Thank god this gets a regular airing, or else the brilliance of early Elton gets lost in all the later rhinestone and ridiculousness.  What a track... what an album.

Washing out the cattle town
Are you far away somewhere in your eiderdown
Do you dream of crystal streams?

Whoops, I digress.

Great post.

Here is a great version of a time when Elton and I were younger dudes...
