Pure Class

Along with GYBR this is Elton Johns finest hour ( though he has had many coming close ). Every track has a strong melody, brilliant lyrics and the musicianship is brilliant. Classics like We all fall in love sometimes / Curtains never got the recognition or airplay they deserved. I saw Elton do the whole album at the Midsummer Music gig at Wembley Stadium in 1975.
