The One is the twenty-third studio album by the English singer-songwriter Elton John, released on 22 June 1992. It was recorded at Studio Guillame Tell in Paris, produced by Chris Thomas and managed by John Reid. The album was dedicated to Vance Buck, and its cover artwork was designed by Gianni Versace. The One spent three consecutive weeks at without reaching in the UK, being kept off the top spot by Lionel Richie's Back to Front compilation
Elton John once claimed that he could remember The One among his latter-day albums because it was the first he recorded without drugs or alcohol. If true - and there's no reason to doubt him - that could be the reason why this has more character than most of his albums since the early '80s, holding together well in its deliberately measured, mature songcraft by Elton and Bernie Taupin. If there's any real problem, it's that the album just doesn't have many memorable songs. Though they're all reasonably melodic and well-crafted, none of the them have memorable musical or lyrical hooks and, if anything, Chris Thomas' production is too evenhanded. Still, even if it isn't memorable, it does represent a meaningful move forward, just because it does sound warmer and more considered than the records that immediately preceded it. Track Listing.

Recorded live at Madison Square Garden, this album captures the magic of an Elton John live show for those that weren’t able to be there! Hearkening back to the 1970s pop glitter explosion that made Elton an international treasure, it features major hits and well-known classics including Crocodile Rock, Elton’s first North American and his touching ballad Candle in the Wind. It also inlcudes guest appearances by such artists as Bryan Adams, Mary J. Blige and Kiki Dee.
This was John's first album project since his rehabilitation from drug and alcohol addictions and bulimia in 1991. This is the last studio album to feature his Roland RD-1000 digital piano. Elton switched to the Yamaha Disklavier piano shortly after which he plays to this day. The 58 minute album is the longest non-double album for Elton John. All songs by John/Taupin, except where noted. Sweat it Out" – 6:38. Runaway Train" (John/Taupin/Romo) – 5:23 (Duet with Eric Clapton).
The One" is Elton John's greatest album from the 90's. He finally got his act together and recorded an enjoyable record to listen t. The One,Simple life," and the heartbreaking song about a son lossing his life to Aids,"The Last Song," were huge hits. When a Women doesn't want you," is a fantastic ballad,and the duet with.
