  • itunes mastering awful

    I had this when it was a new release and one had to go to an actual store. The vinyl and CD were both good recordings. The remaster job on this for itunes is very sad. There is a lot of compressor pumping probably as a result of trying to widen the stereo image. I'll have to fine my original physical copy to load into itunes as this makes me nauseuous listening to this from the "cloud." Some of us still remember what actual audio sounded like.
  • Fantastic Album

    Lots of great songs on here. Probably my favorite one on here is a track that not many people except the truly hardcore Elton fans know and that is "The Greatest Discovery"

  • The Greatest Discovery

    By Ken Scar
    I bought this CD shortly after it was released in '87 - mostly because, back then, "Candle in the Wind" was new again. Remember the video on MTV that accompanied the release of this live version? Lots of Marilyn Monroe footage cut together with footage of Elton during this concert. It was actually quite moving for something on MTV and I'm sure that's what inspired me to buy this album. I remember seeing an interview with EJ about this concert where he admitted he had an awful cold and afterward thought it was a terrible performance. However, the tapes prove otherwise. If you really listen you can hear a gruffness in his voice, and you can tell he really had to work it to sell these songs in his condition. Maybe it was because he was working so hard that this album is so d*#m good. It rises and falls like an ocean swell, one powerful wave after another. The best song on here, to me, is "The Greatest Discovery", an obscure track off one of his early albums. It's just beautiful. Everyone out there who has kids will be moved by this song. I was 15 years away from having kids when I first listened to it and it brought me to tears then and still does today.
  • Awesome Live Album!

    This live album is the best interpation Elton has done with his songs. Love the symphony playing so powerful on this CD. I also like hearing older cuts from His early Albums. This CD is a great play on a Sunday morning drinking coffee and relaxing. Buy this album at once, you will never regret this purchase.

    I saw Elton John perform at the Civic Arena in Pittsburgh late 80's early 90's. He did at least 3 encores on top of his original show. One of the best artist ever.
  • Just as good now as it was 25 years ago!!

    I bought this album in 1987 when it came out on LP and I was in junior high school, thinking when I bought it, that it could be Elton's last album as it was in the news he was having some throat/voice issue which was going to require surgery. This is one of the greatest live albums put together, Elton's voice sounds as good as it would have in studio and many muscians can't say that. The orchestra lay out for this album is nothing short of fantastic, only the Moody Blues Days of Future Past album past come close in my mind. Real treats on this album is SIxty Years On, The King Must Die, Have Mercy on the Criminal and Burn Down the Mission.
  • Still one of my favorites

    I remember listening to this album when I was an undergraduate in college. Although I didn't, and still don't, consider myself a huge Elton John fan, for some reason I just fell in love with this album. There's something about the orchestra that gives me chills, especially during track 5. I'm so excited to have found it on iTunes after all these years! If you dont have this album I highly recommend getting it. You won't be disappointed.

    ...this was his best performance ever! Watching this video on MTV on the 80's was what made me a fan! Excellent voice, song, emotion and performance.
