Not Fade Away: Elton John’s ‘Goodbye Yellow Brick Road’ – His Ultimate Album?

To paraphrase the Ringo Starr classic, it don’t always come easy, and that was the case with Elton John’s “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.” Elton took his team — lyricist Bernie Taupin, guitarist Davey Johnstone, bassist Dee Murray, drummer Nigel Olsson and producer Gus Dudgeon — to Jamaica to record the follow-up to two consecutive #1 albums: 1972’s “Honky Chateau” and 1973’s “Don’t Shoot Me, I’m Only The Piano Player.”

What Have You Done For Us Lately, Elton John?

Elton John has been harshly critical of some of his more recent albums. Give the man some credit, though: unlike many of his peers, he’s put out at least one classic album since 2000 (“Songs From The West Coast”). In his spare time, he single-handedly resurrected the career of his idol (Leon Russell), and also contributed to four other Top 5 albums. This week, the bitch is back with a new album, “The Diving Board.” Let’s have a look at what he’s done for us lately.
