EJ helped me get through my troubled adolescence and this music will always be special to me.  Ironically I am now "60 years on" and still remember lying in my bed listening to this on my Koss headphones when I was 14.

Not many songs stand the test of time. This one has only gotten *better* with time. Thanks, RP, for playing only quality.

OMG, I haven't heard this song forever!  Thank you Bill!  This song is one of those hidden treasures that don't get the same air time.  I think the entire Madman Across the Water is one album that should be played much more.  Please Bill, help me here.....

I didn't know this song, but it's beautiful.  Sometimes I wish we had a rating for how good/bad the song choice is.  Generally, I'm blown away by the brilliant choices.

A lot of early Elton John on RP lately. A lot of comments reflecting how great he was in the early 70s. It feels like we are mourning the loss of another rock legend. 

 
It's just that he and Bernie made such an incredible body of work, and his later work can't match it.

Almost never mentioned, but it's one of my favorites. After Tumbleweed, Honky, Don't Shoot, but still a good album.

Great album, especially for those introspective, quiet moments.

He was really a great touchstone back in 70s with Bernie and Cat Stevens.

This album and Tumbleweed Connection for me represent his high watermark, as did so many other albums of that day. Whatever motivated the introspection-the Viet Nam war in part I think-of that era generated some brilliant poetry set to music. Why it devolves-who knows, all we can do is savor the time and moment. RP keeps all the great music of then and now in our minds with an amazing mix.

11-17-70 - live Elton, Dee Murray on bass, and Nigel Olsen on drums.  The greatest three piece pop rock live performance of all time.  A&R Studios - on the band's first trip to the states promoting the first album - Your Song was just breaking. For all intense and purposes an unknown band - somewhat esoteric.  Whoever was there at A&R to see that performance saw the dawning of greatness.
Get it: Experience it, enjoy it - 11-17-70 a masterpiece.

 
Listening to this now.
