Elton John / Greatest Hits – Reviewed in 2006

This is an EXCELLENT sounding British DJM pressing of Elton’s Greatest Hits, with all the tubey magic that that implies. These are the real tapes, folks, pressed on that see-thru purple DJM vinyl. 

The sound of course varies from track to track. ‘Your Song’ and ‘Saturday Night’ are GREAT here. The other tracks on side one are good but not like those two.

Side two has better sound overall than side one, with an OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD ‘Border Song.’

The record plays Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus, about as quiet as DJM pressings get.

I love what Steve Hoffman did with this album, but I haven’t played it in a long time and can’t say how it compares to this one, sorry.
