Elton John - Diamonds
Do we need yet another Elton John "Greatest Hits/Best Of" collection I wonder? After all, thee have been around five or six of them. For many people, probably. However if, like me, you are a bit of a "remasters junkie", buying the same music again and again in search of the perfect remaster then this 51 song collection will suit you down to the ground.
The remastering is SUPERB. I have all Elton John's albums and were it not for the great sound, I would not have considered purchasing this. It is money well spent. The sound is big, bassy, rich and warm. Crystal clear and well defined. Excellent. All the usual suspects are there, of course, along with some appealing lesser known ones - "Little Jeannie", "Electricity", "Looking Up", "That's What Friends Are For" and the lovely early song "Skyline Pigeon".
If you want a "greatest hits and more" in great remastered sound, you can't go too far wrong with this.
