Elton John - 11/17/70
one of my favourite live albums from a studio
I literally wore my vinyl out on my first purchase of this album. Wore it out.
A terrific show and Amoreena, which I believe was added to a later release, has got to be my all time favourite Elton John song.
+1 on all of this.
"Lately... I've been thinkin'... How much I miss my lady...."
I learned to play all the songs from this album on the piano and continue to play them to this day. I used to play Sixty Years On on stage (in my previous life as a musician), and Burn Down the Mission is still a favourite of mine to play. That and Take Me to the Pilot.
(As an aside, if you've even seen Ben Folds play live, it's obvious the debt he owes to Elton from this period.)
There are bootleg versions of this concert with the entire setlist, all 13 songs. Well worth seeking out.
