Special UK edition 3CD set contains limited edition bonus CD and 40 page booklet. The bonus CD features 'Levon', 'Border Song', 'Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds', 'Pinball Wizard', 'True Love' (with Kiki Dee), 'Live Like Horses' (with Luciano Pavarotti), 'I Don't Wanna Go On With You Like That', 'Don't Let The Sun Go Down' (with George Michael) & 'Your Song' (with Alessandro Safina). Remastered. Tri-fold digipak.

Greatest Hits 1970-2002 is a nearly flawless double-disc set commemorating Elton John's three-decade career. Disc one features what may arguably be John's most essential work: Seeing songs such as "Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting," "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road," "Candle in the Wind," and "Bennie and the Jets" – not to mention "Your Song," "Rocket Man," and "Tiny Dancer" – lined up back to back reaffirms just how diverse, and yet universal, his songwriting talent is. Disc two finds this talent maturing gracefully into the '80s, '90s, and beyond, touching on pop gems like "Don't Go Breaking My Heart," "I'm Still Standing," and "I Guess That's Why They Call It the Blues" as well as his Lion King classic "Can You Feel the Love Tonight?" and the Aida duet "Written in the Stars" with LeAnn Rimes. The collection also finds room for the highlights of his most recent albums, including Made in England's "Believe" and "Blessed," The Big Picture's "Something About the Way You Look Tonight," and Songs from the West Coast's "This Train Don't Stop Here Anymore." For most casual fans, Greatest Hits 1970-2002 will replace the need for collections such as Greatest Hits, Greatest Hits, Vol. 2, and Greatest Hits, Vol. 3, although these collections are still worthwhile as of-their-time retrospectives of John's work.
