranging from the debut album to Elton John's most recent album and it was released to honor the movie Rocketman

Good stuff. Did you get the 1 CD, 2 CD, or 3 CD version?

I got the album with the blue cover and I'm going to listen to it tomorrow. What's the difference between the 1 CD version and the 4 CD version of Elton John's Diamonds? Because the version Walmart had was with a red cover and so I'm wondering if it has more songs and remixes and a DVD of videos

Sorry, I don’t know. More songs I guess? I just know Amazon has a 1, 2, or 3 CD version.

Enjoy it tomorrow

"Best" is too subjective, but I'm sure lots of people have that as their favorite.

Elton John is legendary, probably the best melody writer in the business. Not all of his songs are great, he's had his share of duds over the years but overall he's been an amazingly consistent songwriter and keeps coming up with catchy melodies.

Difficult for me to choose a favorite hit song of his because he's had so many good ones, but I can say this, Elton's period of peak popularity in the USA seemed to begin in the fall of 1974 when the song "The Bitch Is Back" was a hit on the charts. Elton then rode that peak all the way through 1975, he was immensely popular in '75 and I think that was Elton's peak year of popularity in the USA. In 1976, Elton had the hit "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" with Kiki Dee, but his album "Blue Moves" from that year wasn't all that well received. By 1977, Elton had pretty much fallen off the radar and stayed that way until he began a comeback in the 1980's with a string of good albums and several hit singles.

"21 At 33" is a very good Elton John album, unfairly underrated. "The Fox" is a good album too. "Jump Up" and "Too Low For Zero" are also good. "Leather Jackets" from 1986 is an album that some people dislike, but I like it and I think it's a better album than "Ice On Fire", which came out the year before in 1985.

Elton John the music writer and Bernie Taupin the lyric writer.

During Elton's down period in the late 1970's, he had split with Bernie Taupin and collaborated with Gary Osborne for the "A Single Man" album in 1978. Not a favorite album of mine, I have it but haven't listened to it in a long time.

They did team up again after the split. Some of Bernie's lyrics were not the best, admittedly.

Yes, the Elton/Bernie split didn't last that long. On the albums "21 At 33", "The Fox", and "Jump Up", Bernie Taupin shares songwriting credit on some of the songs. On the "Too Low For Zero" album, it's all Elton and Bernie again.
