Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy Remastered from the Original Tapes by Bob Ludwig and Cut at Abbey Road Studios: Elton John in Analog As His Music Is Supposed to Sound
Released in 1975, this excellent autobiographical record detailing the early days of Elton John and Bernie Taupin's trailblazing song writing partnership, was primarily written in the music room aboard the final voyage of the ocean liner SS France from Southampton to New York. In the vein of Tumbleweed Connection, the music bounces between country and hard rock with aplomb and is anchored by the massive hit "Somebody Saved My Life Tonight." Certified triple platinum, Captain Fantastic and The Brown Dirt Cowboy was the first album by any artist to enter at No. 1 on the Billboard Charts in the US and earned a pair of Grammy nominations including Album of the Year.
Remastered from the original tapes by Bob Ludwig and cut at Abbey Road Studios, this audiophile pressing is how Elton John is supposed to sound in analog.
