Often referred to as the pinnacle of Elton John and co-writer Bernie Taupin's creative powers and commercial success, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road was the eighth studio album the pair had released in a three-year period. But the recording of the album wasn't the smoothest of experiences. After initial attempts at recording in Kingston, Jamaica, were derailed by the double whammy of industrial action at the studio and further disruption was caused by a world boxing title fight in the town, Elton and the band returned to the familiar settings of Chateau d'Herouville. The album was completed in a staggering seventeen days (including mixing!) and the result is a body of work of huge ambition - kicking off with the grandiose, epic prog rock sound of "Funeral for a Friend / Love Lies Bleeding," and effortlessly segueing between pop, hard rock, soul, and stunning heart-wrenching ballads.
