This thread made me change my playlist for the day - I forgot how great some of his songs are!

I had Crocodile Rock on 45, and played it constantly on my little plastic record player.

Me too... One of my earliest music memories is playing my Shaun Cassidy "Da Doo Run Run" 45 on my Pluto turntable... the arm of the turntable was a dog bone

Can you screen shot this? I've been listening to him a ton lately but I feel like I'm missing out on a lot of good studio stuff. The fact that he had a song as good as Mona lisas & mad hatters that I didn't even hear until my 20's makes me want to uncover any more gems like that.

Yeah, I'll type it out tomorrow. To start though, just listen to Tumbleweed Connection a few times through.

Seriously though, don't miss 1989's Sleeping with the Past, 1992's The One, 1995's Made in England, 2001's Songs from the West Coast and last year's The Diving Board. Oh, and the collaboration with Leon Russel from 2010, The Union.

I love all the studio albums from after Reg Strikes Back and onward. Except that shite Duets.

Here are some great songs from that era:

Healing Hands
Whispers
Club at the End of the Street
Simple Life
Sweat it Out
Whitewash County
The Last Song
House
Latitude
Lies
If the River Can Bend (from 1997's The Big Picture)
The Panic in Me (from 2000's The Road to El Dorado soundtrack)
The Emperor's New Clothes
American Triangle
Birds
I Want Love
Turn the Lights Out When You Leave (from 2004's Peachtree Road)
Postcards from Richard Nixon (from 2006's The Captain & the Kid)
The Best Part of the Day
5th Avenue (bonus song from latest album)
Oceans Away
Oscar Wilde Gets Out
A Town Called Jubilee (reminds of something from Tumbleweed Connection)
Home Again

Yeah, I'm a big fan of 'Made in England'. Wish I could snag that one on Vinyl to go with the rest of the discography I've gotten.

Funeral for a Friend, Love Lies Bleeding is such a bad ass way to open a show.

Listening to Skyline Pigeon now, actually. And you're right, Empty Sky's a great tune. But for the most part, if I wasn't a completist, I'd probably have smashed the album and thrown it out by now.

I love Idol from Blue Moves. Hell, that whole album is underrated.

I see the unabridged audio book is read by the guy who played him in the movie (haven't seen it yet) and Elton himself.

Official '69 through the Early '70s, all the way up to 1976 then mid-90's + fuck everything from 1977 to 1988 with a few exceptions Elton John Thread

Nashville Skyline by Dylan. Some call it the first “alt country” album.
