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).
