Almost certainly Elton John's biggest seller, save his first greatest hits collection, this was the album that created a true superstar.
Goodbye Yellow Brick Road went on to sell 31-million copies. Goodbye... perfectly marries the various elements of Elton's craft: classic songwriting, glam stomp, R&B, gospel, jaw-dropping performances, soul and a large helping of brilliant showmanship.
The lasting legacy of Goodbye Yellow Brick Road can still be seen with a wealth of emerging new talent quick to praise the influence it had on their own careers. Artists ranging from BRIT winner Ed Sheeran ("Candle in the Wind"), R&B sensation Miguel ("Bennie and the Jets"), rock band Fall Out Boy ("Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting"), add their own interpretations to the classic originals on a sensational bonus disc. Recorded with producer Peter Asher at the helm, Elton and Bernie's influence on modern day Americana, R&B and soul, and rock singers continues to shine through.
