Another artist that I liked as a kid and continue to listen to.
Scott L Praegitzer
From 1969 to 1976, Elton John released a body of work that meant a lot to me when I was growing up. I can still remember talking my mom into buying the double-album "Goodbye Yellowbrick Road" when it came out. One day when I was listening to the song "Sweet Painted Lady" my mom freaked out and said she didn't think I should be listening to such lyrics. Compared to today, those lyrics are very tame. I can't even understand the stuff my kids are into these days.
I now have all of these songs converted to MP3 and have been listening to them quite often. I had almost forgotten how much good music was released in that short time frame. During the '70's it was not uncommon for bands to release two albums in a 12 month period. Including some tracks from the Rare Masters 2-cd set, I have 127 Elton John MP3's.
As you can see from the 6 bands/artists I have dedicated special pages to, I have a very wide range of music tastes.
