Best Buy Customer Reviews

A great early document of Elton's early shows Posted by: from: Azusa, California on 11-17-70 (titled 17-11-70 everywhere else in the world,) is Elton John's first live album issued on April 9th, 1971. It features six of the 13 songs Elton and his band consisting of Dee Murray (bass,) and Nigel Olson (drums,) performed live at A&R Recording Studios in New York City on November 17, 1970. The live in the studio concert was broadcast live on WABC-FM. The performance is good idea of how Elton's early concerts were. Just the three of them pounding out an exciting and powerful set. Elton will return to this format of concerts when he's in the mood, but this is the best record of it. As I mentioned, the original LP release included six songs. The 1992 CD was a copy of the original album with the original mix. The 1995 and 1996 CD re-issues are re-mixes done by the late Gus Dudgeon. Some effects were added, but since I haven't heard the original mix, I can't compare. At least a bonus track, "Amoreena," was included on the mid-90's CD's. It would still be nice to have the full concert released, but maybe Elton doesn't feel it's necessary. A deluxe edition would be welcomed. Overall, a good live album which is essential for Elton fans.
