Music: Elton John & Taron Egerton ROCKETMAN / Mavis Staples WE GET BY
Elton John & Taron Egerton ROCKETMAN
This is a fine collection and interpretation of Elton’s music by Egerton (who sounds remarkably similar). Performances are universally terrific and crowd-pleasing; works as both a Great Hits package as well as a score to the film. Fun… even though you’ve heard it all before.
Mavis Staples WE GET BY
Blues-based goodness by this gospel legend; just a stupendous voice – super rich and soulful. Her voice as only improved with age. Song choices are pitch perfect and the musicians really go for it. Very cool… and I love that Mavis is still beatin’ the drum of Change. VERY cool… and recommended!
