    The Legend Continues

    "Greatest Hits, Vol. 2" picks up where "Greatest Hits, Vol. 1" left off, including songs of Elton's from the mid 1970's. The way this CD is set up now is a lot different from the version I have. On my version, instead of "Tiny Dancer", it has "Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word", and instead of "I Feel Like a Bullet", it has "Don't Go Breaking My Heart". Neither of these versions are perfect. The only way this compilation would have been perfected would have been if they just put "Tiny Dancer" in place of "Grow Some Funk of Your Own". Still, it's a great collection since all the songs are catchy just like any Elton John song could be. This compilation is reccomended for die hard fans or owners of "Greatest Hits, Vol. 1" who want to continue through Elton's decade of hits.
