    In May of 1980, at the age of 33, Elton John commemorated his 21st release (counting live albums, greatest hits compilations, EPs, etc.) with 21 at 33. Following the disco party that was Victim of Love, 21 at 33 marks a return to John’s pop-rock style and balladeer roots, and finds him briefly reunited with his hit-making partner Bernie Taupin. Here they contribute the rocking opener “Chasing the Crown,” the up-tempo cocaine song “White Lady White Powder,” and the autobiographical ode to their reunion “Two Rooms at the End of the World.” However, it was John’s A Single Man cohort Gary Osborne that helped pen the album’s hit single “Little Jeannie.” John’s collaboration with Tom Robinson on the album’s second single, “Sartorial Eloquence,” is another (arguably overlooked) standout. A killer horn section elevates 21 at 33, as do backing vocals from Bill Champlin, Herman’s Hermits’ Peter Noone, Beach Boys Toni Tennille and Bruce Johnston, and the Eagles’ Glenn Frey, Don Henley, and Timothy B. Schmit.
