Description

Personnel: Elton John (vocals, keyboards); Eric Clapton (vocals, guitar); Davey Johnstone, David Gilmour, Adam Seymour (guitar); Mark Taylor, Guy Babylon (keyboards); Pino Palladino (bass); Olle Romo (drums, percussion, programming); Jonice Jamison, Carole Fredericks, Beckie Bell, Kiki Dee, Nigel Olsson (background vocals).



Recorded at Studio Guillaume Tell, Paris and Townhouse Studios, London.

Digitally remastered by Gus Dudgeon.

This is something of a reunion album; after working apart for some time, Elton John and lyricist Bernie Taupin, the wordsmith behind John's biggest '70s hits, come together again. Also on board after a long hiatus are original Elton John Band members Davey Johnstone and Nigel Olsson. Even "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" duet partner Kiki Dee shows up, singing backing vocals on "When a Woman Doesn't Want You" and "Understanding Women" (seems to be a theme there). Highlights include the hit title song and the anti-Thatcher anti-'80s nostalgia piece "Sweat It Out," which includes the memorable line "She-devils were ruling Britain" and gives Elton the opportunity to stretch out with one of his best (and longest) piano solos ever.
