  • Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy

    Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy (1975) is not only a concept album chronicling the rocky rise to fame of Elton John (the Captain) and his lyricist Bernie Taupin (the Cowboy), but a testament to their artistic partnership. The album was the first ever to debut at number one on the US pop charts, and it produced the hit single "Someone Saved My Life Tonight," an autobiographical song about John's 1969 suicide attempt. (Long John Baldry was the "someone" who talked John out of it, as well as his troubled engagement to Linda Woodrow.) What's especially unique about this album is that the tracks were written in running order. From the duo's initial struggle to find its place within the music industry ("Tower of Babel”) to John's doubts surrounding their ability to sustain their success once they’d found it ("Writing"), the album exudes a superior level of craftsmanship, complexity, and cohesion. John has described Captain Fantastic as his least commercial work, and "We All Fall in Love Sometimes" and the stirring finale "Curtains" contain some of his best piano work.
