The title of this Elton John album is very catching, something that everyone might like to have in their repertoire. The most memorable song is Daniel. It is as touching as Candle in the Wind.

The reason I got this version - SHM-CD made in Japan paper sleeve vintage lp version look, expecting a super great sound, it says it was mixed in 20 bit mastering, I felt it sounded as a regular remastering, the look is good, I wasn't wowed, I enjoyed it being a classic album, I wanted more from the sound, it doesn't say anywhere that it is SHM, but 20 bit maybe was referring to that, what I am saying is a regular remastering CD would've been enough, would've loved an SACD version though, still a great album from Elton.

"Don't Shoot Me" tends to be dismissed by critics since it fell after Elton's breakthrough #1 LP, "Honkey Chateau", and just prior to Elton's bombastic double album "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road". This LP has much of the charm of Honkey Chateau and its hit tracks (#1 Crocodile Rock, #2 Daniel) actually charted higher that the two hits from the excellent Honkey Chateau effort. This is a rollicking piano based effort with key pounding tunes such as "Elderberry Wine" and "Teacher I Need You" that could have been top 30 hits in their own right. The ballads are memorable ranging from the C&W influenced "Texas Love Song" to the lushly orchestrated "High Flying Bird", but the best is the sitar-based "Blues For My Baby and Me".
Lots to appreciate on this album - his last album with Taupin churning out rather innocent lyrics - as Elton debarked from the early stages of his classic period to the more bombastic middle stages where his fame became even more pronounced and Taupin's lyrical efforts became more cumbersom and mysoginistic.
Daniel may ultimately become Elton's most beloved track.

Solid from start to finish! This is classic Elton, fun rockers and very nice ballads! This also features one of Elton's strongest backing bands!

The bad news for Elton's hard rock fans in 1973 was that the guy who made "Madman Across The Water" less than two years before had left the building. In his place was a pop craftsman with a keen interest in making music for the masses.
The good news, of course, was Elton's arrival as a full-fledged pop star came with some terrific music, still very enjoyable more than a quarter century later. Actually, his pop leanings were in evidence in 1972 with the release of "Honky Chateau," but this time the gloves are off, and his aim is clearly Casey Kasem country. The result was his first two top-five singles in the U.S., the chart-topping "Crocodile Rock" and #2 hit, "Daniel." "Don't Shoot Me" reached the top of the charts, too, just as "Honky Chateau" did.
If you like "Honky Chateau," chances are good you will like "Don't Shoot Me, I'm Only The Piano Player," which in many ways feels like a sequel. The title, for instance, sounds like something the singer in "Honky Cat" might have said if offered an extra chorus. "Crocodile Rock" deals with a faithless girlfriend named Susie, while someone with the same name and inclinations also appears in a song named after her on "Honky Chateau."
The two hits on "Don't Shoot Me," painful as it is to say, aren't as enduring as the hits on "Honky Chateau." Frankly, both "Daniel" and "Crocodile Rock" suffer from radio overplay in a way "Honky Cat" and "Rocket Man" don't. That's not to say they aren't great songs, just less enduring. Elton works in some interesting keyboard tones with "Daniel" and plays to the '50s nostalgia craze (quoting Pat Boone, ye gads!) with "Croc Rock," a song I grooved to as a youngster when it first came out and dearly love today. Yet when it comes on my stereo, my focus sometimes wanders a bit.

After "Honky Chateau" and its subsequent hit singles "Honky Cat" and "Rocket Man" proved Elton could rock as good as he did ballads, Elton shot to # 1 with 1973's "Don't Shoot Me I'm Only The Piano", a classic album with great songs from start to finish.
The classic Elton sound can be found here, especially on the hits "Crocodile Rock" and "Daniel", which still sound as fresh and as innovative as they did 31 years ago. He shows that he still is a true balladeer with the heartshattering "Blues For My Baby And Me" and "High Flyin' Bird" (the latter, with its surreal harmonies, is a sheer Beach Boys tribute). Elton the rocker bursts out with "I'm Gonna Be A Teenage Idol", "Elderberry Wine" and the Bobby Vee - inspired "Teacher, I Need You".
The bonus tracks give the album some extra strength. I especially the carefree "Jack Rabbit" and his aching remake of "Skyline Pigeon" that was unjustly banished to a b - side when it was first released. "Screw You" and "Whenever You're Ready (We'll Go Steady Again)" were also very good.
I really think that this a truly essential album. It is Elton nearing his peak, showing that he was a predominant musical force that would be around making classic records and albums for years and years to come.
