This classic album was originally intended as a single album, but once recording was completed in France (originally started in Jamaica), it was clear to Elton that this should be a double, despite increasing the cost to his fans.

This album presented classics which would remain with Elton throughout his career including “Saturday Night is Alright For Fighting”, “Candle In The Wind”, The U.S. number one “Benny And The Jets” and the title track.

Candle In The Wind was re-written in honour Diana, Princess Of Wales in 1997 and became the biggest selling single of all time.
