Early Elton
Posted:Tuesday, 10/01/2013 at 03:10am by Greg Easterling
We started a brand new week of Overnight Album sides yesterday with Elton John who has a new T-Bone Burnett produced CD out this week. We dropped back to 1972 for the album, Don't Shoot Me I'm Only The Piano Player, another in a string of early successes for one of the real superstars of rock in his day.

With words by Bernie Taupin and music by Elton plus great instrumental backing by the classic lineup of the EJ band, Davey, Dee, and Nigel, Don't Shoot Me...is vintage Elton at close to his best, especially "Daniel" and "Elderberry Wine" on Side 1 which is the side we tracked this time.
