ELTON JOHN - Rare Masters (1992)

In addition to the expected b-sides and previously unreleased outtakes, "Rare Masters" is notable for including in its entirely the soundtrack John and Bernie Taupin wrote in the late-'60s for the British movie "Friends". The soundtrack songs are early, unpolished John, but among them is the touching buddy song "Friends," (not the Bette Midler-popularized Buzzy Linhart composition) a minor hit in 1971. Among the many surprises elsewhere on "Rare Masters" is "Rock Me When He's Gone," a gospelly number from 1971 whose raw, stripped-down production emphasizes a feeling that the much better-known "Border Song" only hinted at. A nearly 9-minute-long alternate version of "Madman Across The Water" is similarly raw, and highlights its bluesy lead guitar in a way that John rarely did in those early days. You also get John blasting through the Beatles' "I Saw Her Standing There" with John Lennon. - cduniverse.com
