Background: Elton John’s Greatest Hits, released in late 1974, was Elton John’s eleventh album release and his biggest-selling album ever, selling more than 24 million copies to date and reaching #1 on both the U.S. and UK album charts.
Rarely has a greatest-hits collection been as effective as Elton John’s first compilation of Greatest Hits. Released at the end of 1974, after Goodbye Yellow Brick Road and Caribou had effectively established him as a superstar, Greatest Hits is exactly what it says it is — it features every one of his Top Ten singles (“Your Song,” “Rocket Man,” “Honky Cat,” “Crocodile Rock,” “Daniel,” “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road,” “Bennie and the Jets,” “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me”), plus the number 12 “Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting” and radio and concert favorite “Border Song.”
