On March 25, the remarkable Elton John proudly turned 60 years old. To celebrate the occasion, he performed his 60th concert at Madison Square Garden, and two days later released a newly compiled and digitally remastered collection of his greatest hits from past to present. This over 78-minute-long compilation is the first-ever single disc to cover the first 35 years of the great singer-songwriter's career.
The Number 1's series is a brand-new line of CDs featuring #1 radio hits from the biggest names in music. This collection includes decade compilations as well as individual artist CDs and is being released by Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) in its ground-breaking, environmentally-friendly packaging format. A first for the music industry, the standard package (both sleeve and tray) will be completely paper-recyclable, continuing the company's long-standing commitment to being "green."
To further reduce the amount of paper in the Eco-Pack, the CD booklet will no longer be offered.UMe is the first North American music company to replace the traditional jewel case with recycled paperboard sleeves and the plastic tray with trays made from PaperFoamÂ®, a new packaging technology from Shorewood Packaging, a business of International Paper, that is paper-recyclable and biodegradable. Shorewood Packaging is the first North American packaging supplier to produce disc trays from PaperFoamÂ®.

No explanation is needed for the 17 number songs that are a part of John's musical journey that is still being heard and played. Listeners will hear the zaniest songs "Crocodile Rock" and "Bennie and the Jets" that some may remember John performing alongside the Muppets, or the still memorable and touching "Daniel," "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road," "Your Song," "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me," a great rendition of The Beatles' "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds," and The Lion King's "Can You Feel the Love." Indeed, a recommended collection without the any unnecessary tracks that some greatest hits packages may contain. If not all, the entire set of songs will definitely become a favorite.
Looking at each song as a Wav file in a Wave Display within Nero, you can really visually see the differences between the discs for each song. The songs also sound like they have a bit more 'punch' to them too. One song in particular, 'Don't Go Breaking My Heart' has the loudness or volume more evenly from beginning to end. On the 'Greatest Hits', the volume starts out very low and then gets louder. The songs sound fantastic on 'Rocket Man: Number Ones' and glad I purchased it.
If you are unfamiliar with Elton John and want to dabble but not with a double disc cd, this has his big hits plus other popular radio hits and you won't be disappointed. Remember though, this just barely scratches the surface of Elton John as an artist, singer and writer (many written with Bernie Taupin).
