Whether you favorite songs are earlier hits such as Your Song, Tiny Dancer, Rocket Man, Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me or later hits such as I’m Still Standing, The One, Can You Feel The Love Tonight, Circle of Life and Believe it is all here.  The only disappointment was that Funeral For A Friend/Love Lies Bleeding was not in this compilation.   This album was very well performed, recorded and produced.  I would recommend this 2 CD collection to anyone’s Elton John library.
