959. Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy

Elton John (whose real name was Reginald Dwight) was beyond huge through the first half of the 1970s  – ten studio albums (plus one soundtrack) between 1969 and 1975 and none of them awful. Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy was the last truly good one though, with the title track still sounding darned fine, mainly because it didn’t get overplayed at the time unlike so much else.
