Elton John- Goodbye Yellow Brick Road 50th! Elton & Bernie Taupin 9-25

Elton John’s 1973 double album Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, a veritable blockbuster greatest hits package unto itself, is one of those cherished efforts where all of the musical tumblers of masterful songwriting, peak performance, and timeless production just click into place. Goodbye Yellow Brick Road is the definition of a “desert island disc”, an essential collection that has not diminished but, rather, satisfies immensely to this day.

Co-writer Elton John, with his record-shattering multi-year “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” world tour in the rearview mirror, and lyricist Bernie Taupin, just now publishing his long-awaited autobiography Scattershot: Life, Music, Elton, and Me, are my special guests here In the Studio on the golden anniversary of Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, starting the week of September 25! –Redbeard
