I originally uploaded the video of all of these performances, and many more, in the spring of 2009. I have been planning to post the audio only at some point, as it is excellent, so here you go. I will probably have a couple of more torrents coming if people want them. I can also re-post the video if anyone wants those as well.

All are first generation transfers from my original recordings, from the actual broadcast. There are no copies of tapes as the source for any of these transfers, and most were at SP.

These performances come from ten different shows. Elton performed on the Conan O'Brien show in back to back years. The 1996 appearance is solo, while he brought the band in 1997. In 2000, Elton received the Grammy Legend which was presented by his (ex?) friend, Billy Joel. He also performed "Philadelphia Freedom" with his band and the Backstreet Boys. That is included here. He appeared on "Last Call with Carson Daly" in March of 2002. He played 3 songs solo, and I have also included two interview segments as I think they are different than the typical Elton interview. During the second segment he plays snippets of a couple of songs as well (including "Angel Tree", which is one of the first songs he and Bernie Taupin ever wrote). Finally, he appeared on the Rosie O'Donnell show several times during her run on T.V., and numerous solo performances are presented here. I hope you enjoy these. If you enjoy Elton solo on the piano, you should love these.
