All other songs made the Top 40 in the UK and the US, most also making the top ten, with "Bennie and the Jets" and " Crocodile Rock" topping the chart in the States. Greatest Albums of All Time Rolling Stone's definitive list of the 500 greatest albums of all time".

It's also known that Elton's first greatest hits release from 1974 was one of the few anthologies by any artist to reach number 1 on the charts.It was the first Elton John compilation released since PolyGram, which had controlled the pre-1976 Elton John catalog, was sold to Universal Music Group, which controlled the post-1976 recordings. This record/CD covers his career from the early hits to "Songs from the West Coast", the album released in 2001.

If you want only rarities, yes, Rare Masters - but it's not remotely a compilation of material Elton is best known for. I know the very first MCA CD pressings circa 1985 didn't have "Candle" yet, but some of the last ones before a rights change for his pre-1976 back catalog did.

It was certified gold and platinum in December 2002, double platinum in March 2003, triple platinum in August 2004, four- and five-times platinum simultaneously in February 2011, and 6× platinum in April 2016 by the RIAA.

Tracks 3 and 4 were replaced for the 1992 reissue by "Tiny Dancer" and "I Feel Like a Bullet (in the Gun of Robert Ford)" (from Madman Across the Water and Rock of the Westies respectively); the two former 1976 songs would appear on Elton's 1992 MCA compilation Greatest Hits, 1976-1986. It was configured differently for the American and European markets, and also available in a three- compact disc version in addition to the standard two-disc version.

Language - Regardless of country of origin all tracks are sung in English, unless otherwise stated in our description. It was the best-selling album of 1975 in the United States, and is his second best-selling album to date, being his first to have received an RIAA diamond certification for US sales of more than 10 million copies – as of April 2016 the album has been certified for 17 million units in the US. Does anyone remember which CD pressing of Elton John's first greatest hits album (originally released in November 1974) was the first issue to add "Candle in the Wind" sandwiched between "Bennie and the Jets" and "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me"?The two newer hits are appended at the end of the third disc for the expanded editions, leaving the second disc tracklisting intact. Although all of its songs are available as downloads, the album is currently out of print, having been superseded by four other greatest hits releases over the years; The Very Best of Elton John in 1990, Greatest Hits 1970–2002 in 2002, Rocket Man: The Definitive Hits in 2007 and Diamonds in 2017. A proper 50th anniversary box with 4-5 discs, chronological sequencing and various rarities would get me excited.

It debuted on the Billboard 200 chart at number 12 on 30 November 2002, for a total run of 67 weeks. It topped the album chart in both the United States and the United Kingdom, staying at number one for ten consecutive weeks in the former nation and eleven weeks in the latter.

Yesterday I stumbled upon Elton John’s Gold, a Visa/Rocket compilation and I think it’s a promo kinda thing.
