In 1986,Elton John returned to the MCA label after spending the previous six years with Geffen and recorded LIVE IN AUSTRALIA. This is the first studio album since returning to MCA. I DON'T WANNA GO ON WITH YOU LIKE THAT was on hit parade in the summer of 1988,when this album was released. The only other hit was A WORD IN SPANISH,a beautiful ballad with of course,Spanish style music. SINCE GOD INVENTED GIRLS has the Beach Boys,or at least some of them,singing background vocals. Elton even mentioned the popular surf music group in GOODBYE MARLON BRANDO. The front cover features memorabilia from Elton's past(the hats,glasses and wardrobes he wore). There even is a photo of little Reggie(pre-Elton John). Great album!
