Still one of the freshest sounding modern EJ albums. Certainly the best of his 90s output.

Keep the music flowing. It usually helps me.

Per Wikipedia, Bernie wrote this album's lyrics in less than 3 weeks and Elton wrote most of the basic music in 3 days! Then the album itself was recorded in a couple weeks. Obviously took a few months between inception, creation and release, but still in April 1973 GYBR didn't exist and by October everyone was buying it. Damn.

Jesus, that's incredible. I feel like it should have taken longer than that just to get Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding down right.

I often wonder how they did those BBC sessions. They would say that the band is playing and they are there being interviewed, but it's often studio versions with a different mix, or with an extra guitar track laid down, maybe they play the studio version with another one or two of them playing on top of it? It's not just the Kinks, it's some other '60s BBC stuff as well. Then later, they would do actual recorded shows.

Yeah, The Who's BBC Sessions album is practically worthless because of that. I'm not sure if it was for certain shows, or what, but it's perfectly obvious a lot of the time that they're just using the studio version as a backing track with maybe a guitar and vocal overdub. It's fun to hear the presenter on this one, though. I love that he can't bring himself to introduce them without talking about their hair.

Yeah, one of the best on an album that doesn't have many songs that aren't great.
