Elton John
Captain Fantastic & the Brown Dirt Cowboy

  (Item #: john_capta_1804) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • You'll find superb Double Plus (A++) sound or close to it on both sides of this relatively quiet UK pressing
  • Includes two of our favorites: (Gotta Get A) Meal Ticket and the massive hit Someone Saved My Life Tonight
  • 5 stars: "Elton John and Bernie Taupin recalled their rise to power in Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy, their first explicitly conceptual effort since Tumbleweed Connection. It's no coincidence that it's their best album since then, showcasing each at the peak of his power, as John crafts supple, elastic, versatile pop and Taupin's inscrutable wordplay is evocative, even moving."
