Thanks for this review.
My gosh, John, did you really have to flip us all off five or six times as you pointed out the members of the band?? Hahaha….;-) Actually, it was a nice touch. Not one of Elton’s best all told but I really love “Grow Some Funk Of Your Own.” Back during his golden age, when Elton wanted to kick ass, he could do it with the best of them and this song is proof. Overall it’s a C+ or B- for me. I actually prefer his next album, “Blue Moves” over this one. You’re still the best reviewer on the planet….bar none!
Great review, good album but nowhere near as good as Captain Fantastic. Seeing Paul Simon in the background reminds me of asking you your opinion of Paul’s live album “live rhymin” from 1974. One of my all time favourite live albums. The version of BOTW on that album is sublime as are all the songs on that album and tour. Be nice to have a review.
Love this album it’s a memorable part of my growing up in the 70’s my favorite EJ album after Goodbye yellow brick road. Good video John.
