Notes
The performances on this album were recorded during a live radio concert, broadcast in New York by WABC-FM on November 17th, 1970. The broadcast originated at A&R Recording Studios, New York. The Tapes were mixed at Trident Studios, London.

B2 to B4 are a medley.

In the early 70s it appeared that Elton John had quite a few firsts, all in the span of a few years. Elton almost exploded onto the American music scene in 1970, and was so popular that the albums could hardly be released fast enough. From a business perspective, it made sense to release as many albums as possible from a young artist that hit the top 10 with his first two U.S. releases. Further, live albums were relatively popular in the early 70s, and it appeared important for Elton to have one. Thus, this album was one of four 1971 releases for Elton. This particular release went to #11 in the charts.
The energy on this album is fantastic. A young, very energetic Elton John pounds out blues flavored rock. Included is an eighteen and a half minute single that includes "Burn Down the Mission," "My Baby Left Me," and "Get Back." This particular combination is a free-wheeling rocker that just seems to go on forever. Elton was clearly having fun with this set, with the piano and drums often at the forefront. Later the style changes to the blues again, consistent with Elton's early style.

This album also includes "Can I Put You On," a track from the now hard to find "Friends" soundtrack. The movie was relatively forgettable (though I actually saw it in a theater), but the soundtrack was decent and a foreshadowing of the many soundtracks that Elton would later write and perform.

"Honky Tonk Women" is a well-performed cover of the Rolling Stones' classic. The song starts without instrumental accompaniment, to the amusement and delight of the audience. Unsurprisingly, the song is played with blues overtones, and Elton's piano is also flavored with a bit of honky tonk.

"Take Me to the Pilot" and "Sixty Years On" from the "Elton John" album are both given excellent treatment in extended versions. "Sixty Years On" particularly is well performed in this live setting.

Pick up an Elton John songbook and look at the written music...not easy to play and incredibly difficult for an experienced musician. Artists like this don't come around often.



Elton John - Sixty Years On

Elton John In BBC TV 1970

this was a golden age for Elton, nothing has nor possibly will ever come close. His music from this time defines the very best parts of the era for me.
