Notes

First of all I want to thank the people who origianally uploaded these great Elton John concerts. I wanted to make a DVD for my sister that included all three shows. Thus, I have reauthored the three shows onto one DVD. No tracks have been removed from the first two shows from 1970 and 1971. However, it was necessary to remove a few tracks and make some fixes to the 1974 Christmas concert (listed as 1976?) but shows up as 1974 BBC at the end of the video. I cropped out the annoying time code at the bottom of the screen for the entire 1974 concert and converted the aspect ratio from 4:3 to 16:9 to maintain an unskewed final result.





Also, the track "Grey Seal" was originally interrupted by the Old Grey Whistle Test Introduction. This has been removed and the uninterrupted track has been restored with minimal notice. I also removed 5 songs (listed below) to fit all three concerts onto one DVD. I hope I have not offended anyone in doing this. Once again my goal was to make an NTSC DVD for my sister with all 3 concerts without the annoying time code. I thought I would post this compilation here on Trader's Den for any Elton John fans who don't yet have these shows in NTSC format.

I always liked Elton John in his early years, but lost interest in his music after "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road". Thus, I consider this reauthor a great retrospective of his music up through this album. The DVD has fully funtional menus and track information. I also created DVD cover art (included in the torrent). Best wishes, and of course enjoy!
