One of the best album for me great songs to sing along to
It wasn't until I watched Life on Mars and this was played at the end of an episode I fell in love with the song Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
Original is always BEST

Gostei de escutar a história das suas músicas. Parabéns pelo seu trabalho. Deus te abençoe. Boa noite. Marlene.
Brilhante!! Sir Elton John 🎹🎼
Love the Goodbye Yellow Brick Road album and have been listening to it constantly since I purchased it in 1974. It doesn't need cover versions by 3rd rate hacks to validate it!
This album is such an amazing album that still stands the test of time, and is such a good and wonderful Album!
I for one don't need to be reminded how great he -and Bernie were
Omg pass this to Sir Elton; My husband said when he was in high school in the 70s a guy dressed up like Elton John All the Time; Not just a halloween costume he did it all that year of high school.
Elton has the music I have listen to sense my brother came home in early 70’s with Elton’s music and I don’t think any other person in music has touched me in my heart as much and sure wish I have this one last chance to see the real side of today’s Elton and his voice may have changed but sure seems even more great coming from him and will say when I got his 60th Birthday DVD set you can see how songs he sings in the show touch him in his graceful heart , I love you for all you do a really mean to so many and I’m happy for you finding your true one to be with and being blessed to take led to share life with yalls kids . Your a great person inside and out and sure hope you still have more music that has yet to be aloud to come to us all , your the real piano man in my heart . From a man In USA that never gets enough of your music . THANK YOU
Yeah fuck off then. Go see George Michael.
ok, had I never heard of Elton John's version of Goodbye Yellow Brick Road I might have liked it, BUT…I grew up as a Kid Listening to this Album when it First came out. Sorry, the Early 70's Version is the Version I prefer. Hope the Next Gen can get the same feeling I had with Yellow Brick Road.
Love the clothes from the 70 & 80's. Having been in apparel all my life, it was a great time for jeans!
I still have the 30th Anniversary 2CDs/1DVD set from 2003! Wonder how many people can say that?
i love that picture in the background of the astranaught, any idea if there is a print available?
Tony King manages to use 'iconic' and 'taken it to another level' in a single sentence!
yes i like the run down on the start from F 2IN TO C 2IN THEN DM 2IN BFLAT 2IN then F2IN C2IN then back to f2in on the right hand
I was a college freshman when this album was released. I told my roommates, “It’s very rare when you find an album where you like every single song.”
I get pretty tired of re-doing famous albums with "new" people. It never works, and people just want the originals. Plus, years later when the "new" artists end up having less than stellar careers it just becomes embarrassing. I mean, do you really want to hear a Barbra Streisand album with Poppa, Can You Hear Me? performed by The Baja Men?
The cd with the new artists doing EJ tracks was simply excruciating. I bought the box set and when I put that cd on hoped to hear a few tracks that at least did something inspiring but limp, understated, boring, overproduced song after song went by and I just thanked god I was at the end of it, never to play it again.
Elton is a huge fan of young musicians who pay their dues and work hard, rather than those who get instant fame for a few reality show appearances. This is how he gives them the exposure HE thinks they deserve. I personally don't like the new covers here, but I'm too used to the originals.
Yeah really, why attempt to remake this classic album in any way? Sorry Elton, not a fan of the remake. Elton's musical output all the way to Blue Moves is exceptional and so beyond what these musicians will ever be capable of- sorry that's just how it is.
The tribute songs are nice BUT nothing compares to Elton's original voice and recording…so classic that album..top 10 rock and roll albums on any list.
elton, so happy you have your own channel, now I can listen here so you get the likes and hits!
Simply one of the best albums of all time…I listened to it until I wore it out.
HAPPY 70th Birthday Elton Hercules John !
Thank you for this upload, much appreciated..
I liked YBR, but its not my favourite Album, Funeral for a friend is always my most anticipated track on that album.
Its great to see that old footage, I have never seen that before.
Gus and Shiela died when he went off the motorway and ended upside down in his Jaguar in a ditch.
They were returning home in the early hours from a party.
it was never clear if they died from the impact of the cash or drowned from what I remember.
oddly enough he was in the process of suing both Elton and David Bowie.
Gus's greatest work was Blue Moves, but I found that album to be very depressing, and one had a sense of foreboding that Elton and Bernie were going to break up, which they did for a while.
Dee sadly passed away, as did Guy Babylon. So it was nice to see some footage of Dee, Davey and Nigel.
I guess Ray Cooper was not around in the YBR years, I have always found that he made a huge difference to any track he played on. I think he went very much unnoticed until Blue Moves, where he was pictured with the rest of the new band on the inside cover, after Dee and Nigel had been dismissed.
personally I never liked Candle in the Wind, it was a huge mistake in my book associating that song with Marilyn Monroe, Bernie should have used a more generic reference to famous people, rather than using Marilyn's name.
But then, who am I to criticise my Hero and inspiration Bernie Taupin ? 🙂 I could sit and listen to Bernie talking all day long.
I swear that I cannot get enough information and look-backs at the early Elton John years (1970-1975) To me, he really didn't exist after that. I was in my early to mid teens at the time. Unbelievable time for music, in general, as well.
why cant music be this good nowadays
I have this album on vinyl, cassette, and cd, and if I still had an 8-track, I would have it on 8-track. No way, will a tribute album compete with it. in fact, I will go out and buy the tribute album right now.
Elton said he didn't write pop songs…"Bernie helped a little, didn't he?'
hey,u! shut up! he is the best of the best and if u don`t think so,u are stupit one!
10:05 "people get caught up in the celebrity of Elton!" Yah they do, cause that's sorta what he intended. You don't step out in platform glittered shoes and feathers like Liberace and get taken seriously as a "musician". For those who truly know about music, what Elton does is sampling. Sampling of chords from classical, jazz, and soul records he grew up listening to. There's no composing going on. It's more of arranging. And his voice well it's rather quacky, and you can never tell what he's saying half the time. HE knows that and for that reason, he created this huge, larger-than-life persona and visual distraction with the costumes. I'm sure it's a demon he wrestles with. Any good musician can do what he does. They just didn't get lucky with a great songwriter, and a great producer.
Was hoping for an interview… Got a commercial

Those who are dissing the younger artists completely missed the point of the end of this interview, you are getting mixed up with the star like quality and the celebrity side of him, but you guys are forgetting that he is a musician first, and musicians love music, different types of music, different people, the collaboration side of the music, hearing how other people outside of your direct circle can interpet an already famous piece of work, the intent of the remastered version was for creative freedom that is revamped to something different, each of the younger artists may not have a known legacy such as Elton John but they certainly did a great job at bringing a new sense of life in the music.
Friendly is as friendly as it should be – in the career path you tread…..even in misidentified clown garb.
This is the first time I have ever heard of this remake. It sounds worth owning.
All those that don't like you is not on your doing. it's painfully So SORRY, they have ears and eyes and are deft and blind. Your Really One of the greatest singer still with us. Continue your great works of Art. where one can still hear words and Melody's. instead of a two year old banging and yelling.
I really love your love songs. Your the Best.
2:42! Detroit! Yes! Michigan Elton John fan here! That made me smile.
Elton, you have brought me years of joy and happiness.
Elton John is still active! This year, 2016, he has released the album "Wonderful Crazy Night". The singles are "In the Name of You", "Blue Wonderful" and "Looking Up". All up here on youtube!
