But how well do you know Elton John's discography? Did you know that he has released 140 albums between 1969 and 2013, including studio albums, live albums and compilations? That's an average of almost three albums per year! In this article, we will take a look at some of the highlights and milestones of Elton John's prolific musical output.

The Early Years: 1969-1975

Elton John's debut album, Empty Sky, was released in 1969, when he was only 22 years old. It was a modest success in his native UK, but it did not make much impact in the US or elsewhere. However, it showcased his talent as a songwriter and pianist, as well as his partnership with lyricist Bernie Taupin, who would become his longtime collaborator.

His breakthrough came in 1970, with his self-titled second album, which featured his first hit single, Your Song. The album reached the top 10 in both the UK and the US, and established him as a rising star. He followed it up with another successful album, Tumbleweed Connection, which explored his fascination with Americana themes and music.

In 1971, he released two more albums: Madman Across the Water, which contained the classic songs Tiny Dancer and Levon, and Friends, which was the soundtrack to a film of the same name. He also recorded a live album at New York's legendary Fillmore East, titled 17-11-70.

The next year, he released one of his most acclaimed and popular albums, Honky ChÃteau, which topped the charts in both the UK and the US. It featured some of his signature songs, such as Rocket Man, Honky Cat and Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters. He also formed his own label, Rocket Records, which gave him more creative control over his music.

In 1973, he released two more chart-topping albums: Don't Shoot Me I'm Only the Piano Player, which included the hits Crocodile Rock and Daniel, and Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, which is widely regarded as his masterpiece. The double album contained some of his most iconic songs, such as Candle in the Wind, Bennie and the Jets, Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting and the title track.

In 1974, he collaborated with John Lennon on a cover of Lennon's song Whatever Gets You Thru the Night, which became Elton John's first number one single in the US. He also released another successful album, Caribou, which featured the songs The Bitch Is Back and Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me. He also recorded a live album with Lennon at Madison Square Garden, titled Here and There.

In 1975, he released another double album, Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy, which was a concept album based on his and Taupin's early years in the music industry. It was the first album to debut at number one on the US Billboard 200 chart. It included the songs Someone Saved My Life Tonight and We All Fall in Love Sometimes/Curtains. He also released another soundtrack album, Rock of the Westies e0e6b7cb5c
