Heard you, like me, the group of persons to which simply loves Elton John's compositional works and his voice and liked all of his albums would be in the closet, then this CD is certainly the right thing! It is easy to have the first album of his favorite artist and maybe it's also fun to later so typical Elton John sound to hear. However, it is, as mentioned in other reviews, no music, which is perfectly shaped and unobtrusive to enjoy! The harpsichord recurring and partly somewhat experimental acting style is not for listeners who want to hear what times of Elton John. A good example is for me, "Skyline Pigeon". The original version of this album, it creates by hammering harpsichord accompaniment not bring out the real beauty of this piece. If you, however in a new version sounds the title on the album "Do not Shoot Me I'm Only The Piano Player" with piano, is a clear why Elton wanted to record this song again. For entry so only chronologically properly so special about his pieces can be heard on albums like "Honky Chateau", "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" or "Madman Across the Water" but much better. Thus, it is probably better not to be recommended, because who wants to have it, because it was Elton's first album, buy it anyway :-) Nevertheless, I give three stars, so that it is approximately balanced as it as already written, all depends on the intention with which you can buy this album.
