Elton John’s Great­est

Hits al­bum shot to num­ber one on Bill­board’s pop chart in 1974. It re­mained on the charts for 67 weeks and sold 24 mil­lion copies world­wide. To­day, Elton John is the third most suc­cess­ful artist in the his­tory of the Amer­i­can charts!

Mar­lon Brando’s fa­mous cry “Stella!” first boomed across the stage when A Street­car
