Digitally Remastered Edition of Sir Elton's 1976 Double Album Opus that Presented the Elton John Big Band in a Big Way. With Slick Production Down to a Science, John and Bernie Taupin's Compositions Took a Decidedly Darker Tone as their Relationship Became Strained in the Face of Elton's Growing Dependence on Chemical Stimulants and the Pressures of Success. Following an Answer to the Question of his Sexuality in Rolling Stone, his Most Ardent Fans were the Only Ones to Truly Appreciate this LP at the Time of Release. As Time Passes, Critics and Fans Alike Still Come Back to the Fact that Most of These Tracks Are Simply Brilliant. The Opener of "Your Starter For/Tonight" is Simply Breathtaking, the Fun of "Crazy Water" and the Lush Harmonies of "Chameleon" (With Toni Tenille on Backing Vox) as Well as the Stunning "Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word" Are all Highlights of this Work that Still Stands as One of the Highlights of John's Celebrated Career.
