  • Caribou

    Caribou (1974) was Elton John's eighth studio album and fourth consecutive number-one record in the US. A glitzy affair, it includes the timeless love ballad "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me," featuring backup vocals from Beach Boys Carl Wilson and Bruce Johnston, and one of John's best-known rockers "The Bitch Is Back," featuring the Tower of Power horn section and backup vocals from Dusty Springfield. Instead of traveling to France where he had recorded his last three albums in a converted castle, John and crew traveled to Colorado, recording Caribou in a converted barn at Caribou Ranch. The album includes the country showboat "Dixie Lily," the intentionally nonsensical "Solar Prestige a Gammon," the UFO-themed "I've Seen the Saucers," good-time rockers “You’re So Static” and “Stinker,” and the harmony-filled "Pinky.” It’s the 7:34 minute closer, “Ticking,” that leaves the most intense impression, however. A tragic, piano-based narrative about a young man that goes on a shooting rampage, it is one of John’s most moving and one of Bernie Taupin’s most lyrically powerful.
