Don't buy 21 At 33 for the sake of White Lady White Powder, which is a cringemaking embarrassment. Buy Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, Don't Shoot Me I'm Only The Piano Player, Honky Chateau, Elton John & if you like those, Too Low For Zero, Songs From The West Coast & the new one, The Captain & The Kid.

Glad you enjoyed it DF. He's great live.

I like a lot of Elton's music and have downloaded a few of his songs......but the only album I thought about buying of his was the duets one and it was solely for his song with Don. Unfortunately, I can't find the song anywhere and I really don't feel like spending money right now on a cd that I would only listen to the one song

Elton's duets album is pretty hard to find. I was able to find it at a used book store here in Dallas called Half Price Books in very good conditon for $5 about 3 months ago. I was glad that I found it and yes the only reason I bought it was for the duet with Don.
BTW, I really do like Shakey Ground (their duet).

I agree--Shakey Ground is a good song. I have it on a cassette, if you can believe that--which I bought years ago because I was an Elton fan, and now that song is my favorite song on it, because I am such a huge Don fan!

Oh DF, that surely was something special to see Elton John. On May 1 a German TV station broadcast concerts for 24 hours including Elton John. It was a fantastic show and some people in the audience had tears in the eyes while he was singing Candle In The Wind. I really wish I could see him too.

Not really a live concert but currently I'm listening to a concert on the radio... Take That. It was recorded last year in London. Thank God, I found a software yesterday so I can tape it on my computer.
I will do the same with the Keith Urban show in Hamburg on May 28 so I will have a memory.
Brooke or Maleah, if you want a copy...

I taped the Take That concert and the software worked just fine.
