  • Don’t Shoot Me I’m Only the Piano Player

    Don't Shoot Me I'm Only the Piano Player (1973) was Elton John's second straight number-one album in the US. Featuring the chart-topping "Crocodile Rock" and "Daniel," it's a vital pop-rock album with a more direct commercial appeal. Like Honky Château, it was recorded in France at the Château d'Hérouville, aka Strawberry Studios, and the horn players used on that album return here to give a brassy R&B feel to "Elderberry Wine," "Midnight Creeper," and "I'm Gonna Be a Teenage Idol" (the latter inspired by John's friend and T-Rex frontman Marc Bolan). Paul Buckmaster's string arrangements add drama to "Have Mercy on the Criminal" and are a stirring complement to "Blues for Baby and Me." According to John, Don't Shoot Me was the first album on which he felt comfortable experimenting with his vocal style, and he intentionally mimics Bobby Vee on the '50s homage "Crocodile Rock." He also tips his hat to Van Morrison on the sentimental "High Flying Bird" and to the Rolling Stones on "Midnight Creeper," while the more authentic country tune "Texas Love Song" is one of his first to not romanticize the South.
