Liberace recorded for a number of different labels during his career, and in the years following his death, a number of budget-line compilations surfaced on a variety of cut-rate labels, so it's easy to forget where he recorded the records that made his career. It was at Columbia, and the 1999 Super Hits compilation features ten of those celebrated waxings with Mitch Miller. Since it's only ten songs, it's hardly definitive, but those ten songs are all winners, containing such staples as "Begin the Beguine," "September Song," "Kitten on the Keys," "Warsaw Concerto," "Fantasie Impromptu Op. 66," "Beer Barrel Polka" and "Chopsticks." There are a few other compilations of his Columbia material on the market, but this actually contains more hits than the others, even if it has fewer tracks -- and that's why it's a better buy. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Elton John: The First 10 Years

What remains from the early years of Elton John’s career? A bountiful discography and an incalculable number of hits of great exuberance and occasional melancholy. For the release of David Fletcher’s biopic on John, Rocketman, let us look back to this marvelous artist’s career in the 1970s.
