Elton John Captain Fantastic And The Brown Dirt Cowboy Hybrid Multi-Channel & Stereo SACD
Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 158/500!
1975's Captain Fantastic & The Brown Dirt Cowboy could be regarded as a
sister album to Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, with a suitably elaborate cover
illustration and a wealth of strong material and atmospheric arrangements
highlighted best in the wonderfully moody Someone Saved My Life Tonight and We
All Fall In Love Sometimes.
"Bernie Taupin, John's lyricist, wanted to make a self-mythologizing album about his and John's rise to fame. The ballad "Someone Saved My Life Tonight," for example, was about a night when Taupin stopped John from committing suicide with a gas oven. While Taupin sweated over every line, John dashed off the music on a luxury ocean liner. "I'd tried to book the ship's music room, but an opera singer had it for the whole five days," John said. "The only time she wasn't there was when she scoffed her lunch for two hours. So every lunchtime I'd nip in there and grab the piano." - www.rollingstone.com
