It was the first Elton John compilation released since PolyGram, which had controlled the pre-1976 Elton John catalog, was sold to Universal Music Group, which controlled the post-1976 recordings. It was certified gold and platinum in December 2002, double platinum in March 2003, triple platinum in August 2004, four- and five-times platinum simultaneously in February 2011, and 6× platinum in April 2016 by the RIAA. It was replaced by " Candle in the Wind" for the UK and Australian edition, having been a hit in both of those countries but never released as a single in the US and Canada.

All other songs made the Top 40 in the UK and the US, most also making the top ten, with "Bennie and the Jets" and " Crocodile Rock" topping the chart in the States.If you’ve already done that, your item hasn’t arrived, or it’s not as described, you can report that to Etsy by opening a case.

That also meant the contents for his 1977 and 1987 follow-up greatest-hits albums were changed, so that "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" and "Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word" (both from 1976) were removed from the former (these two songs being replaced on that album by "Tiny Dancer" and "I Feel Like a Bullet (In the Gun of Robert Ford)" respectively) and instated on the 1992 compilation Greatest Hits 1976-1986, which not only fulfilled his MCA deal but also replaced his 1987 Geffen compilation, Greatest Hits Volume III, 1979-1987. I have enjoyed listening to these cds because they are filled with all of his best loved songs that I listened to and bought as a youth. I'd say the 3 disc version would count as being the most comprehensive collection of hit singles to date.

If you’d like to file an allegation of infringement, you’ll need to follow the process described in our Copyright and Intellectual Property Policy. The single " Bennie and the Jets", which had topped the charts in both the US and Canada but which had not been released as a single in the United Kingdom at that point, appeared on the American and Canadian edition of the album. Of the ten selections for the North American album, two (" Crocodile Rock" and " Bennie and the Jets") were No. All of those excepting for "Grow Some Funk of Your Own" are available on the bonus disc to the European edition.

In 2004, the album was reissued with the 2003 UK number 1 hit " Are You Ready for Love" as the final track on the second disc, replacing " Song for Guy".Personalised advertising may be considered a “sale” or “sharing” of information under California and other state privacy laws, and you may have a right to opt out.
