I always liked Elton’s singles, but never really got into him seriously until a few years ago. I was very struck by scene in Almost famous, where everyone on the tour bus was singing along to Tiny Dancer. Because it wasn’t a single in the UK, I’d never heard it before. So I bought the album it was on, Madman Across The Water and really enjoyed it, although what used to be side 2 does tail off a bit. Then I bought Goodbye Yellow Brick Road. Again, lots of very good songs, but also some that weren’t that special. After that I bought Tumbleweed Connection and after a few plays I realised this was the one: a truly great album. I couldn’t stop playing it for a while, but it’s become one of my favourite albums and to me, is up there with the likes of Revolver, Pet Sounds and Forever Changes: in other words, a classic!

I recently bought the DVD-Audio surround-sound version of GYBR, and OMG is it fabulous! This album was a big part of the soundrack of my high school years, and I have always been very partial to it. There is nothing quite like the EJ/Bernie Taupin collaborations and this album, although there are a few misses, has some real gems. Funeral for a Friend/Loves Lies Bleeding, Grey Seal, This Song's Got No Title, Roy Rogers, Harmony, and those were not even the hits. This album had no less than four top-ten hits, in both the US and the UK, in Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting, the title cut, Candle in the Wind, and Bennie and the Jets. The added dimesion of surround sound really highlights the layers that went into many of these songs.

I loved Madman across the Water, too, but I do agree the second half runs out of steam. Tumbleweed Connection is indeed a classic, but Don't Shoot Me I'm Only the Piano Player is another of my personal favorites. Blues for Baby and Me, Have Mercy on the Criminal, Elderberry Wine and Daniel are all great songs.

Yellow Brick Road and Greatest Hits, released in the 70's are my favorite.

He was my second fav after my first album Kiss Alive(jeeezus)
