EL­TON JOHN

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - THE BEAT -

Di­a­monds

The na­tion has ap­peared strangely muted in a year that should have been full of cel­e­bra­tion to mark Sir El­ton’s mag­nif­i­cent 50-year mu­si­cal mar­riage with Bernie Taupin and his 70th birth­day.

The com­pi­la­tion Di­a­monds is the of­fi­cial marker of El­ton’s chart-top­ping suc­cesses, and it’s hard to knock any record with com­po­si­tions of the cal­i­bre of Your Song, Honky Cat and The Bitch Is Back. For the unini­ti­ated look­ing for a primer on one of the great pop ca­reers of mod­ern times, Di­a­monds could just be your best friend.
